Purpose, History, & Mission
Redeemer School exists for the glory of God as a ministry to the believing families of Redeemer Presbyterian Church, its affiliated churches, and the surrounding community.
Redeemer School has a rich heritage. It was borne out of the vision, passion and prayer of individuals from the Redeemer Church family. Responding to God’s call to start a covenant Christian school, a small group of parents and educators began meeting in 1992 to pray and make plans to start a school modeled after Perimeter Christian School in Atlanta, Georgia. Employing a literature based curriculum highly informed by the philosophies of Charlotte Mason, Redeemer School opened its doors in September of 1995 with one kindergarten and one first grade class.
Redeemer School has grown to include Transitional Kindergarten (TK) through eighth grade and offers a variety of enrichment classes including Music, Art, Foreign language, PE, Speech, Computer, and Health. Redeemer School is accredited by Christian Schools International and is a member of ChildLight Schools, an association of Charlotte Mason schools committed to collegiality through sharing curriculum resources and ideas as well as annual professional development opportunities.
Redeemer School is a community of like-minded families committed to nurturing students in their relationship with Jesus Christ and engaging them in the life-long pursuit of wisdom and knowledge as they discover, embrace and integrate God’s truth in all of life.
The mission of Redeemer School is founded on the core values of the primacy of wisdom of Christ, the benefits of a covenant community, approaching children as created in the image of God, the use of biblical integration, and the teaching and modeling of servant leadership. Out of these values flow the unique educational distinctives for which Redeemer School is known, including half-day TK-2 classes, enrichment days, living curriculum, unique teaching methods, and discipline built on shepherding a child’s heart.
