Students at Redeemer Christian School exist as God’s image bearers. They are social, academic, physical, creative, and emotional beings. As image bearers they require care and attention to grow into the men and women to whom God has called them. A Redeemer education reflects each of the areas of growth in both content and the process. Our philosophy of curriculum summarizes the RCS approach:
Redeemer Christian School aims to prepare students to become independent, critical and sound thinkers who are equipped to fulfill their calling and serve their community as followers of Christ. Redeemer teaches from a biblical foundation, with a Reformed emphasis, with every discipline framed by the Gospel. Teachers encourage student creativity and promote learning through enjoyable and appropriately challenging methods. The curriculum is planned and delivered based on a classical understanding of child development and the best practices in contemporary classroom strategies.
Students will engage with Christian as well as non-Christian textbooks throughout their time at Redeemer coming to an understanding that all truth is God’s truth regardless of the source. When a student graduates from Redeemer Christian High School, they will have explored deeply the idea of truth through a rigorous and thoughtful study of the great thinkers and works in the Western cultural tradition and will have been trained in a mode of biblically-integrated thought. Students are trained how to think rather than what to think, thus preparing them to be critically-minded, discerning individuals who are prepared to make a cultural impact for Christ.
