"Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it."
Proverbs 22:6

Welcome to RCCA

Welcome to Ross County Christian Academy! Also known as RCCA, our school was founded in 2007 through the work of two retired school administrators, Jake Grooms and Mike MacCarter. The initial vision was to have a school with the Christian faith integrated into all aspects of the education and to be an option for families in Ross County. This continues to be the main focus of the school as reflected in the school’s mission statement: “The mission of Ross County Christian Academy is to provide an excellent educational program for each child in a creative, challenging, and Christ-centered environment.”

While the school is not affiliated with any one church, the school has the endorsement of 22 Ross County churches. RCCA is the only nondenominational Christian school in Ross County. When the doors opened in September 2007, 23 students were enrolled. That number has seen steady growth to over 370 students in our 13 years of operation. The school is fully chartered, Pre-school through 12th grade, by the Ohio Department of Education. The school currently serves children ages Preschool (3 and 4 year olds) through High School, 12th grade. Some Special Education services are now available. For financial assistance for tuition or special education, please call the school for more information at 740-772-4532.
