We have found for our daughter that the investment in a Christian classical education is worth every penny.

It has been wonderful to see her excitement for learning that I didn’t see as much before.

RCA teachers provide a safe space for the children. While all students’ creativity and passion is encouraged, the teachers gently and effectively maintain order; and, no one student is allowed to override another or disrupt the class. Students receive a grounding in Christian principles. Learning scripture and worship is woven naturally into the day along with other curriculum. I have seen an improvement in my grandniece and nephew’s behavior and social skills since they have started attending RCA. They love school and look forward to going.
I am so impressed with how they are able to keep the children on track and keep them engaged.

I am amazed at the caliber of education these children are receiving.
– Flo, classroom volunteer
They are so engaged and love the learning environment. I also love that they wear uniforms (a great equalizer), are learning about values, kindness, and God’s way of dealing with any life situation. A very full and well rounded education.
I have visited RCA several times as a substitute teacher and I can say that RCA is developing the next generation of Christian students with the Biblical truths needed to thrive in the 21st century. The RCA teachers are welcoming and nurturing; they provide ample opportunities for student growth, academic achievement, and global citizenship. They seek to create an inclusive classroom environment where learning about Christ holds preeminence and instilling critical thinking and a passion for learning is embedded throughout their instruction. It is apparent that the Lord continues to honor and bless the staff, students, families, and community members that have joined the RCA team.

We appreciate that at RCA our kids are learning all subjects in the context of biblical truth and in light of the Gospel.
– Jen & Brian, parents
We appreciate that at RCA our kids are learning all subjects in the context of biblical truth and in light of the Gospel. We have seen first-hand how impactful it is in our kids’ lives to see faith in action. They learn history in the context of the world God created. They learn about the faith of leaders throughout history. They’re not just learning the Bible during a Bible lesson, but also during art, science, reading, and writing. We love that their faith does not need to be compartmentalized or saved for discussion only at home. We are thankful that our kids, as a result of this, have a firm grasp on the truth that God is with us in all that we do, and that our purpose is to glorify him and enjoy him forever.
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.
– Katie C, parent
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!
– Joseph & Katherine, parents
RCA is like nothing I’ve ever experienced in education. In our Pre-K room, we’ve had an igloo, a rocket ship, icebergs;
– Katie R, parent
I love that I am learning right along with them. It shows them that you never stop learning.
– Mrs. Ruth, teacher
Ms. Painter is wonderful. Her creative side truly comes out as a labor of love.
– Kellie, classroom volunteer
Ms. Painter is wonderful. Her creative side truly comes out as a labor of love. I volunteer during lunch so the teachers can have a break. There were several times she was happy to hang out with the kids during her break. She genuinely enjoys being around the kids. She puts in a lot of effort to come up with fun and engaging activities to aid in their learning. She is such a blessing to this beautiful school community!
