“For us, it was all about the whole child.” ~ RA Parent

It’s the small things that they do that make the biggest difference, making the community feel like a family and a second home. For example, recently, my oldest son spent a few days in the hospital for pneumonia and missed several days of school. His teacher understood that I was very uneasy about him returning to class. Despite her busy schedule, she managed to email me a photo of my son and daughter spontaneously hugging as they passed each other in the hall, which is rare, to ease my mind. It's these small, but unforgettable moments that stand out for me and motivate me to continue to help RA be its best for all of our children. ~ Daniell Van Riper P'25, 27, 30
