Regency Christian Academy (RCA) operates as a ministry of South Orlando Baptist Church (SOBC). Founded in the fall of 1981, RCA began under the name of Noah’s Ark Child Care. Over the years, the Lord richly blessed the ministry, growing it to include a Morning Preschool program and a Kindergarten class with the name Regency Christian School. In the fall of 2001, all three programs (Full-Time Preschool, Morning Preschool and Elementary) were united under the name of Regency Christian Academy. The emphasis has moved away from “daycare” to providing outstanding preschool and elementary education to our students. After many requests, RCA branched out further and offered 6th grade, Middle School, for the first time in the fall of 2009. By the fall of 2011, all middle school grades were offered at RCA. Furthermore, after becoming licensed, RCA offered Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten in the fall of 2012. God continues to bless our program, and it is the continuing goal of SOBC and RCA to grow a Christ-centered school that provides outstanding Christian education and brings glory to our Heavenly Father.
The purposes of RCA are as follows:
1) To provide every child and parent the opportunity and understanding necessary to accept Jesus Christ as his or her Savior when ready.
2) To provide an academically superior Christian education for preschoolers, elementary students, and middle schoolers.
3) To model and train children to become leaders of integrity through Bible-based character development.
