Upper School

At RLCA every aspect of our program is designed to help real students find real faith by achieving excellence in academics, leadership and service.

We provide our students with exceptional preparation by offering a rigorous college preparatory course of study and in depth personal development opportunities that empower each student to live the life God has called them to as they transition to college and career.

You can find information on our middle and high school academics below.

During the middle school years, it is normal for students to experience rapid growth intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. We support our middle school students in taking ownership of their own learning, building Christ-centered relationships and appreciating who they are in Christ. We understand the challenges of this age and help students to solidify their foundation in academics, establish steadfast values, and acquire discernment when making decisions. Academic programs, extracurricular activities, and athletics are properly in place throughout the middle school years to support our students holistically during this time of growth and transition.

Alongside a rigorous academic program taught by dedicated and passionate teachers, we offer elective choices that provide students with the opportunity to try something new. This allows them to discover fresh talents and cultivate creativity.

At Real Life Christian Academy, we are constantly working hard to establish and enhance our school culture through building a community while enriching the middle school experience for our students and families.

The high school years are a meaningful time of learning based on rigor, relevance, and relationships. RLCA provides a school culture where students are encouraged and supported as they grow into young men and women of faith in Jesus Christ. We foster excellence in academics, leadership and service, equipping students to live a purposeful life to the glory of God.

In emphasizing the importance of living out Biblical principles and upholding Christian values, we enable students to exhibit behaviors that contribute to a positive school. Our classroom teachers train our students in the development of 21st century learning skills in the areas of collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, innovation and problem solving.

With an understanding of the increasingly competitive global marketplace, our passionate and dedicated teachers direct efforts to educate and cultivate each student’s God given giftings and talents. Our academic course of study offers a range of options including honors level, dual enrollment (DE) and advanced placement (AP) courses. In addition to a rigorous academic program, students are able to participate in a wide range of elective courses, extracurricular activities, and athletics. These options provide opportunities for students to grow into their purpose and calling in Christ.

At Real Life Christian Academy, we are committed to building the high school experience with enriching traditions for our students and families. As we prepare them in a variety of ways to be successful and independent individuals, they will leave RLCA academically ready, ethically equipped, spiritually strong, and ready to take on the challenges of the world in order to make a difference.
