The Value of an RCA Education

In May 2015, we celebrated Rhea County Academy's second graduating class. This gives us the opportunity to brag on how well our students are being prepared for the future. The average ACT score for our high school students over the past 2 years is a 26. A 26 equates to an 83rd percentile ranking nationwide. Most of these high school students have been at RCA all or most of their educational careers. This is a testament to the outstanding work that our teachers do on a daily basis and to the quality of education we provide at RCA.

  • RCA brings to my mind thoughts of grace, love and family. My family has been blessed to meet and know other families that attended before our kids enrolled. By His grace, we learned of the school and the wonderful environment it was. The love that is poured out for the kids, and by the kids, is amazing. Being a part of RCA is truly like being a part of a family. I feel that my child is treated not just as a student, but a part of a family, part of the Body of Christ.
