Ripley Christian Academy is offering an opportunity for parents to enroll their children for the 2021-2022 school year.

The open enrollment began March 25 and will continue until August for the K-12 school.

According to Pastor Keenan Goosman, who serves as principal and administrator of the school, it is best to enroll sooner than later.

“We try to keep our class size to 12 per teacher,” he said. “We offer re-enrollment to our current students first and spaces that are left are available to those interested in being part of our school.”

Once capacity is filled, everyone else goes on to a waiting list.

The principal encourages parents who are interested in the school to call and set up a tour. They will be able to tour classrooms and meet teachers.

While the school is associated with the local church, Goosman says that Ripley Christian Academy is a ‘community Christian church.’ A wide variety of students are currently enrolled.
