For students to excel, they need adequate resources to keep pace with an academic program that both challenges and rewards them. At Red River Valley Junior Academy, we maintain a 12:1 student to teacher ratio. Our small split-grade class size assures that students get the one-on-one attention they need to form a solid foundation in Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies.
Here, we feel positive reinforcement is the best incentive. We believe students who exhibit excellence should be rewarded with praise and recognition. RRVJA annually bestows a number of awards and scholarships for spiritual, academic and athletic accomplishments.
