We believe RCS can make the best impact when we are in our proper place: 3rd place. God instituted the family and the church as the two primary institutions in the life of a child. Both the family and the church are vitally important in the upbringing of a child.
What sets us apart as a school is the fact that we are intentionally designed to come alongside parents and echo what students are learning in church as they learn to make sense of their world from the truth of God`s Word. We do not set out to be a replacement for a family or an alternative to church. We believe we are most successful when we are intentional about supporting and lifting up the role of the family and the church in a child`s life.
We are a school for families who have parents actively engaged in their student's life and the family is involved in church together.
For us, 3rd Place is more than a catchy idea. It is the framework from which we attempt to make all of our decisions. We want to position ourselves to lift up parents of our students and not undermine them. We want to encourage and equip parents through new resources and special events.
Ridgeview is made up of families from a large number of churches in our area. We do not see these churches as competitors, but rather as partners in the vital ministry of the gospel. Doctrinal integrity is very important to us and is safeguarded by the leadership of Ridgeview Baptist Church. Sensitivity is given to various personal convictions.

School Notes

  • Ridgeview Christian School is a ministry of Ridgeview Baptist Church. Its purpose is to provide children with a traditional, Christ-centered, quality education in a conventional class setting. The school was founded on and remains steadfast to the same Biblical principles upon which the New Testament Church was founded. We believe the Bible to be the authoritative Word of God. All programs at Ridgeview both curricular and extra-curricular, are based on principles set forth in God's Word. As Christians, it is our responsibility to train our children how to live a life that would bring honor to Christ. One of our goals at Ridgeview is to see that each child has accepted Christ as their personal Savior and to help them make a commitment to lead a life that would be pleasing to Him. The Bible says: "Train up a child in the way he should go." It is our goal to assist parents in the training of their children. The home, like the church, is one of the two institutions ordained by God to carry out His plan in a Christian's life. The Christian school is a reinforcement of the Christian home. We are not attempting to replace the home, but to act as a means of strengthening the Christian values of morality, discipline and behavior that should be part of the Christian home. Therefore, it is important that the school and parents work together as a team in a spirit of cooperation that will benefit the children involved. Our prayer is that we can help you train your children in a way that would be pleasing to God and work together toward their well-rounded education.

I could not be happier with this school. Anyone who tells you this school is snobby/ and or preppy is very wrong. I have only attended this school for 2 years and I feel like I have always gone here... I hope you heavily consider this school. This school teaches great Christian values, which is what America needs.
