PreK Expansion program featured locally

Reid Temple Christian Academy was featured in several local news segments recently for being awarded a state grant that will expand our Bethlehem preschool program.

The grant will allow RTCA to extend our educational resources to our greater community, many of whom may not be able to afford the full cost of an RTCA education.

"Prince George's County is a primarily African American community, and our education matters," said Head of School Dr. Donnette Echols. "We are excited to be part of this program, making sure that every child has access to an excellent foundation for their academic pursuits."

The grant, which was applied for in conjunction with the city of Bowie, will make Bowie the first local jurisdiction to guarantee universal Pre-K.
