Redeemer Lutheran School

Redeemer Lutheran School seeks to offer a Christian education to as many pupils as possible.
We admit students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally made available to students at the school. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of our educational policies, admissions policies, and other school administered programs. Although we follow this policy there are certain priorities we follow in admitting students to the school family.
The mission of Redeemer Lutheran School is to teach children the Gospel of Jesus Christ in truth and purity according to the Holy Scriptures, which tells us to make disciples of all nations.
Authority in Redeemer Lutheran School is based in the Holy Scriptures as understood in the Law and the Gospel.
It is the Gospel which is the motivating force.
The Law will show the Christian his shortcomings, give him a goal to strive for, and show him direction.
