Preparing Students for Life

Redeemer Classical Academy partners with parents to form students to live well.

Welcome to Redeemer! Since our founding in 2013, Redeemer Classical Academy has been committed to providing an education that forms and shapes students as independent thinkers, life-long learners, and men and women who flourish in life. Our students are taught to seek truth, love goodness, and cultivate beauty. In partnership with parents, we provide students with a solid foundation for a fruitful life.

Nurturing
Community

Education is fostered in a community. At Redeemer, students are given an environment uniquely suited to spiritual and academic growth. Students benefit from intentionally small class sizes and teachers who strive to be mentors, while parents are equipped with a partnership with the school and a network of other like-minded families for support.

Academic
Excellence

Redeemer follows the classical method of education, one that has been shaping and forming wise and eloquent men and women for millennia. The classical method “cuts with the grain” of how God designed human beings to develop and capitalizes on the God-given strengths of children at each stage of their development. This potent approach not only forms students who love learning but also students who are prepared for challenges and poised for success.

Christ-Centered
Curriculum

We believe that God is the creator of all things. Therefore, all true knowledge, and any truth that is discovered, ultimately points back to Him. Redeemer instructs all disciplines with the understanding that Christ is the one “in whom all things hold together” (Col. 1:17). Therefore, our curriculum is grounded in Holy Scripture, and we seek to understand and to teach how all knowledge is integrated.

ACADEMICS

K–12 CULTURE

Classical Christian schools use the children’s God-given strengths at each stage of growth to help them learn.

GRAMMAR SCHOOL

The first years of schooling are the years in which the building blocks for all other learning are laid, just as grammar is the foundation for language.

LOGIC SCHOOL

The second phase is when the child begins to pay attention to cause and effect, to the relationships between different fields of knowledge relate, to the way facts fit together into a logical framework.

RHETORIC SCHOOL

The final phase builds on the first two. The high school student learns to write and speak with force and originality, applying the rules of logic to express conclusions concisely.

“We are not reading books merely to check off a list or to be able to say we have read them. We are reading to grow as persons, to know more that we may understand more, and ultimately, it is to be hoped, to act according to our greater wisdom.”
Karen Glass
WHY STUDY LATIN?

Latin is the most efficient way to learn English grammar.

MUSIC AND SINGING

At Redeemer, we strive to teach our students to discern Beauty, to seek it out, and to use it as a reliable guidepost to what is good and true. Thus, to study music classically is to study Beauty. Music is comprised of important principles of Beauty: form, proportion, and motion. Whether the process is through listening, creating, or musical reinforcement of content in other subject areas, the exploration of Beauty is the goal.

CLUBS

Grades six through 12 are invited to enrich their skills and knowledge with others who may share an interest, hobby or activity. Whether it be competition chess or rock climbing, your child can find a club to enjoy if they choose. Several are available before or after school to try out. Or they can find a sponsor and start something new!

WHAT PARENTS SAY

"I think Redeemer Classical offers something that's tough to find at other places. When you think about classical education you wonder what the three stages are for. We don't wonder that because we've been instructed by some great teachers, we've done our reading, we've done our research, and we're excited about the fact that there are three stages of learning. Classical education in a nutshell is learning how to learn. Once a student learns how to learn they can be successful at anything, because the world continues to change. As the world changes if all they know how to do is regurgitate knowledge based on what somebody asks them to learn for a test, it's not possible for them to grow and learn and change with the world. For them to be the shakers and movers they have to learn to change and grow with what's around them at all times." —Terry Jolley
