My children went to elementary school at Rhema. My daughter Amy is currently graduating Penn State and will be going to Vet School with high honors. My daughter Erika, is a second year student at Penn State main finding her way. Zeph is graduating from Hopewell High and going into WVU for Engineering. My adult children had a great start at Rhema, especially learning to read phonetically was exceptional.

Rhema is an excellent school with a highly dedicated staff and a clear Biblical teaching modeled at many levels by the students (particularly older students encouraged and enabled as mentors under supervision), staff, and administration. Reading the other comments, I know from experience that the school deals actively to prevent and to correct bullying at all levels, involving the parents directly. Rhema is one of the few Christian schools in the area to even consider special needs students, and deals with issues in a very positive and caring manner, providing flexibility where required that is remarkable in a school their size. The class sizes are small, but the opportunities offered to students are diverse (sports, arts, scholastics, service, technology) and appropriately supportive of academic excellence. The principal greets every student daily, and is very positive in working with parents. Strongly recommend that parents give this school careful consideration.

Rhema Christian School has been a blessing to my family! Rhema has provided a Christ-centered environment for my children. I really appreciate that they take the time to reinforce the teaching that is being done in our church and in our home. Children spend the best part of their day in school and we are so relieved that we are able to have them in such a loving, caring, and Christ-like place. Rhema goes that extra mile to personally take care of my children. We are so grateful for the teachers and the staff. They are great role models for my children. We are proud to tell people that we send our children to Rhema Christian School!

Rhema Christian School is one of the top notch Christian schools in the area. The teachers and staff take time to minister the Word of God to my children everyday. We are extremely happy with the academics and biblical integration that occurs with their curriculum. Rhema provides weekly chapels with student praise bands and multiple opportunities to serve in the community it is such a great opportunity to allow students to give back and shine. Rhema provides a family atmosphere and truly encourages parent participation. My children are thriving in this environment. If you are considering Christian education for your family, I would call as soon as possible!

Rhema has been a wonderful discovery for our family. Our daughter attended a different private school for her first two years and never really fit in well. Once she began at Rhema, the change in her and her attitude to school was night and day. We love the caring and nurturing teachers and their commitment to Christian education. We cannot recommend Rhema highly enough!

My children have been in Rhema for 3 years now and they are doing great academically, spirituality and socially. The teachers are dedicated, the class sizes are small and the atmosphere is very welcoming.

There is no such thing as the perfect school, but we feel that Rhema gives our children the best education for the cost. Scholarships are available. We love the Christian atmosphere, varied learning opportunities, and strong foundations in reading, writing, math, and Bible knowledge. There is a great sense of community among parents, students and teachers. Many great role models here. The only downside we've found so far is the lack of additional learning for gifted students.

Everything about Rhema is wonderful. The staff, curriculum, and Christian environment has been such a blessing to my family. When my oldest moved on to high school, she was very well-equipped to handle the classes there. I highly recommend this school!

Rhema is a great school. It has a Spirit-filled Christian environment along with educational rigor. The staff is experienced and well-trained but more importantly devoted to the Lord's work and loving and caring to the students. A wonderful school community.

Rhema Christian School is a private school run by parents of the children who attend from grades Pre-School-8th grade. Children receive a Christian education with excellent academics (to include advanced classes at the Jr. High level). Rhema graduates are not only ready for the challenging academics of High School, but they are also prepared to defend and educate others regarding their faith. Rhema is ACSI certified and staffed with highly qualified teachers that feel called not only to educate, but also to minister to the children. Athletics and music are a big part of our school. You will find the "Rhema Lions" in our soccer team, boys and girls volleyball and basketball teams, as well as our cheerleaders (and Rockettes for grades 1-4). Rhema also offers the opportunity to play in the Praise Band, a more comtemporary Christian band with drums, electric and acoustic guitar, keyboard and vocalists, as well as a traditional band comprised of woodwind and brass instruments. Children can also use their gift of drama to participate in our annual play. Rhema students have the opportunity to serve God through various projects and field trips designed to help others.

Rhema Christian School provides an education with biblical principals. My 4 children have and are being taught how to read, write, add, about Science, History, how to speak Spanish, using current technologies, make music with instruments, and their voice, create art, compete thru Battle of the Books, be leaders while mentoring others, how to pray, praise God, and how to love others the way God loves us and they have an opportunity to compete thru Soccer, Basketball, Volleyball, and Cheerleading. They are taught that God has a plan for their lives and that we are to be the best we can with what He's given us, helping others when we can. The small classes allow teachers to know the students. Parents are welcomed and encouraged to volunteer at the school or help from home. Rhema has Christmas and Spring concerts and field trips. My oldest graduated from Rhema in 2011 and is very well prepared, now in the 11th grade. Since the school year began, my 7th grader went on a Spiritual Retreat, my 3rd grader went on a Science field trip and my Kindergartner visited a pumpkin patch with her class. Nothing tops their increased faith while attending school. I can't imagine them anywhere else.

We were very disappointed with Rhema. Academically, it is on par with all of the nearby public schools, but if you are looking for a Christian environment, where your children will be nurtured and taught Biblical values, keep looking. There is a lot of ongoing bullying behavior that, although brought to the administration's attention, is not addressed. My children only attended for a short time, but they were introduced to all sorts of bad language and inappropriate behavior by other students there. Behavioral issues are not addressed, even when brought to the administration's attention by parents. The administration does not seem to have the leadership skills required to effectively lead the staff and children. Although there are mandatory volunteer hours required, the office staff seem to only want parents there when they absolutely have to be. In the short time we were there, we saw a lot of staff and student turnover, which is very indicative of the environment there. We have learned a valuable lesson from Rhema: weekly chapel and a semi-Christian curriculum does not a Christian school make.

After attending Rhema for her preschool-8th grade years, my daughter is now in the top 1% of her public high school class, and has taken every honors course that is available to her.. In my opinion, her preparation at Rhema has paced her ahead of others in her age group, and paved the way for her success in high school and life!

I found Rhema Christian School to be less than satisfactory. This school is incredibly small and does not have the technological resources to help students progress in a developing world. Initially the staff seems to be well educated, but there are so few resources that students miss out on what a public school can provide. Also, with an aging staff, I found that students aren't receiving new, exciting, and thought provoking instruction. I understand that Christian values are what some families look for in their child's education, but I cannot justify sacrificing academic opportunities to receive instruction from this school. I know that the intentions from the staff are good at heart, but the professionalism and academic "know-how" are lacking. With the education area surrounding Rhema, I would strongly consider sending your child elsewhere and providing a strong Christian education at home and through your own church.

because they are really interested in the Students and the fact that they are a Christian School means that they are upholding Biblical Foundations which we so sorely need today.

I would rate RCS as a very good school overall and one that I would recommend highly to Christian parents. My wife and I have been very pleased with the RCS experience our three sons have had. Our two younger sons are still at RCS, while our oldest is a junior in the public school system. He is doing exceptionably, well as most RCS graduates do. RCS academic programs are of high quality as are Fine Arts and music(band and chorus). Athletics, especially basketball and soccer, gets high priority.Historically, parental involvement has been very good in short term commitments, not as good in long term commitments. However,this seems to be changing as the Board now has 12 very commited members,each with specific responsibilities.Rhema Christian School is a very good school. However,just as we Christians are, RCS is and always will be a work in progress. S.Schroeder

I've had two children at Rhema. This school has an excellent academic focus coupled with an equal focus on Christ, thus, it is not a school for those families that trivialize or minimize the role of Christ outside of the classroom environment. The academic program will ensure your children are more than well prepared for high school. Parental involvement and accountability is expected, and feedback on the educational progress of your child is proactive and immediate. Children are challenged to exceed their perceived limitations, while being fully supported by a caring faculty and highly qualified teachers. Classroom materials often include content only found at higher grade levels in non-private schools, but is integrated in such ways that the children can master the subject. My first child transferred from another Christian school and the differences were substantial in all areas. If you're committed to Christian education this is your school! Proverbs 22:6

God has blessed each child with specific gifts in learning. For some it might be the ability to learning through words, for others... through picture, for others... through music. In fact, there are at least 7 different types of learning. Rhema is excellent at teaching all the different types of learning. This way, each child will be able to develop their gift of learning, and have the academics taught in a way that will impact them the greatest. The result is an unbelievable learning experience for your child. Is it tough? Absolutely! Is it fun? You bet! But what a great mix.. to enable your child to have fun while at the same time learning at an incredible rate. Parent involovement is very high. There are numerous opportunities to participate and enhance your child's eduaction.

Rhema has been a tremendous blessing for my children. The God-centered curriculum is both academically rigorous and engaging for the students. The entire staff is committed to teaching in a Christian environment. They are not only well qualified, but extremely passionate about teaching. Being a member of RCS is truly like joining a family. We have formed lasting friendships within the Rhema family.

Yes hello I'm not a parent, I was actually a student for 9 years I would first like to say that the elementary school is outstanding they do a fantastic job. I would like to add one thing though if your child has ADD or ADHD I wouldn't recomend Rhema i would go with Eden Christian Acedemy and actually I really enjoy great enviroment and the best thing is they don't single me out for having ADHD well as parents its your choice. My opinion for Rhema is that the elementary and early education are amazing especially Kindergarten but its all up to the parents Junior High just wasn't a good enviroment for a boy with ADHD

Rhema is a great school. They are truly above the rest when it comes to academics. The staff is there because that is where they want to be. It is nice to be involved with a school that really cares and the school is all about parent involvement which brings back family values.
