ABOUT RIDGE CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
At Ridge Christian Academy we proudly proclaim Jesus as we educate children to reach their God-given potential. Looking back over our beginning as a summer camp, I am humbled by the favor and blessings that have led us to this point. We believe that it takes parents, students, and staff working together to form that threefold chord that leads to success. Whether its academics, athletics or the arts, RCA students demonstrate strength of character as they shine for Jesus, and I am proud to have a small part in this amazing journey.
Ridge Christian Academy is a Christian Preschool and Elementary operated as a ministry of Ridge Assembly of God. Our programs offer a Christian philosophy of education and a Christian environment for your children’s growth. We utilize both BJU and ABEKA curricula to ensure a Christian education and to prepare children for accelerated academics. We are dedicated to the mental, physical and social development of children. We provide preschool thru seventh grade programs that challenge and encourage children to achieve their fullest potential. We recognize each child as a unique promise from God to each of his or her parents, and we pledge to always show God’s love by our words and deeds.
We are accredited by FLOCS, ILCS and COGNIA.
Ridge Christian Academy Mission is to educate children to realize their God – given potential of academic excellence, within a Christian framework. We strive to help children understand at an early age that their choices have consequences. In partnership with parents, we seek to develop Christian character in every child in a loving, nurturing environment.
Ridge Christian Academy, a ministry of Ridge Assembly of God, opened its doors in May 2002 with “Camp Can Do”. During this time, Preschool and school age children were combined.
In August 2002 the preschool opened with ages 2-5. God’s faithfulness has been apparent in providing personnel as well as property. During our first year we began our preschool with 13 children and ended the school year with 63 enrolled. In August 2005, Ridge Christian Academy officially opened the elementary school with Kindergarten and 1st grade.
