River City Believers Academy is “a school for real life”! We exist to partner with parents to help students find the real life they were created for.
Jesus said, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10) Preparing students for real life is a commitment to a Bible-based college prep curriculum that equips students to serve and lead in today’s world.
Our school does not exist to isolate students from the world but to help prepare them to be world changers!
