On May 27, 1981, founding owners, Ben and Delores Ward, opened the doors to Children’s Rainbow Day School / Rainbow Christian Academy. It began with a license for 40 children ages 2 to 4 years old, and a big dream.

The school began to grow roots on 1.75 acres of tree-shaded property, one block off of US 1 and Silver Palm Drive in Miami. A lovely and spacious school campus was added in September of 1995. Exactly 10 years later, we welcomed our first middle school students with the purpose of providing continued solid academics along with emphasis on Christian leadership.

More than 30 years after its inception, the Rainbow Christian Academy is now spread over 8 acres. We enjoy a fine reputation in the community with a capacity for more than 350 students.
