Redeemer Lutheran School goes above and beyond the 3 Rs. Besides our excellent academics, Redeemer provides the necessary balance of arts and enrichment to address the whole child. We teach about another “r” word: relationship—specifically about a personal relationship with Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, and then how that relationship affects our relationships with others. The essence of discipleship is learning to become more and more like Jesus in our faith journey. The mission statement of Redeemer Church and School is “making disciples who make disciples of Jesus Christ.” We get to do that through the vehicle of the subjects taught in our school as discipleship is also woven throughout our curriculum. Redeemer Lutheran School offers an enriched academic curriculum, with specialized teachers:The art program incorporates art history with all art mediums, including but not limited to painting, drawing, paper machete, clay etc.The computer lab continually reviews keyboard skills, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, graphics and the Internet. Hands-on projects integrate computer instruction with language arts, math, science, social studies and art.The music program provides group music instruction each week in all classes. In addition small group instrumental music lessons are available. The violin and cello are featured for K through grade six.
