RCS High School Vision

 

Our Dream is to create a Christ-centered secondary campus in SE King County that will serve middle school and high school students. A school that will annually send out 100 graduates with a fully devoted relationship with Christ and a well-developed biblical worldview.

 

Why?

  • Spiritual Need:

High School students need a Christ-centered educational option.

  • Location Need: 

Existing Christian high schools are not located to serve SE King County conveniently. 

  • Growth Need: 

God has increasingly entrusted RCS with more families. We cannot expand on our current campus.

Where?

  • 16 acres between Maple Valley and Covington.
  • Easy access from HWY 18 off 256th St exit.
  • Located on 204th Ave SE, which will become a main commuter arterial serving the fastest growing area of King County.
  • 9 miles SE from current campus. 
  • Our desire is to create a transportation hub between campuses to assist in student transportation.

When?

  • Our current target to open Phase 1 is the 2027-2028 school year. The exact school year will be announced when a firm open date is determined.
  • We will offer a bridge option for one year prior to the initial year. 

Cost Estimate?

  • Initial cost estimates indicate all project phases will be around $50 million. 
  • Funding sources will include fundraising, applied savings, and long-term financing.
