We have attended RHCA for 4 years and have been blessed with a wonderful experience. Our child has grown academically, spiritually, and personally, and we love the individualized attention given to each child. The classical education provides a foundation that allows the students to receive an integrated education and develop a love for learning, which we have seen reflected in our daughter. Excellent school!

And it will continue to do so indefinitely until we have vaccines to protect us. With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
If you are thinking about private school for your child in the aftermath of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, you should exercise even more due diligence than you usually would. More here.
