The mission of the Rainbow Christian Academy is to join in partnership with families in order to develop the whole child for the glory of God through exemplary academic standards and extracurricular activity programs.
Each child is wonderfully and fearfully made with talents and abilities waiting to be developed.
The vision of Rainbow Christian Academy is to see the great commissions fulfilled by students as they leave and go into high school, other schools, in their community and eventually serve God through Christian leadership roles throughout the world.
We believe every child can be successful if given the appropriate foundation and tools.
By forming a partnership between home and Christ directed educators, academic training, and social development.
We are not an institution of reform but primarily believe "It is Better to Build a Child than Repair a Man".
We strive to be a school where Christ is Honored and Children are Loved.
It is the goal of Children's Rainbow/Rainbow Christian Academy to be an instrument designed by God to bring souls to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.
