The mission of Riverside Christian Academy is to provide quality Christian education and an environment that will impact each student emotionally, spiritually, and physically.
Riverside Christian Academy is not your traditional classroom school. We are an Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) school. Our philosophy dictates that our educational ministry be child-centered rather than program or institution-centered. ACE has done considerable research on the topic of how children learn, and the results, along with other educational surveys, indicate the following:
- Children learn at different rates
- Children learn information differently at different developmental levels
- Children best learn through repetition followed by review
- Children vary in their abilities to learn through visual, auditory, and kinesthetic stimuli
It is a part of the RCA purpose to promote good study habits, to encourage individual research and creative thinking, and to interpret world affairs in the light of God’s revelations – all while using the best integrated curriculum available. We stand committed to partner with families in giving their children all the love, encouragement, and training necessary to help each one achieve their highest potential.

“We have been a part of the GO Kids family for almost 6 years. We have been blessed by the love and care shown to all 3 of our kids. Riverside Christian Academy has been awesome! I love that the curriculum is individualized and pushes our child beyond his potential. Christian values and concepts that we are teaching at home are reiterated at school! The teachers are amazing and love our kids!”Stephanie Barnhart
“Since my son has attended Riverside Christian Academy, he has improved in ALL subjects. He has struggled yearly in the public school system. We had been praying about what the best place for him would be, and we have FOUND IT! The individualized curriculum is perfect for him. His grades are great. He has achieved either an A or B Honor Roll each 9 weeks. We are so pleased with Riverside Christian Academy. God has answered our prayers.”Amber Hendrickson
“A great individualized education experience for my son. The staff and educators deeply care for the kids and are well supported and resourced. My son was reading midway through kindergarten and had read 86 books by the end of that school year. He loves to go to school and doesn’t complain or fight about going in the morning, which speaks a lot to the positive experience he is having! He is very excited to start another year here!”Sara Hall
