Rossville Christian Academy Vision Statement
Rossville Christian Academy aspires to produce successful, well-rounded leaders who will serve in a secular world according to Christian principles.
Located in the small community of Rossville, Tennessee, in the southwestern corner of Fayette County, Rossville Christian Academy is a small, independent school currently serving approximately 300 students from grades K-4 through 12th grade. With a focus on college preparatory coursework, the school is fully accredited through AdvancED, the parent accreditation division of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), and is a member of the Tennessee Association of Independent Schools (TAIS) and the Memphis Association of Independent Schools (MAIS).
Since 1969, Rossville Christian Academy has been serving families in Fayette County, Shelby County and north Mississippi, who desire a quality education for their children based on a Christian worldview. Keeping in mind these Christian principles, community service demonstrating God’s love for others is an integral part of student life at Rossville Christian Academy. Our Student Ministries program coordinates mission opportunities throughout the year, and Chapel Services are a regular part of the school’s weekly activities, from the elementary grades through high school. As you can see by our Mission and Vision Statements, we strive to prepare students, not only for college, but for life.
Rossville Christian Academy is governed by a 9-Person Board of Directors, elected by the body of patrons (members) at Rossville Christian Academy for three-year terms. Each year, nominations for candidates for the Board of Directors are accepted by the Board of Directors, and three Directors are elected at the Annual General Membership Meeting in August to replace three directors that are rotating off the board after completing their three-year terms. Board members may seek re-election for an unlimited number of terms, but according to the By-laws, must have an active student at Rossville Christian Academy. The four officers--Chairman, Vice Chairman, Treasurer, and Secretary--are chosen by the directors themselves from among the nine elected, and officers may change on a yearly basis. The Board of Directors does not manage the day-to-day operations of the school, but sets policies and procedures, and oversees fiscal matters.
