Renaissance Village Academy (RVA) is an exciting new schooling option for parents seeking to challenge their gifted, profoundly gifted, and highly motivated children.

Tired of watching your bright child being bored at school?

Bright students can often become complacent about their school performances, rarely pushing their ability to change (or not change) anything, or question views about the world around them, and become disinterested. At RVA, we will question almost every assumption a children comes in with, asking them to analyze and justify what they believe, and ultimately to take responsibility for their own learning.
