About Our School
Daily Worship: Each classroom begins the day with worship, a time for singing, prayer, and reading of the Bible and other religious material. There is no better way to start the school day than by inviting God into each heart and mind!
Weekly Chapel Services: Each Friday morning the entire student body gathers for a joyous, student-led celebration of Christ. Skits, musical instrument selections, movies, and more are used to uplift the Savior and develop the God-given talents our students possess.
Daily Bible Classes: Age-appropriate Bible lessons are taught in each grade to help students grow in their knowledge of the Word of God and their love for the “Word made flesh,” Jesus.
Fall Week of Prayer and Spring Week of Prayer: twice each school year dynamic guest speakers provide a week of spiritual emphasis and renewal that consistently culminate in some students giving their hearts to Christ for the first time and others renewing their commitment to Him.
According to a study reported in the March 26, 2007 issue of Newsweek Magazine "For kids, even a few games of kickball can boost the brain in widespread, long-lasting ways." At C.F. Richards, students receive instruction in the care of their body, God's temple, and plenty of brain-boosting exercise 4 - 5 days a week. Kickball, volleyball, basketball, soccer, softball, dodgeball and much more!
At C.F. Richards, students are able to participate in school-wide dramatic and choral productions, bell choirs, private musical instruction, and numerous field trips to a wide variety of venues. Students also learn to work together, pray together, and help others through many of their activities.
These are just some examples of the many ways in which spiritual, academic, physical, and social growth are purposely facilitated and encouraged at C.F. Richards Junior Academy.
