OUR CORE VALUES
Our highest and most critical commitment is to the Triune God as revealed to mankind through the Holy Scriptures. This commitment is not assumed but serves as the foundation and cornerstone upon which all else is built. Regarding our mission, vision and core values, He is the Alpha and Omega, the Driver of all we do and the reason we exist. (Psalm 118:22,23; John 3:16; 1 Timothy 3:16-17; John 14:6; Revelation 22:12,13)
On this Foundation we claim the Core Values of:
Excellence- We strive to improve, grow, succeed, and lead in every aspect of our school program: academics, athletics, arts, spiritual formation, relationships, personal and corporate virtues. Excellence is not measured simply by the outcome but also through the process. Our staff seeks excellence in everything we attempt, and aims to inspire our students and families to do the same. Thus, we do not simply encourage good grades but homework done diligently. We do not simply desire to win championships but to practice passionately. We do not simply settle for a friendly community but long for a community of deep relationships. In short, we aim for excellence in every facet of our program, in all we attempt as well as in all we accomplish. (Leviticus 19:2; Ecclesiastes 9:10; Philippians 1:6; Philippians 4:8-9)
Grace- As we strive with and for Excellence we remember that we are growing, not grown, learning not learned. As we grow and learn we will experience corporate and personal successes as well as failures. Success will lead us to praise God and rejoice in His good gifts. Failure will remind us of our utter need for Him and of His unmerited love for us. Through Grace we will know both to be God’s kindness and to act out of our gratitude for all He has done, is doing and will do in and through us. (Matthew 11:28-30; Romans 2:4; Ephesians 2:1-9)
Community- Redeemer exists not for itself but for its community. Therefore we strive to be a microcosm of the community we long to see. This means we care for each individual student, staff member, and parent to equip them for their specific role in our school community as well as their role in the greater community. (Jeremiah 29:4-7; John 17:22-23; I Corinthians 12:12-31)
Redeemer Christian School was founded in 1999 as a ministry of Good Shepherd Presbyterian Church (PCA). Our campus home is located on the former equine veterinary clinic of Drs. Bill and Manu Lyall, whose vision that this property would one day host a K-12 Christian school has come to pass. We opened our doors originally serving students through 5th grade. Eventually, middle school was added, and today, we boast a Pre-K through 12th grade program. We will graduate our first senior high school class in May of 2018!
Our School Motto, Christ in All Things, permeates every program at every grade level across our campus. Our staff are dedicated Christ-followers who are experts in their fields. They love Jesus, their children and their subject areas passionately. Redeemer holds dual accreditations through Christian Schools of Florida and Advanced Ed (Southern Association of Colleges and Schools) insuring a proper focus on Biblical integration, academic rigor and best educational practices. We aim to prepare students academically, spiritually, emotionally, socially and physically to serve Christ in their calling over a lifetime.
