Welcome to Redeemer Classical School

The educational system called “classical education” was developed over two millennia with the goal of developing young minds to be wise. This proven approach has produced the greatest thinkers, leaders and scientists in Western civilization. At Redeemer we draw on the best of this rich heritage to build the leaders of tomorrow- young men and women with the tools to seek and appreciate the good, the true, and the beautiful.
