RCA’s History

Ridge Christian Academy was established in 1991 as an educational ministry of Ridge Baptist Church. The day school and after school program provided an opportunity for the church to reach out into the community in a new light. By having this ministry it allowed the church to help develop a Christ-like character in the lives of children that attended the school as well as the church. Believing God’s Word that “I know the plans I have for you,” Ridge believed that children should be provided an opportunity to have a better understanding of God’s Word and thereby develop a personal relationship with Christ.
