In the elementary years at RCA, young minds and hearts are nurtured as students are challenged in core subjects, gaining the foundational knowledge and skills necessary to set them on a course for academic, college, and career success. All curriculum is conveyed from a Biblical worldview, with standards adapted from ACT Aspire and the State of Tennessee. Teachers use hands-on learning methods with whole group, small group, and individual instruction to meet students’ needs, while providing opportunities for students to demonstrate their learning in a variety of ways. Encouraging fun and inspiring a love of learning underpin our elementary philosophy.
In addition to core subject areas, students engage in weekly enrichment classes in a variety of areas including STEM, Art, Music, Spanish, Library, & P.E. Also, to help nurture social and emotional growth, our School Counseling department provides students research-based, Biblical coaching in developing the skills needed for effective coping strategies, healthy self-identity, and positive peer relationships. You can learn more about our elementary programs & curriculum in our Admissions Magazine on pages 15-16.
Through the elementary grades, RCA desires to partner with parents to help shape children through their most formative years, building a strong foundation, both academically and spiritually.
