bk-Who we are

Welcome to Richmond Academy!

Richmond Academy has a rich heritage based on helping our students love, learn, and live in Christ. Because of our dedication to quality Christian education, Richmond Academy is fully accredited PrK-12 school where faith, academics and technology have been successfully integrated.

Richmond Academy (RA) was established in 1911 and has been in continual operation, although at different locations, since that time. RA is part of the Seventh-day Adventist educational system that is the largest Protestant Christian school system in the world. We believe that the Creator’s design is for “whole person” development and that, no matter what your religion or philosophy of life, an Adventist school education can help your child make better moral decisions and grow up to become a trustworthy community leader.

Students in U.S. Adventist schools perform a half-grade-level better than the national average. And the longer they attend, the greater their success – CognitiveGenesis

The Virginia Council for Private Education, the Virginia Department of Education, and the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists Board of Education accredits Richmond Academy for its Pre-kindergarten through 12th grade.
