Social and Emotional Learning
Omega Middle School is a holistic private school based in Asheville, North Carolina.
Omega Middle School consists of grades 6-8 as part of Rainbow Community School. We have a unique educational model that develops the whole child.
The Seven Domains approach in Omega Middle School teaches to the whole student, thereby facilitating their unique cognitive, emotional, and spiritual transformation from childhood into young adulthood.
These courageous and compassionate young changemakers aspire to live in a world that is spiritually connected, environmentally sustainable, and socially just.
We meet this quest with a rigorous individualized curriculum, ample opportunities for self-expression, and loving relationships within a resilient community. Welcome to education at its best.
We’d love for you to come visit our school and see for yourself our holistic educational model in action.

Feedback from Omega and Rainbow families.
“We moved to Asheville from Florida because of Rainbow Mountain School. We knew it was the best fit for our child’s growth mentally and spiritually, and the school provided so much peace of mind as we made the transition 9 years ago.”
We chose Rainbow for our two sons because we wanted a nurturing academic environment that also viewed the child as a citizen of the world. Rainbow’s teachers are fantastic! They are empathetic, informed, and they work hard to recognize a child’s learning style and personalize the teaching forum.
My son has been at Rainbow since preschool, and is graduating 8th grade tomorrow. The moment we walked in the door for preschool orientation, our family became a part of the greater school family. Since then, we have strengthened those bonds through countless gatherings and by volunteering at school events. Over the years the teachers at Rainbow have encouraged and inspired my son by their own passion for life-long learning. Their well thought out lessons are aimed at teaching the whole child, and my son has blossomed from that approach. The community at Rainbow Community School has loved my son into the amazing young man with limitless potential he is today, and I will be forever grateful for that.
