“Choosing RCA for our son was the BEST decision we made! My husband and I, as well as our son, feel RCA is such a fun and stimulating school that makes learning fun and exciting. Our son has grown so much academically. The environment is always friendly and welcoming. The RCA staff truly cares for the well-being of each student.”

- Kasandra Moore, 4th-grade parent


“We cannot thank RCA enough for the change in our granddaughter. She started in kindergarten at RCA and had previously attended another school district for Pre-K. While attending the other school district, she was in fights with other students, and absolutely hated school! When she first started at RCA, she refused to get on the bus and her words were, “I hate school and they need to close it down!” After one week at RCA, she was helping other students get on the bus! She is now in the 4th grade and excelling with straight A’s and the Honor Roll! Praise for RCA! Thank you!”

- Kyma Drake, 4th-grade grandparent


“We love RCA because the teachers, aides, and staff take the time to know Ethan and what he needs and adjust accordingly; teaching the student instead of the class. The atmosphere is one you can feel when you walk in the door and see the love everyone there has for our kids!”

- Michele Drake, 2nd-grade parent


“My son, Camden Wayland, has attended school at RCA for the last 8 years. Having Camden transferred from our local public school to RCA has been the best decision that I have ever made for my son. Camden has been accommodated with academics as well as learning life skills in order to become as independent as possible. The staff and administration have been wonderful for the last 8 years and I'm thankful every day that Camden has been able to have such a great educational and social experience at RCA. Camden will miss all of the staff and students when he ventures off to high school in 2020! Thanks!”

- Cara DeMoss, 8th-grade parent


“We love RCA, because of the family atmosphere and the one on one attention that is given to each student. We switched our son here when he was in the second grade, he will be a seventh-grader next year, and he has thrived in this environment. We also have a daughter that started out here in kindergarten and her education has been awesome as well!”

- Belinda Freeman, 3rd and 6th-grade parent


“There are many reasons I choose RCA for my child. From the first time I walked in the door, I felt welcomed and listened to. My child was having difficulty learning and with the help of RCA staff, I can say my child is now making tons of progress. The teachers have not only been cheerleaders but also shown they love my child and if he is willing to work with them they will do anything to help him achieve his goals. He loves school now where before he hated it. I choose RCA because my child is happy and learning. They have some of the best teachers I have ever seen. I have no concern dropping him off each day knowing that his teacher Mrs. Freeman is caring for him as if he were her own. If you are looking for a place to send your child where you know they are learning and being loved I highly recommend Rural Community Academy.”

- Angie Kimmel, 2nd-grade parent


"There are so many wonderful things I could say about RCA. Our child has attended this school for six years now and I must say it was the best switch in our child’s educational path! Smaller classroom sizes, excellent staff and a strong sense of community are just a few things that RCA offers families in the area.”

- Kristen Ridgway, 5th-grade parent


“The environment at RCA took our daughter from literally failing to straight A’s in a few short weeks. Three years in and she’s still doing it!”

- Darin May, 4th-grade parent


"My kids love it and the teachers are great. Wouldn't want them to go to another school!"

- Ashley Lennings, 3rd and 4th-grade parent


"We love RCA! My daughter has learned so much from this great school! All the staff really cares about the children and it shows through the children's faces!"

- Katie Phillips, 1st-grade parent
