RCE is located on the spacious grounds of Redwood Chapel Community Church in Castro Valley, California. Offering instruction in Kindergarten through 5th Grade, the mission of Redwood Christian Schools and RCE is to provide a Christ-centered education which is able to equip students for daily living and eternal life. RCE is duly-accredited through both the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) as well as the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). This dual accreditation is a distinction shared by only a handful of elementary schools in the East Bay area.

God has richly blessed and strengthened the ministry at RCE through dedicated faculty, staff, parents, and students since its opening in 1975. Our experienced faculty, many who have been in education for 20 years or more, are committed to nourishing a strong partnership between the home, school, and church in a safe, loving environment. A strong academic program, taught from a foundation of biblical truth and embracing a biblical world view, is supplemented by specialists who teach Physical Education, Classroom Music, and Art. Other elective extracurricular activities include Band, Royal Choir, and a variety of sports including basketball, volleyball, track, and bowling (4th through 5th grades). Also, Extended Day Care, a before and after-school day care program for students, is available beginning at 7:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.

If you are a prospective parent, choosing the right school for your child is a daunting process with life-long implications, and I want to thank you for your interest in RCE. I invite you to take time to thoroughly browse our website, and I encourage you to give us a call and schedule an appointment to visit and take a short tour. We would love to throw the welcome mat out for you, have you meet our “family” here at RCE, and prayerfully consider us as your partners in the education of your child.

Serving Christ through education,
Dale Huemoeller
RCE Principal
