SAN ANTONIO – Nestled in central San Antonio, River City Christian School (RCCS) is using the power of Christ year round to combat learning disabilities in San Antonio youths.
“River City Christian School provides a Christ-centered environment in order to help students who learn differently,” said Erica McCormick, principal of RCCS. “ To gain knowledge and understanding of not only the power of Christ in our lives and how it affects us in our learning, but also gives [students] the skills and knowledge that they need to get through school.”
RCCS is one of a handful of schools in San Antonio that accepts students with severe Attention Deficit Hyperactivity disorder, Asperger’s disorder, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia and Central Auditory Processing disorder.
They currently accept students year round for Pre-K (ages 3-4) thru 12th grade and are registered as a nonprofit. They are currently accredited by International Christian Accrediting Association.
“We just had a new student come to us whose mother has searched all over the United States and found us here. She just moved down from Colorado,” McCormick said.
RCCS currently offers students opportunities to earn skills and achievements to prepare them for the workforce or college. Their latest addition is a culinary program teaching the future chefs of tomorrow the ways around a professional kitchen.
“We do take volunteers that come in. We have a number of parents that volunteer with us,” McCormick said. “We also accept [financial] donations into our school as well.”
RCCS also grants scholarships to eligible students who apply. They believe there is no obstacle that the Holy Spirit cannot overcome.
