MESSAGE FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT
Welcome to Riverside Christian Academy, a member of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). It is a great privilege to join with the church and with your family to create an environment where, working together, we can nurture today’s children and develop tomorrow’s Kingdom leaders. Author and educator, Glen Schultz, has defined “kingdom education” as “a life-long, Bible-based, Christ-centered process of leading a child to Christ, building a child up in Christ, and equipping a child to serve Christ!” (Kingdom Education, 1998, p.29). At RCA, we are committed to academic excellence; but we further desire to provide the distinctive where every student may know Jesus Christ as Savior, be continually transformed into the image of Christ, and be fully equipped to serve Christ in everyday life. Matthew 6:33 says, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.” If we seek to put God first in our children’s lives, every single thing our children need to fulfill His perfect plan (not our plan – but God’s plan) for their lives will be given unto them. This is God’s promise!
I look forward to answering your questions and working with your family to nurture and develop tomorrow’s Kingdom leaders.
In His Service,
Lin Wheeler, Ed.D
