  • Student-Driven Wild Game Dinner a Success!

    Rock Springs Christian Academy hosted more than 500 supporters at its third annual Wild Game Dinner held Saturday, April 29. The event, which is designed to raise money for RSCA’s senior mission project in Haiti, featured special words from students, Professional Bass Fisherman Jay “Striker” Barnett, and Georgia’s Lieutenant Governor Casey Cagle. Barnett shared key tips and secrets for fishing in nearby lakes, and the Lieutenant Governor shared a personal story on how a pastor’s financial support for him to attend a Christian youth camp as a young boy led to his own personal acceptance of Christ. Graduating Senior Hannah Ard shared her own personal testimony and about the life-changing impact a 2016 Haiti Mission trip experience has had on her life.

    RSCA’s third annual Wild Game Dinner also featured silent and live auctions, raffle drawings, entertainment from the Ron McNeal and Friends bluegrass band, plus a special middle school chorus performance of old hymns including Are You Washed in the Blood and I’ll Fly Away.

    Wild game menu highlights included snow goose, fried alligator, venison sausage, deer meatloaf, quail, wild turkey, and more. Student volunteers served a fried fish fillet dinner to each guest.

    “Our annual Wild Game dinner is a student-driven event,” said RSCA’s Head of School Mr. Derrell Jeffcoat. He added “Our students actually help prepare the food in the days leading up to the event and they do everything from setting up the room, decorating, speaking, serving, and cleaning up afterward. All of this is in line with our school’s core values of instilling strong work ethic, displaying Christian attributes and character, demonstrating talents, and accepting challenges. I am extremely proud of what they pulled off together Saturday night.”

    The title sponsor for RSCA’s Wild Game dinner was Jonesboro Rental Center. Other sponsors and supporters included Sexton Law Firm, Griffin Trophy and Embroidery, Volume Chevrolet & Buick, United Bank in Zebulon, B&B Fabrication | Custom Trailers, McGhin’s Southern Pit Barbeque, York’s Processing Plant, and Carden Foods. The Haiti mission project itself is organized by Rock Springs Global Outreach.

  • RSCA Fine-Arts partners with Spalding Collaborative on “Little Free Libraries” project

    Students in RSCA’s fine-arts program are practicing visual arts skills by painting “Little Free Libraries” to be placed throughout the community.

    A Spalding Collaborative initiative, the little free libraries are hand-crafted structures filled with constantly changing collections of books donated and shared by people of all ages and backgrounds. Most of the libraries are placed in front yards, parks and gardens and are built to withstand weather of all kinds and hold 20 to 100 books. The program is a free “take a book, leave a book” program designed to promote literacy in the community.

    The Griffin/Spalding Chamber of Commerce recently held a ribbon-cutting for the first little free library at the Fairmont Homes after-school program CHARMS. The library was donated by Designs Created International and paint-designed by Fine-Arts students at Rock Springs Christian Academy.

    To learn how you can join in and participate in The Little Free Library initiative, contact Spalding Collaborative representative Brett Bell at brettbell@designscreated.biz

  • RSCA Celebrates School Choice

    Rock Springs Christian Academy recently celebrated National School Choice Week (NSCW). Held every January, NSCW shines a positive spotlight on effective education options for every child. Throughout the country, more than 16,000 events were held at traditional public schools, public charter schools, magnet schools, private schools, and within homeschool groups to celebrate school choice options.

    “The option here at Rock Springs Christian Academy ties together an excellent private Christian school education with affordability,” said RSCA Head of School Mr. Derrell Jeffcoat. “Paired with affordable tuition rates, our offerings in academics, sports, fine-arts, missions, and other extra-curricular programming makes Rock Springs Christian Academy an outstanding school choice for local students and families.”

    Annual tuition at RSCA is about $5,000, and each child is awarded a minimum of $3,000 each year to cover the additional costs of the overall educational experience including facilities and operational expenses, athletics, fine arts, support staff, and many other resources and opportunities. The school is able to provide such a unique offering with support from Rock Springs Church, corporate support, and key partnerships with RSCA families through fundraising and volunteerism.

    To celebrate National School Choice week at RSCA, fine-arts students in seventh and eighth grades performed the official NSCW dance during halftime at a home basketball game Monday evening, January 23. Started in 2011, NSCW has grown into the world’s largest celebration of opportunity in education. The week is a nonpartisan, nonpolitical public awareness effort.
