Christian School Raided ‘SWAT-Style’ in California

A Christian private school in Northern California was raided by police. The State of California was misled believing River View Christian Academy was harboring illegal drugs and ammunition in preparation for the Apocalypse.

More than 16 armed policemen, 2 canine units and 17 social workers were part of the, “SWAT style raid.” The school is still reeling from that day that took place earlier this year. But their Twitter account doesn’t give any information other than encouraging pictures such as teens receiving water baptism.

Even though the raid came up empty the school is being fined daily with, “claims of improper licensing.” According to Andrea Morris of CBN, “The state is now saying that, due to recent legislation, it is no longer possible for a private boarding school to operate without a considerable amount of licensing and oversight by the Department of Social Services.”

However, Andrea reported, “With the increase in licensing, the Christian school would have to abandon their biblical values. The state requires licensed facilities allow students to have the right to engage in spiritual and sexual exploration. This contradicts the standards set by RVCA and the morals of many parents, the Pacific Justice Institute said.”

River View Christian Academy

River View Christian Academy is part of Teen Rescue. It is founded on Biblical principles helping students focus on their education while changing their character and destructive habits. Their website says, “We restore teens to a healthy outlook on life through loving redirection, teaching life skills and building character through integrity, boundaries, and self control.”

The school is, “designed for our students to be a safe, structured environment in order to give them the best opportunity to focus on their education without distraction. We are one of the only Christian boarding school in California that does not discriminate against students who have had behavioral issues.”

Teen Rescue Legal Representation

Attorney Kevin Snider of the Pacific Justice Institute is representing the ministry. He says, “In 25 years of practice, I have never seen this level of aggressive, militant, and ideologically-driven conduct by a state agency against a religious institution.”

Kevin says the school is being targeted because it is part of a ministry for at-risk teens.
