River City Believers Academy Reviews

27 reviews

RCBA is a very conservative school under the administration of a small group of individuals selected by the church, River City Community Church. I personally disliked the way administration handled certain situations. Several students that have come and gone can agree that a certain Priscilla Torres acted unfairly out of her own selfish feelings and desires. To make a ling story short, going to this school would require you to expose your own personal life to the authorities upon demand or request.

RCBA provides a quality Christian education in a loving environment. The environment feels like family. The students are kind and the teachers are passionate about the school. Our son is thriving at RCBA.
There are plenty of activities for the students. There is good diversity among the student body. It provides excellent continuity as students can attend from PK3 through 12th grade. It is ASCI accredited. The facilities are new and shared in part with the church, which is a new building. There are varsity sports. The children go on field trips. The teachers are certified. The children may bring their lunch or purchase a variety of hot lunches.
The address is incorrect; they've moved from Jones Maltsberger to a huge and beautiful campus in Selma behind Retama Park.
RCBA is a great environment. The academics are rigorous and top notch. The faculty and staff are passionate about their mission to provide a Christ-centered education. The students are loving, welcoming to new children, and helpful to one another. Many of the teachers attend River City Community Church, so if you can get to know them if you attend church. There is a good tuition discount for church members.
