RHCA has been a blessing for 5 years and has far exceeded my expectations. During the COVID-19 shutdown, the school and teachers did an amazing job providing an organized, high-level remote learning experience. The skillful academic programs, low student teacher ratios and devoted faculty have brought about remarkable change in my children`s level of academic interests, biblical worldview, and personal growth. My favorite is their love for Jesus!! With the dedication from the faculty, school board and parents, this school is growing. I look forward to all of the new and exciting things God will provide for RHCA.

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!
