Welcome to the Home of Right Start Academy®

Right Start Academy (RSA) is a curriculum-based preschool dedicated to giving children the "Right Start" to a successful academic future. The premise behind Right Start Academy is to provide children with two vital pieces needed for a successful future. The two major disciplines of focus for RSA are:

  1. Rendering a comprehensive curriculum that provides advanced preparation for kindergarten.
  2. Integrating fun, physical fitness that offers knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to become healthy, active children.

The motto of Right Start Academy is "Developing POTENTIAL into child at a time!" At RSA, we believe that every child has the potential to be successful at whatever their little minds can dream up. Your child has the POTENTIAL to be the next President of the United States. She has the POTENTIAL to be the doctor that she pretends to be while playing.  He has the POTENTIAL to live a long healthy life where exercise is routinely integrated into his daily life. Let Right Start Academy help them develop all of their hidden potential...into REALITY!
