Are you an accredited school?

Redeemer is dually accredited through WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) and NLSA (National Lutheran School Accreditation). We strive to maintain the rigorous guidelines outlined by both organizations and pride ourselves on our multi-year accreditations. Redeemer was recognized as and "exemplary school" by NLSA in 2015.

Do you have a resource department?

We pride ourselves in offering an educational environment in which students with a variety of learning needs can experience success and growth. We have a solid Child Study Team which meets to assess the accommodations, modifications, needs, strengths, and goals of all of our at risk learners. At this time, we are unable to offer a pull-out resource program for students with severe learning needs, however we work with families to accommodate privately hired learning professionals to utilize our facilities to work with their clients (at the expense of the parent). Please do not hesitate to contact our school to discuss your child’s individual educational needs.
