Welcome to Richmond Academy! I would like to take this opportunity to answer some of your questions about our school. First, I would like to answer this question: Is there a need for a Christian school in our community? At first glance, the answer to this question seems to be yes. After all, would it not be wonderful if there were a Christian school in every neighborhood? I agree that would be a wonderful sight. However, the question takes more than that into consideration.

The purpose of a Christian school is to minister to children and their families. Naturally, we first think of the lives of the students who attend the school and we consider their academic growth. Though they will certainly grow academically, a successful Christian school will also affect the lives of students socially, as well as spiritually. Three things will take place. The students will learn those academic skills necessary for life-long success. They will learn how to relate to their peers, their teachers, and others they will encounter throughout their lives. They will grow in their relationship with the Lord. All in all, a successful Christian school will provide the student with the tools to fulfill the summary of the Law, as given to us by Christ - �Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.� (Matthew 22:7-40)

Not only will the Christian school be instrumental in changing the lives of its students, the families of these students will also be ministered to. Parents will see their children mature in the ways mentioned above, they will experience the joy of knowing their children are in a decent and caring environment, and they will have the security of knowing that what their children are taught at school is consistent with what they are being taught at home.

Finally, the Christian school will have a direct impact on its community and the world at large. Students graduating from a well-operated Christian school are expected to graduate with a biblical worldview, leadership skills, strong Christian morals and principles, and a zeal to spread the message of Christ.

I have only addressed one question, but located to the left of this page are several buttons that lead to more in-depth understanding of who we are and what we stand for. Please feel free to browse around and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. My email is .

God bless,

P.S. Our vision is that God would make every provision for every family desiring a private Christian education, and that God would provide to home school families academic assistance. Richmond Academy is not affiliated with any church, but is independent and community supported.
