Children's Rainbow Day School (2 years old – K4) / Rainbow Christian Academy (K – 8th grade) is a fully accredited, non-denominational Christian school in Miami, Florida founded to partner with families who want their children to receive an excellent academic education combined with a Biblical worldview in every subject.  We desire to offer a safe, nurturing, family environment where families and faculty can partner together to bring up the whole child in a preschool, elementary, and middle school setting where "Christ is Honored and Children are Loved".  We are committed to preparing students for advanced education, as well as Christian lives of leadership and service.
Our school, not only offers a solid academic education, but also provides many programs, courses, and opportunities which together nurture and develop the whole child.  Such programs consist of, but are not limited to, music classes, instrument lessons, art classes, dance classes, sports, etc.  We also offer after school care with supervised homework assistance and outdoor time on our large, shaded playground.
 At Children's Rainbow Day School and Rainbow Christian Academy we believe that, "IT'S BETTER TO BUILD A CHILD, THAN REPAIR A MAN!"

School Reviews

This school has the BEST administrators, teachers, and staff, who very quickly become your FAMILY! They treat each student in the school as if they are their very own children. Aside from the EXCELLENT curriculum and delivery of instruction, the loving family environment will make you and your children feel right at home. My kids LOVE going to school and make me stick around when I go pick them up because they don't want to leave! I recommend this school for all children from ages 2-middle school.
