Spiritual Development
  • 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.

Academic Growth

James 1:5 says "If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generoously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him."  C.F. Richards teachers and students appear to be asking and receiving.  We have top notch, caring, creative teachers, a low teacher:student ratio, and results that speak for themselves: On the ITBS standardized test, C.F. Richards Junior Academy students average composite score is in the 88th percentile of schools nationwide. 

Physical Growth

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!

Social Growth

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.
