A Christ Centered Education
Rainier Christian Schools serves families of South King County who are committed to Christian education. The district was created in 1994, following the merger of Kent View Christian Schools and Maple Valley Christian School, each with a rich legacy of Christian education spanning more than 40 years.
The formation of the district facilitated the creation of our middle school, Rainier (Formerly Covington) Christian Middle School, and a third elementary school in the Highlands area of Renton (including Highlands Preschool & Childcare). Our district has allowed us to continue expanding our programs, a particular blessing as we seek to meet the needs of a burgeoning demand for Christian education at the elementary, middle, and high school levels.
Our school programs are designed to educate and develop each student for the glory of God. This is done by encouraging and strengthening each student's personal relationship to Jesus Christ. The educational focus integrates God's Word into all aspects of the learning experience. Rainier Christian Schools does not stress any specific denominational teaching. We strive to emphasize a biblical foundation in all curriculum and programs. In addition to biblical instruction within the classroom, students participate in regular chapel programs, ministry outreach, and short-term missions.
Our commitment to educating students in a Christ-centered environment is whole-hearted. It is our desire to support the efforts between the home and school to train up each child to be the man or woman that God has called him or her to be. We strive to nurture a Christian worldview so that each child can become a true servant-leader, impacting the world for Christ through family, church, work, and world around them.
Our teachers, staff, and administrators are dedicated to an outstanding educational experience. Their commitment to the ministry of Rainier Christian Schools is evident in their service to the children and families of our district. They "let the little children come to Jesus, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." (Matt 19:14).It is the policy of RCS not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability in the admission and access to, or treatment or employment in its programs or activities.
