I am a student at riverside and I think it is a great school. It has a great education, and is a great christain school. I am happy that every morning we can go to chapel, and have a class specificly for God. It is a great private school for kids who don't like very big schools.

My children have been attending RCA for 3 years and they LOVE it! Will not go anywhere else. Great school with a Christian environment. No better feeling than your children reciting bible verses and singing praises to God, at home, after a long day at school. 100% recommend RCA! Go KNIGHTS!

I have had my two children at RCA for the past 6 years. I would not have my kids anywhere else. They are getting an excellent education in a great Christian atmosphere. RCA is a blessing to my family.

Riverside Christian Academy is a small, non-denominational school that recently received SACS and NCSA accreditation. In 2007 it was rated the best school in Lincoln County. Our family is very pleased with RCA. The teachers and staff are caring and competent. When you walk through the doors, there is a quiet and orderly hum of activity, reminiscent of typical school atmospheres when parents were young. Strolling through the halls and looking into the open classrooms, you will often find students of all ages engaged in hands-on activities, most of whom have smiling faces. The curriculum is challenging, and includes Bible studies (there is a substantial amount of homework which requires some parental assistance). Riverside stresses academic learning, but their philosophy also involves spiritual and physical development. There is time for recess and sports, including football, baseball and soccer. Students are required to wear school uniforms, but the requirements are not excessive.

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.
