Purpose

Our school is dedicated to seeing our students become more Christ-like. This involves the (1) edification of children in accordance to Ephesians 4:12, "For the perfecting (equipping) of the saints for the work of the ministry. . ." Therefore, attention will be given to spiritual growth and equipping children to live a life of obedience to biblical principles and a development of a spiritual and natural gifts of each child. This must begin with the (2) evangelization of those children who may not be saved. It is our desire to see each student accept Christ as the Savior and become effective witnesses for the cause of Christ and faithful in daily prayer and Bible study.

At RCA we also want our students to be intellectually-equipped to handle the challenges they will face in their future professional lives. Proverbs 9:9 says, "Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be yet wiser: teach a just man, and he will increase in learning." Our academics are designed to be challenging so our students will be stretched to achieve their maximum potential in their mental development. We expect our students to possess self-discipline in all areas of life, to respect the authority that God has placed in their lives, to love our great country, and to develop sound values that can be used for a lifetime. The Bible, though not the only textbook, is taught and its principles are applied in all aspects of learning.

We desire for each student to develop a heart for others and become community-focused in their outlook as it states in Philippians 2:4, which says, "Look not every man on his own things, but every man on the things of others." We want to help these students understand that we have all been created differently and each person has their own strengths and weaknesses. Our goal is to have our students committed to encouraging others in their strengths but also helping others improve their weaknesses, and enhancing their abilities to care and encourage others, and seeing beyond the differences knowing that "before God no one is better than they are, yet at the same time they are no better than anyone else."

Our students should be developing a broad base of skills in order to be well-rounded. Luke 2:52 says, "And Jesus increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man." We want each one to be ready for whatever area God calls them in for their future occupations and ministries. Therefore, attention will also be given to the mental, physical, and social growth of children. We want the young people attending Romeoville Christian Academy to take their academics seriously and be willing to improve themselves in a variety of fields in order to be well-rounded individuals for the glory of God.
