Divine Redeemer is the best decision we have ever made for our children. We've seen such growth academically and spiritually. Our children love the school. Even with changes being made with covid-19, this school has gone above and beyond to offer the best experience in person as well as online. When we went online in March our teachers sent videos of them teaching and offered engaging assignments. I'm sure their work was increased, but we appreciated the extra effort to make home learning successful.

Divine Redeemer is a great school for our five kids! We are a military family who moved here last year from out of state, and we were immediately welcomed into the school community like we had been there for years. The faculty is amazing, the academics challenging, and there are tons of athletic and extracurricular opportunities in which to get involved. I love that my kids are challenged daily to live their Catholic faith at DR!

My son and daughter both attended DR right from the start. DR championed faith, challenging academics and extracurricular programs while providing a warm, welcoming environment that fostered a small-town community feel. My daughter is in her second year of college--I have no doubt her time at DR prepared her to excel in her college years and think critically about what she wants from her career.

My daughter has been a student at Divine Redeemer for 3 years now and have been consistently impressed not only with the quality of education, but also with the warm, family like atmosphere of the school. It's more than a school, it's a community of faith.

If you live outside the United States, choosing an American private school can be a confusing process. Here is an overview of the process.
Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
