13 Parent Reviews for Round Rock Christian Academy
My daughter is going into her second year at RRCA. She started PreK last year, and I was astonished to see such a rapid growth in her. By mid-year she already began to read and could do simple math problems. It's easy to see the difference between my child's development and my friends children (who
... Read more attend public schools) by the end of the school year. Cost is very affordable and the staff and teachers are easy to talk to and communication is always open. If i could change one thing it would be the lunches provided and lunch time allowed for such young children (too short). Lunch doesn't offer very healthy food, but this is always fixable with a lunch taken. Read less

Academically the school is very good with competent Christian teachers who are concerned with student success. But, if you are looking for common Christian goals in parenting with other families you will find this lacking. This is not an important goal for RRCA or their interview process would be more
... Read more discerning. Half the families claim church membership but rarely attend. A lot do not attend at all. Many here are trying to avoid the public schools and have no interest in a walk with Christ. Chapels are weak and entertainment based. The elementary one is like a weekly VBS Pep Rally without any substantial guidance in the Word and no time for letting children peacefully reflect or think. Secondary chapel speakers tend to speak shallow moralistic messages and are from the church that rents the school its facilities. If your goal is just to achieve a quality education then Round Rock Christian Academy will meet your expectations. If your goal is a quality education partnering with dedicated Christian families to promote same values to your children then you will not be happy at this school. Read less

I have family members that have attended Round Rock Christian Academy since kindergarten and know first-hand, the immense benefits of a private education at RRCA. The kids are at learning levels well above that of public schools and their teachers have all been outstanding. The classes are kept to
... Read more a size that enables them to manage everything effectively. There is also a brilliant parent-teacher communication system set up, and utilized daily. Whether it is a learning challenge, conduct, homework or discipline, the problems are addressed immediately and parents partner with the school to achieve solutions for each specific child. In addition to general knowledge, I would say that RRCA also teaches and holds the students to high standards of ethical and moral principles. These codes of integrity can easily be recognized throughout the management, faculty and staff. And last but not least, in addition to being smart and well mannered, the kids are very happy and well adjusted. In no way would I ever diminish the noble parenting job that my sister and her husband are doing, but when you have a school like this backing you up the children can do nothing but benefit.

So thankful for Round Rock Christian Academy and very happy to give a great review. My children have benefitted greatly from the personal attention by their teachers year after year. The teachers are very committed to spiritual and education growth of the students and are eager to partner with parents.

We have been involved with RRCA since 1995. Both of my children graduated from RRCA and got into great colleges. Our experience there was amazing from start to finish. We loved the special attention that the teachers gave to our children. The spiritual emphasis was consistent and much appreciated. The
... Read more tuition was reasonable (look at the prices of other private schools in the area!). The administrative staff maintains an open-door policy. Parents are always welcome. Everything from the hot lunch program to the chapel programs are handled with excellence. We've made life long friends with parents, students and teachers who were part of this "village" that helped raise our children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. I have nothing but praise for a place that I've had a 17 year relationship with. They have the credibility of 36 years of being a leader in Christian education in the central Texas area. Read less

We love RRCA! Our kids have been there for years and we can't say enough good things. They have really stepped up their game in the last year with an overhauled school board, better advertising, improved fundraising, and some great new teachers. All of these things will improve the great education

I love this school! I have three children (2 have attended since Pre-K) and two have already graduated taking 18 plus credits to college. My oldest graduated from college in 3 1/2 years with a double major. I know that they are not only prepared for college but loved along the way. It is wonderful

Wow, all these great comments make me feel like our experience is in the twilight zone. We have one student being harrassed by other students on more than one occassion. We have another student being harrassed by a teacher to the point that my child hates to go to school everyday. There is another
... Read more teacher that screams at her students and pounds on her podium regularly. There is another teacher that asks the students on more than one occassion are they afraid of her. We have an administration with an outdated bullying policy and some outdated ideas on what does and does not constituted harrassing behavior. There is an RRCA Foundation that is constantly sending out emails begging for more money for the school, to the tune of a little over $800 for each student. Unless there are some MAJOR changes to teachers and policies, we are not planning on returning next year. Read less
