Focus On Excellence
Rainier Christian Schools serves the families of South King County who are committed to Christian education. Maple Valley Elementary was established in 1963 as a cooperative endeavor of area churches. It flourished as an inter-denominational school with emphasis on serving families of Bible based Christian Churches. 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). All of our campuses are now well established and thriving. Our growing 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.
A Christ Centered Education
Ultimately, the 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. Furthermore, the educational focus integrates God's Word into all aspects of the learning experience. Rainier Christian Schools does not stress any specific denominational teachings, but we do strive to emphasize a biblical foundation in all curriculum and programs. In addition to Bible 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. We are fully supportive of uniting the efforts between the home and school to train up the child to be the man or woman that God has called them 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 the 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).
