We moved to Michiana in 2009 from California. I was looking for a Christian school for my three children. They attended Lutheran school in California and I wanted the foundation of their education to continue to be based on the teachings of Jesus Christ. The teachers at RLA are wonderful Christian people and they truly love the job that they are doing. They go above and beyond their duties as teachers. The small class size, the personal attention, and the Christian atmosphere make RLA a wonderful place for my children. I am so glad I found RLA and that my children are learning not only the basic subjects, but also how much Jesus loves them.

Wonderful school with caring, concerned teachers who are very involved and ensure the students are learning at top standards. No matter the grade, all students interact with each other and are a tight knit group who care for each other, rally around each other and support each other. The sports programs are superior as well as the music program. If you are looking for a school where all students fit in with each other, very high academics, and a strong Christian environment, this is the school for your child!

Resurrection Lutheran Academy is such a blessing for our family. It is a safe environment where I can trust the teachers to teach my child the lessons they need to further their education and also teach the Bible truths that will help them throughout their life. My daughter loves to come to school, and the students here are welcoming and friendly to new students so it is easy to make friends. RLA is a "big thing in small package" we have opportunities like music, sports, technology, and class trips, but the day to day smaller class size allows for attention that bigger schools just can't beat.

My child was bored out of her mind in one of the top public school systems in our area. Bringing home A and B work but scoring below average on standardized tests. After multiple miss-medical diagnoses, by unqualified people in the school system; claims of my adopted child being an "Illegal Allien"; and the request she be held back a grade; we decided on RLA. My daughter loves school, is happy to do all her work, and can't wait to go. The teachers are so caring, that they are willing to help however they can. The work she brings home is years ahead of her public school and Catholic school friends. My girl is happy, critically thinks things through and isn't afraid to ask questions or voice her oppinion. She's not afraid to be herself, to be smart, to be DIFFERENT. The teachers and staff at Resurrection Lutheran Academy have turned a temper tantrum throwing child into a child who wakes up on her own and can't wait to see what the day will bring her. The positive change they have made in her life is amazing, making our home life amazing. RLA is a blessed gift to parents who beleive in keeping God in our schools, dicipline, and hard work.

I have had two children graduate from RLA. They are both now enrolled in a large public high school. The preparation from their teachers that they received at RLA has allowed them to be in their high school honors program. The school has maintains a very positive and safe anvironment for its children. Parents are encouraged and expected to help in their child's educational and spiritual development. RLA offers a great opportunity for children to develop into superior students in a loving Christian environment.

My child has gone to RLA since preschool, he has grown so much fromthe loving and caring of all concerned with thr RLA family, My son starts 5th grade this year and is excited to go to school. We may not have everything that a larger school has but from the Principalto the volunteers at lunch everyone cares for and helps in the education of our children. I have friends who teach in public school and say this is a great school, Thanks RLA for being there.

My child had been attending for some time. He suffers from a lack of focus and has no concern for schoolwork. The school's focus on christianity helped his attitude tremendously, but discipline is not enforced in an action=reaction already set standards. It is sporadic. Kids however do feel loved and appreciated. Parental involvement is as good as it gets all over. Teachers generally try to bring out the best in their students but I felt that my particular child really taxed the guidelines of what was acceptable with accountability for homework. Kid is smart, he just doesn't turn stuff in and isn't organized. When we had a concern over "suicide" there was over the top response. Kinda funny actually that as Christian parents and school, none of us had impressed the Bible's result of suicide upon the students. All in all, I fully support this school.

My daughter started the early preschool for three year olds this year. She had never been in a daycare or school setting so she had (and still continues to have) a little trouble adjusting to sitting at story times and listening to adults other than her parents. Mrs. Moore and the rest of the staff have been extremely patient and understanding. This transition has gone so much smoother than it could have in a more rigid environment. I highly recommend this school. Jessica Fiechtner

If the comment above is because the administration won't spank your child, I say hooray for the administration. I can't disagree enough. RLA is the best thing that has happened to my child. The caring, loving faculty and principal bring out the best in him. The curriculum is great! As this school grows it will become the place to be.

Very liberal school. Not much discipline. Administration seems more concerned about making Money & the New building. Although the teachers seem concerned about students, but have limitations. They have lost a lot of the Students. I may possibly take my child out next year. Struggled this year with returning.

The academic programs will be changing this year. In the past I feel it was all a little too light and easy for an 'academy'. I have hopes for a more aggressive curriculum. The current music, art, and sports are near non existent. The new building will be up and running next year and I am under the assumption it will all flourish. Hopefully more will be clear after school begins this year. The level of parent involvement is not bad when you consider the size of the school. The sincere commitment of a few really accomplishes a lot. I like the religion aspect being kept to a minimum. Church on Sundays is a good place to learn a lot of that information and grow spiritually. I like having Chapel on Wednesdays. The students need to keep focused on the curriculum and how they can further themselves there.

I believe the teachers do the best they can with little resources but I don't feel that is enough for the amount we pay for tuition. For a Lutheran school, they really don't require the students to really get in touch with their spiritual side. Further more, it is difficult to have church participation when there are 4 different churches involved with the one school.
