The RCS Difference
Mission: Boldly Christian – Academically Equipped – Globally prepared
Each year, ACT publishes a report that compares RCS’s graduating class ACT scores to the state averages. There are four assessments within the ACT: math, English writing, reading and science reasoning. There is also a composite score that represents the average of the four areas. The RCS composite scores have steadily trended above state scores over the past eight years. Furthermore, we are excited to announce that the RCS graduating class of 2016 showed significant increases, with a composite ACT score of 25.6 compared to the state composite of 20.2! And, in each content area, the growth was very notable.
RCS makes sure that your children are ready for the college application process. Our college prep class meets for 170 days (or 170 hours) and the curriculum covers ACT and SAT preparation with a total of eight practice ACT and SAT tests. Our instructors work with students to help them learn important skills such as writing their resume, college essays, how to assemble their portfolio, how to interview with college representatives, as well as many other essential elements of college preparation. In comparison, the cost at a local learning center for a class called ACT Prep (just that alone) is $3,100 for 40 hours. Learn more.
DIBELS measure is a quick and efficient indicator of how well a child is doing in learning a particular early reading skill.
DIBELS help identify students who may need additional instruction to become good readers, and helps monitor those students to ensure they make adequate progress.
92% of RCS Elementary students are performing at, or above, benchmark on Dibels. Almost all of our students are making academic progress in Reading Fluency skills.
