  • My children have been attending RCBA for 7 years. My purpose for private education is first and FOREMOST that they are able to worship God and be encouraged to learn and grow in a Christian setting. I can attest that the academics are not substandard- and I would encourage any parent to call and tour the school and see for themselves.

  • this school is one of the BEST shcools i have aended. i lived in florida then moved to texas w/ my famly, and my second school year in texas was believers academy. but this year we merged w/ river city community church, and we are now called: River City Believers Academy. the new head master, Dwam Sherman, is one no, THE funiest, funest, coolest, best principle i have had. he is always makin u laugh, he inter acts w/ the kids, and he is a great techer.
    u should go to BA because the teachers are great, the students are great, and the headmaster is the best!
    my dad helps out at BA w/ there sports he is the assistan couch, moving BA he found trucks and men, and the occasianal B-B-Q'(thanks Mr.Ssherman) she helps make them and setting up the tables, and he really puts his time in effort in the school.
    so if your lookin for a friendly, nice, and funny school. River City BElievers Academy is your school.
