The mission of Redwood Christian Schools is to provide a Christ-centered education which is able to equip students for daily living and eternal life.
Because God is central and has made Himself known through revelation, education must create an awareness of God's manifestations.
We believe that education is learning to see things as God sees them and to think God's thoughts after Him.
We believe that all curricula content is related to God and the revelation of God becomes the heart of the curricula.
The most important agent in this revelation is the Holy Spirit.
We believe that education is the process of directing human development toward godliness in character and action.
In this process, the Christian school is an extension of both the home and the church, the two institutions to which Scripture gives the responsibility of education.
We recognize that the most effective education necessitates a Christian teacher and a Christian student.
