Why Chose RCS? Parent Testimonials
"We enrolled our daughter at RCS in kindergarten; she is now in 9 th grade. We love that she is in a safe learning environment and can be the person that God created her to be. She is encouraged and nurtured by Godly leaders. The teachers help lay a spiritual foundation for each child, helping to build their faith in God. The academic program is wonderful and is definitely helping to prepare the students for college. The junior high and high school sports programs are wonderful too! Enrolling our daughter at RCS is one of the best decisions our family has ever made. " -The Mayo Family
"Our family has benefited from the athletic programs at RCS. While the programs are competitive, they also offer an inclusiveness that develops players in their sport skills as well as in their character as a child of God. The coaches have been encouraging to both players and parents. We appreciate the opportunity for our kids to be challenged in this type of athletic environment!" -Grace Freeman
"The way that I see Christ impacting my kids at RCS is through the staff and through repeated exposure to the word of God and its concepts. Since the Bible is a subject and discussed at every grade level, including Pre-K, it has been integrated into the fabric of the curriculum. While there is a specified time for Bible, it isn't solely discussed at this time. Teachers use the concepts presented in the Bible throughout the day whether disciplining, discussing science and the intricacies of creation, or through personal reflection during writing assignments. This has taught my older children to think with a spiritual mindset at all times, and my younger children to learn and know that the Bible is living, true, and applicable to their lives. I absolutely believe that Rosehill played a pivotal role in my oldest daughter's salvation story and eventual baptism this past summer. Instead of going to church on Sundays and hoping those concepts stick with them through the week, we are confident that sending our kids to RCS allows them to take what they learn at church and deepen their understanding. They then can apply it in everyday situations with confidence, knowing that the staff is there to walk alongside them on their journey and their friends as well. We are thankful for the spiritual direction RCS provides for our children and for us. That is the most important part of their education. " - Jennifer Griffith
