Our Philosophy of Education
The philosophy of Redeemer Christian School is based upon the Christian worldview that all truth is God’s truth, and that the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God and the only rule for faith and practice.
God is central in a Christian philosophy of education. God is the Creator, Sustainer, and Sovereign over all things. All truth and knowledge are found in Him. God has revealed Himself through His creation, His Word, providence, and His Son. Apart from these sources, man cannot have true knowledge of the universe, his proper place in the universe, or his relationship to God.
Redeemer Christian School bases its educational approach upon the classical teaching model known as the trivium, which divides the educational life of the child into three stages. Teaching to the trivium emphasizes the student’s natural capacity for certain types of learning at each different stage.
Education at RCS, therefore, seeks to train students utilizing the trivium in the knowledge of God, for service to God and their neighbors, unto the glory and praise of God. The result in this type of education is a difference that we find in common with other classical Christian schools. Check out the classical difference, HERE.
God has given parents the primary responsibility to educate their children (Deuteronomy 6:4-7; Psalm 78:5-8; Proverbs 1:8-9; Ephesians 6:4). RCS is a servant to the home by assisting parents in their covenantal responsibilities to educate their children.
