IRC Christian Academy

Launching Students for Life.

IRC and The Kids’ Place are excited to announce the opening of our new school, Indian River City Christian Academy!

This has been a dream for many years and we are excited to begin this journey. We are committed to excellence as the foundation for our new school and you can expect the same care and love for your child parents have experienced for over 40 years. 

The 2022-23 school year is now underway with the first kindergarten class of IRCCA Rockets!

Check back for updates on registration for the 2023-24 school year!

Meet our kindergarten teacher!

Mrs. Michele Dembowski

Kindergarten Teacher

Michele and her husband grew up in Wisconsin and moved to Titusville, Florida in 1996. She has three, children, (Jaime, Kris, & Jennifer) and three adorable grandchildren (Braden, Olivia, & Michaela) which are all her pride and joy. Michele has taught and worked with children all of her adult life. She has a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is certified to teach Prekindergarten/Primary Education Ages 3 through Grade 3. She also has her Professional Endorsement for ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages). Her experiences include being the Lead VPK teacher for 6 years (Certified in Emergent Literacy), 9 years teaching kindergarten, and 3 years teaching second grade. 

Michele has always been a strong believer in God. When the opportunity arose to join the IRCUMC family, she knew that this is where she needed to be. She is very excited to be the new kindergarten teacher and grow in faith with her new students. She found this quote: “Just think, you’re not here by chance, but by God’s choosing to fulfill His special purpose for this generation.” She believes she can make a positive and long lasting impact on her students, her school, and her community.
