Our Focus

Christian Centered

In Christian education, the Bible is discussed in Bible class and chapel—but how does it apply to other academic subjects? We shape each subject according to the lens of Scripture. Each discipline takes on new meaning when we apply the themes of Creation, Fall, and Redemption.

Academic Excellence

Ridgecrest Christian Academy educational materials are not just biblically faithful—they are also academically sound. Our materials use hands-on-learning, creative problem solving, and other research-proven instructional strategies to motivate students to take an active role in learning and to master age-appropriate material. 

Loving Community

Our faculty is passionate about our mission and love for children. We seek to develop the whole child and come alongside every family, partnering with parents in order to help their student thrive in their spiritual and academic journey.

Average Class Size

What our community says about us.

Our daughter has been at RCA for two years now for both Kindergarten and First Grade, and is enrolled for Second Grade this upcoming year. We love how she looks forward to going to school each morning. The teachers and staff go out of their way to create a welcoming environment, and we love the individualized attention that smaller classroom sizes create as well. It is so comforting to know that she is receiving a quality education in a caring, Christian environment!

Ridgecrest Christian Academy is a personal testimony of God’s faithfulness to our family.  We wanted not only a Christian education for our children but an environment where every child would be loved and recognized as a unique gift from God. My oldest absolutely adores her school and my youngest has flourished in Ridgecrest’s ELC. This was truly an answered prayer for us. Dothan is blessed with an affordable Christian school who teaches God’s word. We could not be more pleased with the experiences and memories made.

Sending both our kids to RCA has been very rewarding. My kids have learned so much since starting RCA because of the dedicated teachers at the school. We love that the teachers keep parents involved in their child’s education and are very open to any parent concerns. We also like that the smaller class sizes allow extra focus on what the individual student needs. The curriculum challenges their minds while growing their faith as well. RCA provides a great education and also a safe and family-oriented environment. We are blessed and thankful to be part of the RCA family.

My husband and I decided this year that we wanted to enroll our daughter in a Christian school after being homeschooled for kindergarten. We knew we wanted her to grow up in a Christian environment while still receiving an excellent education. As we began looking around Dothan we came across Ridgecrest Academy and instantly fell in love. After touring the campus it only confirmed our decision that this was definitely the place for us. The teachers and staff are amazing. Our daughter loves it here and can’t wait to go to school everyday! We are so proud to be a part of Ridgecrest Christian Academy
