Alumni Weekend 2020
Due to government directives and health concerns related to the novel coronavirus pandemic, and in light of third term classes being conducted online, we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Alumni Weekend. Should the global and national situation substantially change, we will issue a new statement by mid-June with our final decision.
“What’s your dream, and to what corner of the missions world will it take you?”
“The key to entering well is leaving well.”
Hopefully your transition process is going well. This doesn’t mean it won’t be difficult, confusing, or even painful at times; all of this is normal. Remember that everyone goes through transition––at differing rates, degrees, and intensity––but everyone goes through it. You’re not alone, nor are you odd; you’re in transition.
Below are downloadable files of the handouts from your senior transition seminar. Please make use of them as often as you need. Start with the Transition Model and the Transition Experience. Try to get a grasp on where you are in the process. Remember that this process can take many months, so if you’re well into your first year of college and thought you were fine, but now find yourself inexplicably emotional or confused, please don’t worry. Use these tools, talk to others, and soon you’ll feel settled again.
We’re praying for you and trusting God to lead you in this exciting new chapter in your story.

Alumni Transcript Requests
Alumni in North America:
Former students of RVA from the Class of 2016 and prior may request transcripts from the Association of Christian Schools International in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Email ACSI directly at email@example.com or visit the Transcript Depository on ACSI’s website: www.acsi.org/interest/international/international-school-transcript-depository.
Alumni outside of North America:
Students outside of North America should contact RVA directly.
Many institutions are beginning to accept transcripts sent as a PDF email attachment. If this is acceptable to the college or employer you are working with, please send us the appropriate email address, and we will send the required document.
Official, sealed transcripts:
We will prepare an official, sealed transcript if needed. We will try to catch someone to carry it to the US for mailing. In some situations, we will mail the transcript from Kenya. Expect this to take 2 to 4 weeks (or longer).
All graduating students are given a diploma and an unofficial transcript. An official transcript is sent to the college of their choice. The graduates also receive the contact information for the ACSI depository mentioned above.
*Please note that RVA does not hold on to graduated students’ medical records for longer than 5 years.
