Round Grove Christian Academy

Round Grove Christian Academy was started in 1998 after much prayer and discussion.
The school started with just four preschoolers and began to grow each year. After 19 years, it is evident to see the Lord's hand upon our school in so many areas. We teach students from pre-K through the 12th grade now, with an average of 100+ students each year. We have seen the Lord bless us with a sports program and a wonderful gymnasium. We have been able to add Dual-Credit courses for our High School Juniors and Seniors which helps them prepare for college.
We are so blessed to have both a Staff and a School Board that diligently seeks the Lord as we teach the children that God has entrusted to our care.

School Reviews

I am a teacher at a local school district. I have 10 years of expeience. Though I love and appreciate the district for which I work, I send my child to Round Grove Christian Academy. At RGCA, my child is valued as an individual and loved by a staff that keeps Jesus at the center of all learning. My child is not viewed as a number or a test score, rather an child with strengths and weakness. I am so thankful for the ministry of RGCA. The teachers are "top-notch"!
