Do I need to attend Rez.Church in order to enroll at the school?

You do not need to be an attending member of Rez.Church in order to have your student attend RCS. While partner with Rez.Church to bring you the very best education possible, our students represent over 60 churches from 20 different denominations. If you do not have a home church, we strongly recommend that you give the Rez.Church a try and attend one of their fantastic weekend services.

  • Can my child separate from me without being upset?
  • Is my child able to follow three verbal directions such as: “Go upstairs, get your shoes, and put your shoes on”?
