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.
