Our mission is to equip children of Christian families with a sound liberal arts education framed within a biblical understanding of God and His creation and to help nurture them in an active commitment to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Let me share a mental snapshot that captures the mission of Rapid City Christian School and that only God could develop. My sources are eye witnesses attending the function for different reasons, but the picture is the same. It was regional National History Day (NHD) competition at a small school 2.5 hours away. Sleepy eyed students boarded a bus in darkness with their projects in tow knowing they would spend most of the day waiting for the few minutes they presented their message of an event/person in history that displayed “Triumph and Tragedy.” Little did one group of students know the greater message that they would share. As I heard it, some of our eighth graders were at a table in the school cafeteria with students from other schools. While I don’t know if there were a connection between students initially or it was a random gathering, I do know that the discussion at the table turned to spiritual things and a few from our group boldly shared the Gospel with their audience. At least one listener prayed to receive Christ and our students came home with a list of students to continue to pray for. These RC Christian students had no idea that when they were given an assignment to create a project for judgment at NHD, they were actually preparing for a divine appointment with people who will face an eternal judgment! Praise God for students who were unafraid to share the Truth and for listeners who were ready to hear Truth!


But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear. 1Peter 3:15
