Aquidneck Island Christian Academy is the only classical Christian school in Rhode Island. We educate the children of Christian families in the liberal arts tradition of the West. We work with parents to shape the desires and affections of their children in accordance with Holy Scripture, reason, and the great works of the west for the glory of God and the benefit of His creation.

Our Faith

 At Aquidneck Island Christian Academy, we aim to uphold the core of the historic Christian faith as found in the pages of Holy Scripture.

Our History

AICA was established in 1994 as a private, Christian school committed to providing a biblically based education to young people in primary and secondary grade levels. Education at AICA is intended to be inherently different in philosophy and content than that offered in the public schools.

Our Vision

At all levels of education, AICA aims to teach all subjects as part of an integrated whole with the Scriptures at the center (2 Timothy 3:16-17), and much more.


AICA did a wonderful job preparing our three children for college. They each received phenomenal academic scholarships to the schools of their choice and are performing extremely well. AICA's focus on the basics, of teaching a student to learn using the classical model, to write well, and to think critically has provided them with an excellent education. The supportive family atmosphere helped them to grow with confidence and gave them the leadership skills needed to succeed in life. Highly recommend AICA! --Nancy Semco, parent
