We have found for our daughter that the investment in a Christian classical education is worth every penny.
At RCA, we believe that in order to engage the world effectively and not be consumed by it, the children of Christians need to be properly equipped spiritually and academically throughout childhood. By showing them the broad feast of knowledge God has put in front of us and giving them the tools for taking on any new field, we aim to raise up lifelong, joyful learners who celebrate and steward the gifts they have been given. Our curriculum leads to students whose thinking is clear and whose words are compelling, and who are equipped to lead lives of godly character and purpose for Christ and his kingdom. RCA is the best school option for Christian parents looking to prepare their children for an increasingly hostile world which also desperately needs Jesus.

As parents we still get to be readily involved in our kid’s schooling, but now they are getting so much more than we were able to do ourselves.
We started our education journey at home and were excited to pursue Classical curriculum. While the Classical aspect was very successful for our kids, we noticed that home education may not be the best option for their needs. RCA came along at the perfect time for our children to get the classroom atmosphere they clearly needed without sacrificing the Classical educational model we desperately wanted to hold onto. As parents we still get to be readily involved in our kid’s schooling, but now they are getting so much more than we were able to do ourselves. That, paired with the Biblical foundation that now exists at home, at church and at their school, makes Rochester Classical Academy the best place for our children to learn and grow.
Rochester Classical Academy is just the sort of school to which we had hoped to send our daughter. Moreover, our daughter is always excited to go to school! For one thing, she loves RCA’s themed weeks. During Space Week, our daughter had great fun learning about and even putting together models of constellations, and in Dragon Week, she not only learned the lore of dragons and knights but also made her own cardboard shield, wooden sword, and other knightly accouterments. But these craft projects have been more than just fun; they have truly developed our daughter’s skills and concentration. What is more, with plentiful unstructured playtime, our daughter has learned to be both kind and cooperative with others, regardless of their age. The games my daughter and her classmates create through collaboration and compromise are simply a joy to witness. Even more, RCA makes music and storytelling an essential part of every school day; and we just love that our daughter is developing her memory by reciting nursery rhymes, songs, and prayers. Best of all, all of this is done with our daughter’s intellectual and Christian formation in mind. We very much look forward to watching our daughter continue to grow and flourish at RCA!
