Rehoboth Christian School is an ethnically and economically diverse day school for children, primarily from the Native-American Community.

Rehoboth educates with Rehobothmulticulturalism as a backdrop, serving approximately 70% Native American students, 20% Anglo students and 10% students of Hispanic descent and other ethnic minorities.

A Rehoboth education helps students develop confidence, competence, and compassion. We are committed to building students up not only intellectually, but also spiritually and emotionally.

Any volunteer is welcome at Rehoboth while school is in session. The generous gifts of time, talent and love from our volunteers greatly benefit the staff and the children of Rehoboth Christian School.
