RCA Board Approves Purchase and Renovation of Additional Facilities as School Grows


The Rhea County Academy board has recently approved the purchase of the former Rhea County Department of Education building and property to accommodate the continued growth of the school.  The purchased property is directly across the street from the RCA campus and will provide much needed space for a separate Junior High and High School campus. 

While the property purchased is a former school campus, much renovation and updating needs to be done before the new property can be put into use as a school.  While the school has received many donations to assist in this project, a $50,000 fundraising campaign is being launched to provide the funds to complete the necessary renovations.  It is the school’s goal to raise the necessary funds in time to complete the renovations so the fall semester can begin in the new campus.

Once renovation is completed, this campus will provide expanded classroom space for the Junior High and High School programs while simultaneously allowing the elementary school to grow in the current facilities.  Currently, there are few designated-purpose classrooms due to space limitations, but upon move-in on the new Junior High and High School camps all age groups will be able to benefit by having designated-purpose classrooms for Art, Music, etc.

Donations for this project are being accepted on-line or in the form of checks or cash.

Floorplans for the Junior High and High School spaces are shown below:

  • RCA brings to my mind thoughts of grace, love and family. My family has been blessed to meet and know other families that attended before our kids enrolled. By His grace, we learned of the school and the wonderful environment it was. The love that is poured out for the kids, and by the kids, is amazing. Being a part of RCA is truly like being a part of a family. I feel that my child is treated not just as a student, but a part of a family, part of the Body of Christ. Knowing the love, care and instruction that he receives is a true blessing. — RCA Parent Read more
