Our Middle School Campus is located at 10200 No.5 Road, which used to be our high school campus since 1997. With major improvements and upgrades having taken place over the summer of 2008, it is now home to more than 200 students from grades 6-8! RCS is the first and only school that provides a middle school program in the City of Richmond. We are mindful that more growth occurs during these years than at any other time of life.
The adult personality is formed during the middle level years. This includes basic self-concept, beliefs, values and attitudes – the important components of one’s character.
A separate campus provides a unique opportunity in allowing students to develop a sense of belonging, an important focus for this age group.
Richmond Christian School is an independent school, from Preschool to Grade 12. We are a Christ-centred community where we invite parents to join us in providing our students with an environment where they may grow academically, aesthetically, emotionally, physically, socially and spiritually. We prepare our students for life-long learning in service to our Saviour. The curriculum at RCS is Christ-centred, rooted in the Bible with the purpose to provide a wide variety of experiences for growth. Our teachers are professionally certified and followers of Christ who display love and care for the students. Every student is recognized as a unique individual with varied abilities and is encouraged to develop his/her God-given talents to the maximum potential to become leaders and servants in His world.
Eighteen years later in 1975, the Evangelical Education Society began the Seacliff Christian School. Through the struggles (often financial) which followed these humble beginnings the Lord provided dedicated and committed teachers and parents who sacrificed much to ensure that Christian Education would be a reality in both schools. 1n 1985, land was purchased on Woodwards Road and construction began on a modern facility. In the following years, both the Seacliff School and the Woodwards School became larger and more interdenominational with a temporary third campus built at No. 1 Road and Blundell.
By 1990, there was a clear indication of desire on the part of the two school communities to provide a quality Christ centred high school program for all students. In 1992, God opened the door for the two to become one and in June the unified Richmond Christian School was a reality. Today, in 2009, over 850 students in preschool to grade 12 are educated on three campuses. Richmond Christian School is bearing, as it has throughout the year, the fruit of this faithful trust in the Lord's rich promises.
