  • Riverside Christian Academy began in 1996 with a dream to provide students with an exceptional education in a nurturing Christian environment.
  • At Riverside Christian Academy, our faculty and staff not only strive to provide students the best education possible, but also a Christian perspective on the world around them.
  • Christian principles are the foundation for every aspect of our program at RCA. Our mission is to enrich the whole child--mind, body, and soul.
  • RCA's board of directors and administration understand that the decision to seek Christian education for your child is a decision that comes with a sacrifice; therefore, they are committed to keeping RCA's tuition among the lowest of any comparable school in the Southeast.
  • The cost of Christian education is never an insignificant one; however, many families choose to send their children to RCA each year because they see the difference.
  • Riverside Christian Academy shall provide a non-denominational, Christ-centered educational experience, focusing on academic excellence through values based teaching.
  • Riverside Christian Academy purposes to enrich the whole person-mind, body, and soul.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
