Building a community of lifelong learners
Our mission is to embrace the pursuit of excellence both inside and outside the classroom.
We believe in a collaboration between teachers, students, and parents. Our vision is to inspire young minds in their search for knowledge, while engaging parents as supportive partners in their child’s educational journey. To achieve our vision, we pride ourselves on helping our students achieve academic success using a personalized approach to teaching and learning that ensures each child is engaged, supported, and challenged.
Learning is easier when you have an excellent teacher. That's why most of our educators have achieved an advanced degree in their field. Our faculty are passionate about the subjects they teach and bring this enthusiasm into their lessons. We are a school that prides itself on being responsive to the concerns and needs of the parents/care givers and students.
We seek to provide effective education in a small classroom setting for students desiring education in the non-traditional "hybrid" model. We meet in a classroom environment two or three days per week for focused instructional periods. The remainder of the education for each class is expected to be accomplished at home and/or additional online supplemental instruction.
Students will have plenty of freedom to pursue creative projects that interest them personally, in addition to stretching their skills into new areas through in-class writing workshops. Whether you are interested in short fiction, writing a novel, poetry, songwriting, or screenplay, here is the opportunity to explore creative thinking, find and hone ideas, and learn more about the art of using words well. The students will study examples of good writing and workshop different elements of creative processes, based on students' choices for their projects.
See a bug and know what it is, how it lives, where it fits into the ecosystem. This class aims to introduce students to the biology, identification, capture, preservation, and display of insects. The class is appropriate for Middle School or High School Credit. Mr. Ouellette is a professional scientist with nine years of entomology experience. Classes are taught through Zoom and includes at least one collection field trip.
What is a hero? Why do we create them, build them up, and then tear them down? This course takes an in-depth look at the human and cultural motivation for aspiring to be a hero (or Superhero), including their virtues, attributes, and value to society.
This class focuses on the fundamentals of programming using Java as a base. The lessons taught during this class are relevant to many other programming languages in widespread use and will prepare students to move to the next level of education or engage with small software projects on their own! The teacher, Aubrey Bailey, is a freelance software developer, who is eager to share his knowledge with the next generation of software experts.
Understanding personal finance encourages students to properly manage their finances. This class will cover all the essential topics necessary to become a financially capable student. Topics include banking, credit, budgeting, investing, career, and more. By the end of this class, students will thoroughly understand personal finance topics and be prepared to handle the financial responsibilities that exist after graduation.
We are pleased to offer American Sign Language (ASL), Spanish, and Russian. Learning a second language helps the student not only gain a deeper insight and cultural understanding of the language but improves memory, concentration, and problem-solving skills.
The Church of Our Redeemer has embarked on a journey of planting a community garden. A community garden helps reduce negative environmental impacts while providing numerous health benefits such as access to fresh food, increased physical activity, and improved mental health. Many of these topics will be explored in our Environmental Science class taught by Mr. Bailey. Through the support of Home Depot and volunteers, the church has been able to plant fruit trees and various flowers. Looking towards the future, the church plans on adding more flowers, tees, a walk path, and much more. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Christy Carson (770-712-6784) or
Father Beau (770-378-4658).
