When we look at a child, we strive to view him or her as a whole person, a boy or girl born with an innate desire to know and a curiosity to see the beauty of the world. We see minds hungry for ideas and hearts hungry for the opportunity to care. We recognize the need for them to serve others wisely with head, heart, and souls. It is our vision and privilege to cultivate an atmosphere best suited for children to thrive in all ways.
It is the mission of RMCA’s administration and faculty to provide what Charlotte Mason called a “living education,” where each child is exposed to a rich and rigorous curriculum in an atmosphere that is engaging and meaningful. Our primary concern pertains to the kind of student each child is becoming. With high expectations and supportive teachers who mentor and guide, the potential of our students is unlimited.
This view of the child as a responsible person who needs encouragement and nurturing leads to several key values that guide instruction and learning at RMCA, including the following:
RMCA believes the values above provide the fertile soil for lifelong growth of our students, our school, and our community.
