Founded in 1950, Holy Redeemer is a K-8 Catholic parish school dedicated to the development of the whole child. We continue today to be an integral part of a vibrant community that comprises Holy Redeemer Parish. Our mission is to foster the development of all children on the spiritual, academic, emotional, and physical level. We encourage each child to reach their potential by utilizing their own individual gifts and uniqueness. Diversity, in the form of learning style or other differences, is embraced and highlighted in the context of the richness of God’s gifts. In our students, we seek to develop Gospel values and practices, a sense of responsibility for Christian service, and an awareness of mutual interdependence with the constantly evolving levels of their community. Within this framework of faith-guided choices, we promote intellectual curiosity and the drive for excellence. We believe that these qualities will empower our students to face the challenges of the future.
We believe that:
Every student is a child of God to be respected by all in our community.
Every child has the capacity to learn.
Children learn at different rates and in different ways.
Teaching to individual learning styles will provide an opportunity for every child to reach his/her potential.
Every student has unique gifts which we should nurture.
Students have a right to a safe and caring environment in which to learn.
Education is the shared responsibility of the parents, teachers, and parish.
Durable self-esteem will lead to self-confidence and success in life.
A strong academic foundation contributes to the development of life-long learners.
An education grounded in the Gospel of Jesus Christ provides students with a strong sense of responsibility towards themselves, others, and the world.
The creative use of technology in all areas is necessary to prepare our students to be fruitful contributors to our nation’s future.
Students with a strong foundation in academics and spirituality represent the future of our Church and nation. – Adopted in June 2007
