Teen Rescue, Inc. was founded as a nonprofit in 1989 and is dedicated to helping families and their teenagers. In addition to having a private boarding school, Teen Rescue also provides a free referral service for those who may not be a good fit for our program.
“RVCA is a fully accredited, private Christian residential school.”
After operating as exclusively a referral service, in 1993 Teen Rescue opened our own fully accredited, private Christian residential school. River View Christian Academy is located in Northern California and is designed for our students to be a safe, structured environment in order to give them the best opportunity to focus on their education without distraction. We are one of the only Christian boarding school in California that does not discriminate against students who have had behavioral issues and will accept any student qualified for public school even if they have been expelled.*
We restore teens to a healthy outlook on life through loving redirection, teaching life skills and building character through integrity, boundaries, and self control.
We serve all families, regardless of religion, beliefs, or background. Although RVCA is a Christian organization, students and parents are not required or pressured to participate in spiritual activities.
“Students have the opportunity to catch up in school if they are behind.”
We provide a high staff-to-student ratio with an individualized curriculum and program for each student. Due to our year-round educational system, students have the opportunity to catch up in school if they are behind.
Another unique and important aspect of RVCA is parent involvement in the child’s education. We provide monthly parent-teacher conferences and support meetings as well as eight months of Post Graduate Home Support.

Our purpose is to help you find the best option for you and your family. If our school is not a good fit, we also provide free referrals to programs or other schools that may better fit your needs.
Payment options are available for those who have a need and are qualified for assistance. Please contact us if this is your situation.
