Dave Rehnberg, Principal

The high school years are challenging years of exploration and inquiry. Students often possess strong beliefs that rapidly evolve and change. These years are also years of great potential and natural growth characterized by the seeking of personal freedom and independence.

At Rainier Christian High School, we don’t merely focus on academics. We endeavor to educate and develop the whole person for the glory of God. Trained instructors guide students in exploring their world from a perspective that recognizes God as Creator, each individual as a unique creation of God fashioned after His own image and worthy of respect, and the world as designed by God to reflect purpose and order. Weekly chapels and co-curricular activities reinforce these important values.

In the classroom, students are engaged in discussions, encouraged to ask relevant and difficult questions, and guided to consider the vast array of potential solutions to those questions. At the same time, students are challenged to be discerning and to develop those intellectual and moral determinations based on the inspiration and counsel of Scripture. Students are challenged to sift all information through the lens of God’s Word.

Within and beyond the classroom setting, students are offered the opportunity to explore their interests and gifts. Students are challenged to explore one of the five interest and gift pathways currently offered by the school: Ministry, Education, and Public Service, Arts and Communication, STEM and Manufacturing, Business and Entrepreneurship, and Trades and Transportation. Internships take the student’s interest beyond the classroom to the next level and provide the opportunity to develop marketable skills that prepare them for their post-high school experiences.

At Rainier Christian High School, students are guided to seek freedom in Christ and personal fulfillment through understanding one’s individual purpose and role in God’s world. Our high-quality graduates are evidence that our approach to educate and develop the whole person for the glory of God achieves results.
