About The Royal International Christian Academy (RICA)

The Royal International Christian Academy (RICA) was established in 2011, and has faithfully served the Christian community since, and offers an affordable, quality Christian education.

The Academy exclusively uses the Accelerated Christian Education (A.C.E.) curriculum. A.C.E. has published individualized curriculum and provided training in its implementation for grades K-12 since 1970 and provides a Christ-centered education to our students.

The unique format of the curriculum allows students to advance from unit to unit as they demonstrate mastery. Each student moves independently through the curriculum at optimum level under guidence of academic supervisors.

A.C.E. is more than quality academics. The curriculum is built on a theistic philosophic foundation. Students learn to see life from God’s point of view. Their personal relationship with God and their personal responsibilities to family, church and community are of primary concern.

In addition to the standard school subjects, students are also taught Bible courses and life skills from a Biblical perspective. Students of every ethnicity are being given a quality education and a personal knowledge of the one and only true God.
