Elementary School • Preschool – 6th grade
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.
