Mission Hills Christian School and Saddleback Valley Christian School together bring over 6 decades of experience in providing excellent Christian education that is built on the Word of God and is intentionally designed to help each child discover and live into his or her God-given purpose. As a ministry of The Bridge Church RSM, we will move into the bright future God has for us as Rancho Santa Margarita Christian School (RSMCS).
We continue to provide a loving, safe environment in which our students can learn and grow. As such, we carefully consider scientific data, evidence-based practices, and the realities of what can be expected of students, especially those in early grade levels.
While you will notice a gradual transition on our website, communication pieces, and social media to reflect the new face of RSMCS, the core values of our community remain steadfast.
“Every day, we hear of children struggling in school and in life. As parents, it can be overwhelming to know what to do. Your school should come alongside you in this journey. RSM Christian School offers affordable education and partners with parents to build a faith-filled community that focuses on developing the whole child so children will flourish in every area of life.”

What sets rsm Christian school apart?
RSM Christian School is more than a school. We are family. We learn together, serve together, and worship together. We celebrate one another and link arms to hold one another up through difficult seasons of life. When you come to RSM Christian School, you are family.
Affordable Education: A Worthwhile Investment
We recognize the financial investment involved in a quality private education. RSM Christian School proudly offers Variable Tuition, a need-based tuition assistance program similar to those used by many private schools, colleges, and universities. This program considers each family’s unique financial situation, making an RSMCS education affordable to many qualified families who could not otherwise join our school community.
Excellence in Education
Our students score in the top 10% in the nation on standardized testing. Over 70% of our graduates participate in honors classes in high school, and 86% maintain a 3.5 GPA or higher. Just as important, parents often tell us how much their kids love coming to school.
Every Child is Known
From the classroom teachers and aides to office and outdoor staff, RSM Christian School is committed to nurturing the unique potential of each student. You could say that we become students of our students in order to help them become all that God has created them to be. Within an intimate campus setting, our students thrive in a caring community where they feel safe, loved, and valued as individuals. It is not uncommon to hear, “He was able to finally be himself when he came to RSM Christian School.”
Small Class Sizes
Our Preschool and Junior Kindergarten classes maintain a 2:15 student/teacher ratio, and our K - 8th Grade classes maintain a 1:24 teacher/student ratio. At RSM Christian School, “falling through the cracks” is not an option.
Faith-Filled Family Community
RSM Christian School is much more than a school. It’s a true community where parents, students, siblings, grandparents, teachers, and staff come together as a family to celebrate victories, support one another through difficulty, and love one another as Christ intended.
Christian Values & Discipleship
Discipleship is at the heart of RSM Christian School. Christian values that are taught in the home and at church are practiced and championed at school where students experience what it means to be Christ-like in their attitudes and behaviors. Staff and faculty are called to model love, compassion, and grace for our students, and students are encouraged and affirmed in each of these core values.
