Is Redemption Point Christian Academy (RPCA) a homeschool or a private school? We are a Category IV Church-related umbrella school. We will have classes Monday - Thursday at RPCA campus with teachers, administration, and students in-person. On Fridays, students will have an asynchronous (at home) learning day.

 

What time does it end and start? The 2023-2024 school year start time is 8:30am (drop-off begins at 8:10am) and end time is 3:00pm (pick-up ends at 3:15pm). Every Wednesday afternoon will be Chapel Service for all students. Families welcome and encouraged to join!

 

Is childcare available? Before and after school care will be available, as well as Friday care as needed for an addition fee. Beforecare begins at 7:30am and Aftercare ends at 4:30pm.

 

Will services for students with special needs be available? Special Services range from the provision of speech and language services in the child's home zoned school to comprehensive special educational services in a school-based or center-based setting.

 

Will lunch be provided? Students will bring their own water bottles, lunches, and snacks to school with them. At this time, RPCA does not provide breakfast or lunch unless otherwise told ahead of time for "special days" or for ordering takeout. My Hot Lunchbox® is a program in consideration for use in the 2024-2025 school year for Thursday meals.

Khaki or navy shorts, pants, skirts, jeans (without holes or rips), approximately 3 inches above the knee or longer. Heely® or other rolling shoes are not permitted, most other footwear is allowed.
