Private Meeting & Tour
The principal meets with family, introduces them to the child's potential classroom teacher, give a tour of the campus, and discuss possible enrollment.
In our attempt to accommodate the needs of all our students, parents are expected to openly discuss any special needs and concerns regarding their child.
After your family has reviewed all informational materials and is in agreement with school guidelines as stated in the parent handbook, a pre-registration form shall be completed and returned to the school office accompanied by the following:
Applicant’s birth certificate
Current immunization records
Previous standardized test results
Most recent report card
Official custody agreement (if applicable)
Final admission to Redeemer Lutheran School is determined by the principal and school board. A notice of admission or denial shall be made in writing to the applicant in a timely manner.
Upon acceptance, parents or guardians must consent to all governing policies and procedures established by Redeemer Lutheran School.
The family must also complete the school fee payment plan, and agree to attend the Bible Information Course during the
first year of enrollment.
Redeemer Lutheran School is open to all member families of Redeemer Lutheran Church and families from the community who desire a Christian education for their children. Specific enrollment requirements include:
Our decision to send our children to Redeemer is based on dedication and commitment of the teachers, staff, and pastor to instill a love of Jesus and nurture our children's hearts toward following Him.
Kope Family, Redeemer Parents
Parents must be willing to have their child instructed in the doctrines of the Bible as taught by Redeemer Lutheran School.
While Redeemer is a private school, it is better understood as a Christian school that is operated by Redeemer Lutheran Church.
Children entering Kindergarten must be five years of age on or before September 1.
Parents - Bible Information Class
All new non-member parents are required to attend the Adult Bible Information Class within the first year of enrollment. Classes are offered at multiple times, and on a variety of days of the week throughout the year.
This course acquaints participants with the teachings of Holy Scripture as taught and believed by Redeemer Lutheran Church. Parents will thus be informed of the instruction given their children in school and may better reinforce this instruction in the home.
Worship is central to the life of Christians. Students at Redeemer have the opportunity to participate in the worship life at Redeemer and share their faith through music during Redeemer's worship on Sundays. Each classroom of students serves as a choir. All students are expected to sing in their respective choirs throughout the school year and participate in the Children’s Christmas Service.
Children are expected to participate in Redeemer's religion curriculum and adhere to the values, mission, teachings, and beliefs of our church.
The religion curriculum includes daily devotions and prayer, weekly chapel services, Bible History lessons, Catechism classes, and the memorization of Bible verses, hymns, and parts of the Lutheran Catechism.
