Russell Christian Academy

Our mission is to partner with parents in equipping students to embrace biblical truth, achieve their god given potential, and engage the culture for the cause of Christ.
A Christian school should be much more than a safe alternative to public school with a required Bible class and once-a-week chapel services.
Although possessing these characteristics, Russell Christian Academy exists for a much higher purpose.
Our school teaches absolute truth from a Biblical worldview across multiple curricular disciplines.
A school of almost four-hundred students, Russell Christian Academy believes parents are Biblically responsible for the education of their children and therefore are vital to the educational process.
