RCA believes in Booker T. Washington's idea of educating the Hand, Head, and Heart. Redemption Christian Academy's objective is to provide an environment conducive to learning. Our mission is to develop excellence by transforming our students SPIRITUALLY, ACADEMICALLY, and ATHLETICALLY. An emphasis is placed on TRUTH, CHRISTIAN CHARACTER, COMMITMENT, and BENEVOLENCE while teaching students to be problem solvers and standard-bearers in their communities.
Hand- Hard work and manual labor not only produce skills that can be used for a lifetime, but they also teach us discipline and responsibility.
Head- Education is one of the most important resources of which we do not take full advantage. We must also realize that education does not end in the classroom, but it is an ongoing process that is developed and cultivated beyond the classroom walls.
Heart- "Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life." (KJV) "Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it." (NIV) - Proverbs 4:23 - Booker T. Washington
Every student should view their education as an investment! RCA invests into each student, and each student should, in return, invest into RCA. Every student's degree of investment is measured by the effort and commitment they show while attending Redemption Christian Academy. As a result, the education of the hand, head, and heart that begins in the classroom also continues into RCA's work study/career development program. Since its inception, Redemption Christian Academy has placed an emphasis on quality education, hard work, and external and internal motivation. RCA is committed to transforming students' lives through character development and diligence. Attending RCA is an experience that consists of spiritual, educational, and athletic challenges. With the help of our dedicated staff, hard work, and family support, every student has the opportunity to succeed. We want to help produce future leaders that will not only impact their families and communities, but also the world!
