School Notes

Riverland Christian Academy is committed to setting children on a path to success in their spiritual and educational lives. Our goal is to prepare children for the world today and give them the academic and spiritual tools necessary to achieve their God-given potential.

We are able to achieve this based on the following Five Basic Laws of Learning:
  • A child must be at a level where he can perform.
  • They must have reasonable goals.
  • Their learning must be controlled, and the student must be motivated.
  • Their learning must be measurable.
  • Their learning must be rewarded.

Based on these principles, the combination of the A.C.E. and ABeka curriculums used at Riverland assures parents of:
  • A solid, mastery-based, back-to-basics education for their child.
  • A course of study diagnostically individualized to meet a student's specific learning needs and capabilities.
  • A Bible program incorporating Godly character building and wisdom principles.
