Greetings from the Principal:
Let me introduce you to Robinson Township Christian School (RTCS). Located a short distance off of the Parkway West, approximately halfway between downtown Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh International Airport, we are a pre-K – 12th grade school providing Christian education for students and their families since 1978.
What is it that makes us different? With more than 35 years of experience providing quality Christian education, RTCS has a proven track record. At RTCS you get the best of both worlds: an intimate classroom setting as well as many of the class selections and extracurricular activities offered in larger schools. Our student-to-teacher ratio at the elementary level is, on average, 11:1, and in many cases that ratio is even smaller in the upper school, depending on the course. We offer a challenging curriculum that has generated excellent results. In fact, the SAT scores of graduates over a four-year period, as compared to 153 public, private, and parochial schools in western Pennsylvania, ranks RTCS in the top five! An RTCS education also provides college scholarship opportunities for our graduates. Since 2006, six students have received full four-year college scholarships, and three others have received scholarships of at least $12,000 at such four-year institutions as West Point Military Academy, Michigan State, Geneva College, and Robert Morris University.
In addition to the academic benefits at RTCS, there are extracurricular opportunities. If fine arts are your interest, we offer opportunities to participate in dramas, musicals, and choir. If you are interested in student organizations, you can work on the student newspaper, the yearbook, or student council. We have math and community service clubs as well.
Are you interested in sports? RTCS has several athletic opportunities, including varsity coed soccer in the fall, men’s and women’s basketball in the winter, and track and field in the spring. Many of these opportunities are available at the middle school level.
We are distinctively Christian in our approach to education; therefore, we develop our curriculum wherein all subjects are unashamedly Christ-centered and Bible-based. As stated in our philosophy, every element of our curriculum is permeated in God’s word. Ultimately, our mission is to “provide a Christ-centered education in which students are motivated to seek wisdom and knowledge and to develop a Christian character and witness, so that they may faithfully fulfill their calling in church, family, and society.” This is fulfilled not only through our curriculum, but also in our daily devotions and weekly chapel services. We also offer opportunities for Christian service through the student council and the community service club.
I highly recommend Robinson Township Christian School as a safe environment for your child to receive a quality Christian education. But don’t take my word for it; discover RTCS for yourself. Explore our web site, and call our school office at 412-787-5919 to schedule a visit. We will be glad to host your child for a day as he/she shadows another student and attends all scheduled school activities. I am excited about what we are doing at RTCS, and I trust that you will give us a chance to show you what RTCS has to offer.
