A Christian School Built on a Firm Foundation

Faith is at our foundation for Riverstone United Christian Academy. Our philosophy of education is built upon truths that are essential to our Christian faith, found in both the Old and New Testaments.

Primarily, we believe in one God, creator of all things, and eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe Jesus Christ is true God and true man, and that out of his great love for us, he died on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins.

Having risen in bodily form from the dead, Jesus Christ now sits in heaven at the right hand of God the Father and serves as our advocate.

We believe that without Christ all people are lost and sinful and that the gift of salvation must be received by personal faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. A Christian school encourages students to fully understand the power of Jesus Christ.

Belief in Jesus as Lord and Savior breaks the power of the evil one and restores our ability to rightly reflect the image of God through the Holy Spirit.

These truths can be summarized as:

  • Biblical truth
  • One God, Creator of all Things
  • Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior
  • Overcoming Evil Through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit

As a Christian School in West Chester with a focus on education, these truths are always held as our foundation and reference.

Service to God, Service to One Another in our West Chester Community

What is the goal of a Christian School? First and foremost, it is to foster an environment for students to become educated on their God-given gifts, talents, and direction.

Ultimately, none of us can make the journey alone. Throughout their time at Riverstone United Christian Academy, students will form relationships that will last a lifetime.

Plus, students will be encouraged to come together as a community in Christ. We believe in the ministry of the Holy Spirit to guide and empower believers for Godly living, service, and love for one another and the world.

In this, our students are equipped to enter the world and inspire positive change for the Kingdom while growing personality and socially.
