We are Riverstone United

Riverstone United Christian Academy (RUCA) is a new private school option for families in and around Chester County. We are an independent, Christian middle school and high school that serves students in grades 6-12. Our educators are driven to support your child’s academic success through Christian education. We challenge students with a rigorous and active curriculum, and we support them with small class sizes and individualized attention.

Does this sound like a place your child would flourish in? Come meet us at one of our upcoming open house events, or call us to arrange a tour date for your child to spend time with us, experience our unique culture, and meet other students.

Our vision for Riverstone United Christian Academy is that families see and celebrate God’s faithfulness as your children grow their faith, engage their passions and discover their purpose.

Staffed by highly experienced Christian teachers and administrators, Riverstone United will provide students with a place to explore biblical truths in their daily life through a faith-focused education.

Just as rivers transform the land around them, our education is designed to cultivate strong spiritual foundations for our students by transforming them into Kingdom-minded learners.
