Red Lion is a blessing to me and the students who attend here. I have worked in many schools, both public and Christian. Red Lion is by far the best school I've had the pleasure to teach in. The administration is supportive and truly care about the students, parents, and staff. I work in the EEC building. Our students are not only taught, they are loved and cared for. We know our students on a personal level that goes well beyond academics. The parents at Red Lion work hard to be a partner in their child's education. They are always willing to come in and read to the students or help out wherever they can. If you are looking for a solid, Christian school who cares about the whole child, check out Red Lion. You will be extremely pleased. I love Red Lion and I hope to remain here the remainder of my teaching career!

I attended the school for 9-12th grade after attending public schools. The administration was weak, I had some very good teachers but I also had classes that were a complete joke, and if you didn't have musical talent there weren't many programs you could get into. I went before athletics were huge in the school, but from what I hear they haven't handled that well. You can put God's name in a classroom but when most of the teachers and students said one thing and acted another way it was hard to see much of Him while I was there. For the amount of money you pay to go there I think you could send your kids somewhere else and get a better outcome. I did feel most of the classes did well with integrating religion while still giving you other views and a good education.

We have our 5th child graduating next year (2012) at Red Lion. It has been tremendous. God is doing a great and mighty work in the lives of the kids there. Our kids have been well prepared for college academically and spiritually. No school has perfect staff, teachers or students so there will be the occasional issues, but Red Lion is a learning organization continually striving to be all that God desires for them to be.

We have three children at RLCA. Having moved to Delaware five years ago, we were looking for quality academics and a Christian education. We found it at RLCA. Our son graduated last year and was able to receive college credit for AP courses. Our daughters love their teachers and friends. RLCA is a great investment for our family.

Being a parent of two children that attended this school in 2010-2011 I have to say that I am very disappointed, this school is all about finances and athletics. The more money your are willing to donate to the school the better off your child will be treated. Myself and oldest child saw special treatment towards athletes several times which is very unfair. I also don't think many of there teachers have had proper training, most of them are husband/wives and family/friends of each other. My daughter told me how the teachers would complain that they didn't make enough which is completely inappropriate. The class size is also very large 23-30 students and they don't seem to have a limit on the number of student's they will accept as they are to worried about they amount of finances coming in. I can however give the EEC 5 stars, the teachers are wonderful and very caring, unfortunately I want to keep my children together so I will be looking into a few of the other Christian schools/Academy's in the area.

We have three children that attend Red Lion Christian Academy and they range from middle school to high school. We feel part of a family at the school. Teachers and students care about each other. They support us a family. We recenly attended Red Lion's Legacy Banquet at the Chase Convention Center and were so impressed with the commitment from the families who attend the school. The school is growing and has students attending from around the world. We enjoy the diversity that the student population offers. It is a unique school that puts God first!

I am a Senior at RLCA and have attended the school since 7th grade. RLCA has prepared me well for college through challenging Honors and AP courses. I have been accepted to the 5 colleges I applied to and will attend James Madison University. This year I have been involved in several service projects through my MInistry 101 class. We are reqired to serve 40 hours but many of us exceed that amount. My teachers have encouraged me all through high school.

Red Lion Christian Academy has been part of my family for the past 17 years with 3 children all starting in PreK, 1 graduating and 2 still in High School. Although very affordable for everything the school offers, the real benefit for our family comes from its core values - providing quality Christian education without compromise. RLCA has equipped our children with the Academic offerings necessary to succeed in higher education, blended with excellent programs in the Arts, and high caliber competition in Athletics. I am grateful for their commitment to excellence demonstrated in their investment in programs, people, and technology. RLCA offers the best investment I could make in the formidable years of my children.

We have graduated 4 kids from Red Lion and have had a great experience....our kids have grown spiritually, mentally and physically. Our priorities for education are: Christian Worldview, Great academics, Christian friends then athletics. Red Lion has excelled on each area. Our kids were well prepared for college academically and to withstand the spiritual onslaught of college.

Red Lion has been a tremendous blessing to our family. It continues to learn, grow and change which every dynamic organization needs to do. The ministry has been able to reach out to a wider community and some of the stories of the transformational changes in the kids lives is remarkable....God sized stories. Unfortunately some do not like this change, but if you are interested in a great environment for your kids, an expansive outreach to the community and a God blessed ministry, then RLCA is the place.....you need to visit and let God lead.

I have two children who attended and gratuated from Red Lion. The education they received was outstanding. The Christian world view which is evident in their lives is largely due to the influence and teaching of wonderful teachers and adminsistrators. Both of my children were highly prepared for college and both would say the education they received at Red Lion was the foundation that prepared them for success. I highly recomment Red Lion Christian Academy.

Great school. I recently retired as a teacher in public schools. I substitute at Red Lion. I am so impressed with both the students and teachers. I have substituted in the elementary, middle school, and high schools. Even as a substitute teacher I spend almost no time with discipline and am able to teach and have productive classes. It is always a pleasure to spend a day teaching at RLCA.

Red Lion has been a true blessing in all 3 of our children's lives. We have been at the school for 7 years and have children at all levels from Pre-K through High school. They have been involved in the sports, in drama productions, multiple athletic teams/activities and engaged in extra curricular academic activities as well (Math League, Science Olympiad, etc.) We chose RLCA because we wanted a school where our children would get an excellent education, have athletic opportunities, but most importantly, be taught from a Christian Worldview-where Christ is central. We wanted what we teach at home reinforced in the school. We feel our children have excelled and grown spiritually as well as academically and physically being a part of the school. As far as we are concerned, our money could not be better spent-investing in the lives of our kids at this critical point.

We have three children at RLCA and we couldn't be more pleased with the quality of education, faculty and staff. The environment there is like a family. Our daughter is in elementary and our sons are in middle school and high school. Each is involved in fine arts and athletics. Our son in enrolled in AP Calculus B/C and AP Physics. He is looking forward to college at a competitive university.

We have had children at RLCA since pre-K. Our oldest will be in 9th grade next year. RLCA has been a great school up until the last two years. It has now become all about football and is rapidly going downhill. I would not recommend this school. We will be removing our children from the school at the end of this school year. Do your research.

Our child attended Red Lion since Pre K, but will attend another school this year for 6th grade because we do not believe the school is what it use to be any longer. The Administration and Church Leadership have changed the school for the worse and have no remorse for what has happened to cause so many teachers and other students to leave as well.
