About Us

RCCA was begun initially as a form of a Japanese “juku”, colloquially known as a “cram school”, so prevalent in Japan and the Far East. Having lived in Japan for over two years (1979-1980), he saw the efficiency of these schools, which are designed for the express purpose of preparing students in the essentials of academic pursuit, for the purpose of entering a high caliber post-secondary institution.  After teaching in a private school on the West Coast, he noticed the appallingly low level of academics, especially in English and Math.  Supplementing his own education with a strict program of phonics (blended sight and sounds) and a highly structured approach to teaching English in a variety of writing models, RCCA was born.  RCCA is thus unique to Richmond and the West Coast.
