General Information

Redding Collegiate Academy


We are excited to offer our Redding Collegiate Academy as an educational alternative for parents and students. Redding Collegiate Academy (RCA) offers a positive alternate educational format utilizing the District's adopted core curriculum, tailored to meet the needs of each student. It allows flexibility in scheduling and an opportunity to participate in activities with children enrolled in EESD schools. RCA is a state-funded Independent Study Program which accommodates parents who choose to educate their children at home. Parents assume responsibility for their students' academic development and success. There is no cost to participate in this program. Certificated teachers assist parents and students and monitor academic progress.

I am Chuck Seligman, principal of the Redding Collegiate Academy, and I would be delighted to discuss our program with you. Contact me by phone at 530-224-4240.
