About RCA

The Ron Clark Academy (RCA) is a highly-acclaimed, nonprofit middle school located in Southeast Atlanta. Our mission is to deliver the highest quality educational experience where global citizens are born through engaging teaching methods, academic excellence, relationship building, and a passionate climate and culture.

The school purposely enrolls students from diverse academic, social, emotional and economic backgrounds and equips them with the knowledge, attitudes, skills and habits that are essential for success in high school, college, and life.

Students at the Ron Clark Academy do not pay any tuition.  They pay only a modest monthly fee for uniforms, lunches, etc.  This unique feature removes economic status as a consideration.  Relying on teacher recommendations, interviews and assessments they also consciously curate each incoming class with:

      • 1/3 with attention/focus challenges
      • 1/3 with discipline/behavior challenges
      • 1/3 already excellent students
    • The amazing results of their approach are:

      • 100% of RCA alumni graduate from high school and 91% attend college or a university
      • Of the alumni who attend college, 35% attend either a Top 50 National University, Top 50 Liberal Arts College, or a Top 10 HBCU

We are thrilled to have their alumni as our funnel of applicants. Please help us help these high-potential students become future leaders.
