Regent Christian Academy welcomed our first International Student in 1989 leading to the founding of our International Program in 1991. Today our International Program has over 100 International students integrated in Kindergarten to Grade 12 and ESL specialty programs. RCA is government accredited and fully satisfies the British Columbia Ministry of Education requirements.
Kindergarten to Grade 8
Integrated spaces for kindergartens (age 5) to grade 8 (age 13) are available in our kind and caring classrooms. It is our experience that at these grade levels students learn English quickly by being immersed in an English classroom environment. Our classes are small which allows for more personal attention and an enriching academic environment. Our BC certified Teachers have experience with welcoming new International students into their classrooms. Many of our International students who have started in our younger grades have stayed with us until graduation. We are a school that believes in respect, kindness and acceptance along with our high academic standards. We would love to welcome you to join us.
GRADES 9 – 12
Students, Grades 9 to 12, are initially accepted into our English Language Learning. They are given a number of tests to determine which level of our program they will enter. In rare cases, a student of high school age may receive direct entry into our regular program. Most students spend one year in our ELL program before they are ready for full integration.
