Students across all four RCSA campuses are involved in academic teams including Science and Math Olympiad. Students combine academic skills with the spirit of teamwork, leadership and competition. Students participate in all day events across the state throughout the year. Individual students and teams have received many awards in these competitions, and RCSA is proud to hold a strong legacy in both events, including winning the Science Olympiad State Championship.


Students in teams of up to 35 4-8 graders compete in math problem solving contests. The goal of the program is to stimulate a love for mathematics, introduce important concepts and strategies and foster mathematical creativity in problem solving. RCSA students compete in Mathletics and Mathcounts competitions at the local, state and national levels throughout the year.


Science Olympiad is a national program in which students learn science through active, hands-on participation with an emphasis on problem solving and team building skills. Students from different schools compete in events designed to be fun, exciting and challenging. Some events require knowledge of science facts and concepts while others rely on scientific processes, skills and applications so students with varying skills can participate. Science Olympiad also brings team spirit and practice in good sportsmanship.

15 students compete on a team responsible for 23 events. New students usually start with two events, while veteran competitors cover four or five. RCSA competes at the regional and state level and has taken home numerous gold, silver and bronze medals at all levels. RCSA competed at the national level after winning the state championship in 2018.


Tomorrow’s innovators practice imaginative thinking and teamwork*.*Guided by adult Coaches, _FIRST_ LEGO League teams research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. They also must design, build, program a robot using LEGO MINDSTORMS® technology, then compete on a table-top playing field. It all adds up to tons of fun while they learn to apply science, technology, engineering, and math concepts (STEM), plus a big dose of imagination, to solve a problem. Along their discovery journey, they develop critical thinking and team-building skills, basic STEM applications, and even presentation skills, as they must present their solutions with a dash of creativity to judges. They also practice the Program’s signature Core Values.
