The RCA Legacy



Established 1983

Rock Church Academy is a private Christian school in Baltimore founded in 1983. RCA is an exceptional elementary school in Baltimore with a proven history of high standards and academic excellence. For over 35 years Rock Church Academy in Baltimore has helped develop leaders. Many of our alumni today serve in positions of leadership throughout our community: principals, teachers, military officers, business owners, musicians, and more! Our school has a record of academic excellence with students testing higher than other comparable academic programs. 


Rock Church Academy is committed to developing the next generation into tomorrow’s leaders who are anchored in Christ, geared to impact the culture, and walk confidently in their purpose. Our approach to learning focuses on developing the whole child, academically, socially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually. 


Our well-rounded instructional approach fosters critical thinking, communication, character development, learning through play, and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) in a safe, nurturing learning environment. Our building’s theatrical design, newly renovated classrooms and private campus, surrounded by 8 acres of nature, enable us to place an instructional emphasis on the arts, environment and caring for creation. 

We Are Excited to Impact the Next Generation!

 "Rock Church Academy taught me values to live my life as a person of faith and character. Over the years, each teacher provided lessons that challenged me, but always spent time to individually coach subjects or concepts I struggled to grasp. It is truly a family environment that hasn’t lost their mission to train children in the way to go so they won’t depart from godly principles. I have great memories and still keep in touch with several classmates to this day.

The small class sizes and teachers who care about the kids are just two reasons why we love this school!
