Redeemer Classical Academy and the Classical Christian Model

Classical education depends on a three-part process of training the mind. The early years of school are spent in absorbing facts, systematically laying the foundations for advanced study. In the middle grades, students learn to think through arguments. In the high school years, they learn to express themselves. This classical pattern is called the trivium.

Students at Redeemer Classical Academy learn that every subject from Logic, to Literature, to Latin, is comprised of facts that can be ordered in a meaningful way, then concisely and persuasively presented. At Redeemer Classical Academy, we use the foundation of the Classical Model to help your child become a life-long learner and independent thinker. This approach employs age specific learning and content that cut with the grain of the child.

At Redeemer Classical Academy, our emphasis on the spiritual aspect of the child enables them to know what they believe, why they believe it, and how it guides their approach to every aspect of daily life. Our small class sizes create opportunities for students, parents, and teachers to build relationships that offer encouragement, accountability, support, and affirmation.

 

Grammar

The first years of schooling are called the “grammar stage” — not because you spend four years doing English, but because these are the years in which the building blocks for all other learning are laid, just as grammar is the foundation for language.

Logic

The second phase of the classical education, the “Logic Stage,” is a time 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

The final phase of a classical education, the “Rhetoric Stage,” builds on the first two. At this point, the high school student learns to write and speak with force and originality. The student applies the rules of logic and expresses his conclusions concisely.

Redeemer Classical Academy

The central symbol in Redeemer Classical Academy’s logo and crest is a mighty oak.  This image is drawn from Redeemer’s foundational scripture: to grant those that mourn in Zion – to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he may be glorified. They shall build up the ancient ruins; they shall raise up the former devastations; they shall repair the ruin cities, the devastations of many generations, Isaiah 61:3-4. Learn More

 

Parent Testimonial

This powerful testimonial from Redeemer Classical Academy parent, Jeana Traynor, shows the value that our parents see with the Classical Christian model. Many of our parents only became familiar with the Classical Christian model after enrolling their child in Redeemer Classical Academy, and feel that it is the best method for not only educating their child, but also teaching their child how how to learn on their own. The Classical Christian model enables your child to become an independent thinker with a strong basis in their Christian faith.
