Graduating students have been accepted into these Lutheran, Catholic & Public High Schools.
As a Christ-centered school, Redeemer Lutheran School recognizes that “the glory of God is man fully alive,” and seeks to inspire and empower every student to discover his or her identity and purpose in Christ and His creation in order to effect change in the world now and for eternity.
Successful graduates will possess:
1. Sound reason and sound faith
We expect students to think clearly and listen carefully with discernment and understanding. We expect students to realize a unified Christian world view with Scripture as the measure of all Truth. We expect students to exhibit the wisdom to recognize complex issues and to follow the consequences of ideas. We desire that our students have the mind of Christ9, the hands of a joy – filled servant, a heart for the lost, and the courage to seek to dissuade those who are stumbling toward destruction.
2. Virtue and mature character
Acting responsibly is the outcome of a mature character, which includes heart - obedience (rather than mere rule - following), good manners, honorable relationships, self-control, and Christian leadership. We help students rightly order their affections (the definition of virtue) through the study of great literature and the Bible. We expect students to be socially graceful and spiritually gracious. Above all else, we teach students to live in accordance with the Bible–as though they were in the presence of God at all times —that they may be equipped to act out the spirit of the law, not just the letter of the law.
3. Well-rounded competence
We believe the education of children is essential to serving passionately and accomplishing the Great Commission: to go out and make disciples of all nations. Educated people have competence in a variety of areas including the humanities, the sciences, and the arts. We expect our graduates to be well-rounded and understanding in all the scholastic disciplines in light of God and His truth.
4. Literacy with broad exposure to books
Educated people are well-read and able to discuss and relate to central works of literature, science, art, architecture, and music. We expect our graduates to be well-read in the important literature and ideas of Christian theology and the West. We recognize that real standards of truth, goodness, and beauty exist; through the written word we can engage in the ongoing conversation concerning the great ideas. These ideas are “basic and indispensable to understanding ourselves, our society, and the world in which we live.”
5. An established aesthetic
In conjunction with sound reason and faith, virtue, maturity, a command of language, well-rounded competency, and a broad literary base, educated people develop a recognition of and appreciation for the beautiful, formed as they are exposed to great aesthetic masterpieces, particularly at a young age. We expose our students to the great artists to develop their aesthetic and cultural appreciation.
We measure the success of our Mission Statement by looking at the finished product, and we are continually evaluating the effectiveness of our programs and practices to ensure our graduates are equipped. With the end in mind of seeking to inspire our students to think clearly, act responsibly, and serve passionately, we build our program upon the following
•We place Christian truth at the center of all learning.•We graduate thinking, compassionate, and articulate students whose chief end is to glorify God.•We challenge students with a rigorous educational experience.•We prepare students to shape culture and society.•We are a close community that encourages Christian living.•We support the standards and values of Christian families.
