This school is packed with warmth and security for our kids. Its Christ- centered approach and genuine care for kids provides such hope in an ever increasing anxiety ridden world. Every child should get to experience education in this capacity. Small student centered classrooms are exactly how kids grow and excel. With the new head of school, we feel RCA is in great hands. Thank you Collierville for giving us one of your best! RCA is the place to Be!!

Our family has been a long-time patron of RCA. As a result of their experience at RCA, our children have succeeded and excelled at the next academic level (both public and private universities) and in life. We are confident in the investments we`ve made in our children`s education and development at RCA.

Our son has been attending RCA for 4 years and what a blessing the school has been for our family. Being a dyslexic learner has it's own challenges, but the teachers have wrapped their arms around him and helped him cross over some major milestones. The athletic program has been a great area of achievement for him as well. The smaller school setting allows for more one-on-one teacher time and that is something that every child benefits from. We are so thankful to be a part of RCA. Go Wolves!

Come check out our sweet school!

We have 2 daughter currently attending RCA. In the 5 years they have been at Rossville Christian Academy, we have seen their confidence grow in their faith, academics, athletics, and life in general. They are members of several clubs and athletic teams. Their standardized test scores have increased each year. We love RCA, and would recommend that you visit!

I have two children who went to RCA from Kindergarten through 12th grade. The teachers are amazing. They care about each student's success. There is a feeling of family. I always knew that my children were receiving the best Christian education possible. After graduation, both have done well in the pursuit of their careers.

Our family has been a part of the Rossville Christian Academy family for two years now and we couldn't be happier. Our 4 kids have been treated like family since day one and we couldn't be happier for them. If you are looking for a smaller school setting that offers a Christ centered education then please come for a visit. Big things are happening at RCA and we welcome you with open arms.
