Our Mission
Rainey Institute is dedicated to positive growth for Cleveland’s youth through education and participation in the performing and visual arts.

Our Passion
Rainey Institute is passionate about the power of the arts to meaningfully transform young lives.  We are a community of dedicated teachers, artists, students, parents, board members and volunteers who embrace the arts as a vehicle for nurturing creativity and goodness in young souls.

We recognize potential in all of its forms.  We welcome the child who has no arts background just as readily as the child who has naturally perfect pitch when they sing.  We embrace all learners regardless of where they fall on the continuum of natural artistic ability.

We understand the value that a safe, enriching community-center setting brings the lives of children.

While the arts is our primary focus, we also work hard to ensure we are doing everything we can to support our students.  Nutritious meals/snacks are provided during the afterschool program and during summer camp.  We offer homework help throughout the year and, most importantly, we ensure children have good role-models to interact with each time they visit.

Rainey Institute invests in children as both budding artists and as part of our extended family.  We’d love to have you join our family so call or stop by and see what we have to offer.
