RCCA is the only Christian, non-denominational, teacher-led school in the Ross County area. Our goal is to grow children in mind, body, and spirit. We utilize the best of traditional teaching styles combined with flexible groupings and multi-age instruction. We emphasize the development of Christian character and love for America, in a strong academic curriculum.

RCCA has classes for children from pre-school through 12th grade, for the 2019-20 school year. Open enrollment begins the first of March and continues until the classes are full. Class size is limited.

All employees, teaching, non-teaching, and substitutes must pass both BCI and FBI Background Checks. Volunteers who interact with students on a regular basis are also subject to these background checks. Enrollment as of Sept. 1, 2018 is 371.
