Posted December 26, 2004

The education in this school was poor. All the school really focused on was their sports teams. There were only a handful of teachers in the upper school that actually helped out the students if they needed help. You would think in a somewhat small school they would want parental involment, but everytime I would walk into the office they would basicly say to you what are you here for. So I didn't get to involed in the school at all. The only part of the school that was outstanding was their music department.

My daughter has attended since 2001 and we are very happy with her education. She has had loving teachers who see her as an individual and treat her education as such.The curriculium is God centered and challenging and the class size allows the teacher to know each child. Communication between home and school has always been exceptional and our daughter's best interest has always been put first. If you are looking for a truly Christian school that is putting God first I can tell you that the Elementary school is definately doing that. We appreciate the emphasize placed on prayer in the classroom and in both the biblical curriculium and the traditional and that RLCA combines them in a safe loving setting. Summer camp is great also !

I wish creation based textbooks were used in the upper school, especially since I am paying for the term 'Christian' Academy. Parents paying for students of RLCA have expressed a deep desire for creation based textbooks, but are being ignored! Students need more discipline at home, school can not do it all! All the teachers love the Lord!

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
