As a 13-year student of Redlands Adventist Academy, I always smile as I look back on my days at that school. The classes are small, so you get very familiar with your classmates and make several lasting friendships. I am now in college out of state, but try to see as much of my class as possible every time I go back home. Also, many of the teachers are willing to work very hard to help students to succeed. Save one, I took every class offered and though they are not horribly demanding, I learned quite a bit and was able to maintain good grades, and am doing well in college. I have great memories of their extracurricular programs as well. As for sports, RAA is a small school which doesn't do that well in competitions with other schools, but there is certainly plenty of opportunity to play on pretty much any team desired. If you are willing to work hard, the coaches will accept you as part of the team, and you will make a lot of good friends. The music program is also good and another great way to get involved. There is also a great Christian atmosphere on campus. People actually care, which is really nice. Overall, I had a good experience at this school and would recommend it.
Overall one of the best schools in the area. The students consistently score very high on standardized testing year after year. The small size of the student body allows for greater participation in school activities than in larger schools, such as ASB, class officers, choir, band, bells, sports etc. The music program is outstanding and the varsity sports teams provide a sound athletic experience and have been quite successful. I highly recommend this school for any parent considering a place to educate their child K-12.
RAA is an excellent choice if you're looking for small class sizes and a Christian environment. Christian teaching is incorporated in a friendly, low key way. Religion is not overemphasized but is a part of everyday. The teachers are bright, skilled, and very apporoachable. The school has no tolerance for bullying and intervenes immediately and appropriately when unacceptable behavior is seen. The field trips are many and varied. The homework is appropriate and manageable. Parents are welcome and encouraged to be involved. The tuition is a bit high but you defintely get your money's worth. Definitely recommend this school.
An excellent school to teach not only ordinary material but to eternity!
wonderful experience,great staff,thank GOD we were able to attend would highly recomend anyone and everyone who can afford it.we can no longer attend the tuition is rediculously high....
Great school, I'm a former teacher at RAA and would proudly send my own child there. Great and caring teachers, and an awesome student population. Would highly recommend it to any parent in the Redlands area.
The quaility of the academic programs is great. Music programs like choir, bell choir, and band are fantastic. The field trips are also great. Parents are encouraged to be involved.
I used to attend this school, currently named Redlands Adventist Academy. I enjoyed being there, nice small environment, but I chose to go to a public school to have a new experience. I currently attend Redlands High School. RAA (Redlands Adventist Academy) has ran up it's tuition fee's to an astonishing $600, a month. I expect them to at least provide books, or at least let me choose my classes, but they don't. I seriously recommed not attending this school because of the high tuition fees for what you get.
Redlands Junior (now Adventist) Academy is the best private school available. I have been attending this school for 9 years, and will be graduating from 8th Grade this year. Although this school lacks a large ammount of students, it excels in having more programs that larger schools can't have because of their size. This school is also technilogically advanced with the COW (Computers On Wheels) and wireless internet. We also have a computer lab where we can study. We just finished our brand spanking new science labratory. Our grades now range from K to 12 grade. We also are advanced in our teachings because of our little size. Our school is also ahead of the game by teaching our students ahead of time. The 8th grade this year was given the chance to be in Algebra 1, while the failing students and the students who did not take the test, will still be in their normal class, Pre-Algebra. This school may not be the richest out there, but the are most certainly one of the best. I know that this school is the best because I have attended for 9 years and have watched out school change through the years. We are also the 2nd oldest school in California. (Redlands High School being the oldest.)
This school is a great school, but compared with other area schools, (Arrowhead Christian, Redlands Christian, Loma Linda) it is average. However, if you are transferring your child from a small-school style school, this is the best in the area.
I am proud and happy to have my grandchild attend this school. The faculty is so dedicated to their students, taking the time to know each one on a personal basis. There is very good communication between the teachers, principal and parents. They have good music education programs and regularly perform for parents, friends and students. I know that my granddaughter is receiving an excellent education that trains the mind, body and soul. My granddaughter's CAT6 exam result is equivalent to an overall 12th grade and she was only in 5th grade when she took the test. Hooray for RJA which is now called RAA (Redlands Adventist Academy).
