Teachers at RCA are not only committed to each student's education, but also each student's character and discipleship. All 3 of my children have attended RCA from kindergarten. They make good grades because they have developed a love for learning. More important than memorizing Scripture, they understand it and know how to apply it to their daily lives (and they are all younger than 10 years). My children feel confident sharing what they know about Jesus and Scripture with others. I love RCA and what they are helping us do for my children!

This school is top notch in every way. All grades have teachers with a BS or Master's degree (even the aides have degrees). They are caring and the environment fosters learning that is fun. All grades have art, Spanish, PE, etc. I can't say enough about how great this school is!

We've attended this school for 3 years now and I taught there for two. We love the teachers. It is small and slowly growing. We hope to see it grow a little faster. The education is outstanding. There really is no athletics at this point but they are looking into the possibilities.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
