I am writing to commend your Faculty/Staff regarding the recent Senior Class Trip. This entire Senior committee worked and prayed very hard to make this a wonderful experience for these students and they did not fail. My son and I'm sure the others had a great time and were also enlightened and truly touched by some of the events. As any parent I'm always a little apprehensive to have my child travel without his parents but I have to say I was totally at peace with the selected chaperones. I want to thank the Teachers for taking such great care of my student on this trip. I would also like to thank other members of the committee for all their hard work. This is the Gregory family's last year at this school and I will have to say after twenty years I'm going to really miss it. For years my husband and I have felt so blessed to have Christian teachers for our children. My oldest son started in 1997 and we started my youngest son Aaron in 2004. While sometimes it was a sacrifice financially it was without a doubt worth it. My prayer is that this school will continue to offer a great Christian based education to the students in this community.

My daughter has attends 5th grade. The Teachers are very caring and enjoy what they do. My child has learned a lot from Rock Creek Christian Academy because she receives quality attention without classroom overflow. I highly recommend this school and my daughter will be graduating from this school as a Senior.
