This is our first year there!! Our kids LOVE going to school. The teachers there genuinely care about each child different from any other school we've been involved in. Great field trips that you'd never get in public schools too. Really happy there.

My daughter attends RAA and loves every minute of her day. The teacher to child ratio is low and each child really gets individual attention. She is advanced in many subjects and participates in team sports. They really welcome parent involvement and have strict safety guidelines to protect the children. I recommend this school to everyone I know.

This is a school that feels like a Christian family. After moving to Redding from Iowa, we picked Redding Adventist Academy because it most reflected the values of a Christian family while providing a top-notch education. Everyone pitches in. Everyone loves the children. The teachers bend over backward to ensure their pupils succeed -- even if it means tutoring them in the van on the way up to Mt. Shasta for the school ski trips. The teachers give their all for the students -- every day. Great sports program; great music program; great academics; and an atmosphere that promotes Christian values by the teachers' examples, and teaches Christian service to others. Coming from a small Iowa town where my son went to a 45-student Christian school, I can't emphasize enough how much the family atmosphere helped my son adjust.

This school is the best. I can't say enough about it ! my son has gone there since 5th grade. The teachers do everything in their power to help the children exceed. The communication between teacher and parent is great. They have a wonderful variety of sports. They teach the love of god and what he has done for them. This school has everything that any loving parent would want for their child. I would encourage everyone to seriously check this school out. They would be very glad they did.

This is a Christian school that encourages the knowledge of Christ. The class sizes are relatively small and there is good teacher-parent communication. This school enables younger children to socialize with other children by use of the 'buddy' system. Students from higher grades are partnered with children in lower grades to help them deal with the issues associated with school. The High School students are involved as well as they will assist with elementary events. There are various sports offered and parents are very involved at the school. Hot lunches are served by the parents each day. All in all This is a wonderful school!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
