It should be sent to the person who knows you best and can speak to your family's spiritual life and commitment to a local body of Believers. Your online application will ask for an email address.

The Teacher recommendation may be sent to the most previous kinder or elementary school teacher. For grades 6-11, the teacher recommendation should be sent to either the student's English, math, or science teacher. Your online application will ask for an email address. The recommendation will be automatically sent out and received back into your online application. You will be notified via email when your recommendation has been received.
Step 2 – Assessment
Students in PK-3 through 2nd grade are given an admissions assessment to aid in determining their compatibility with the academic environment at RCBA. We will review older students' previous school academic records and make a determination if additional evaluation is needed. The admissions office will contact you if this step is necessary.
Step 3 – Interview
Once evaluation is complete and all student records have been received, the admissions review committee will review the student’s file and determine whether the family will be invited for an interview. We request that both parents attend the interview, as well as students applying. You will be contacted to schedule this interview.
Step 4 – Admissions Decision
Official acceptance (or non-acceptance) will be communicated in writing within two weeks of the family interview or admissions review committee decision. Often this happens much quicker, however during peak enrollment season it could take up to two weeks to receive a decision.
Step 5 – Enrollment Agreement & Tuition Payment Plan
Upon the student’s acceptance to the school, parents will receive an online enrollment agreement via email. In this agreement, you will be asked to set up your online payment plan through FACTS Tuition Management Services. This is a required step and it gives you flexibility to choose bank accounts, dates for withdrawals, and can be updated and changed at any time. Upon set-up of your FACTS account, you will be asked to make your Enrollment Payment. We would like for you to complete this enrollment agreement within two weeks.
