HomeFeaturesSchools › Best Valley Schools 2024: Classical Christian Education at Redeemer Christian School

The impressive growth of Classical Christian education has been capturing the hearts of parents because the Classical approach has proven to build a stronger foundation for lifelong learning. 


Why do students who are classically educated excel beyond the usual expectations? Why do they develop a love for learning that exceeds social norms? What is the secret to the Classical approach? 

After the Pandemic, many parents became aware of the need for a more effective method of educating their children. They began to question what their children were being taught, behavioral concerns, influences from other students and the impact of social media.

Some felt the challenge from ideologies being taught in the classroom were contrary to their family’s values even as early as kindergarten. 

Pete Hegseth, author of "Battle for the American Mind," has expressed it like this, “The real battlefield isn’t colleges; it’s kindergarten.”

These and other factors have resulted in some parents choosing to homeschool or private school, and some have discovered the Classical approach! 


What is the Classical approach? It is a long tradition of education that has emphasized the seeking after of truth, goodness, and beauty and the study of the liberal arts and the great books. The classical approach teaches students how to learn and how to think.

Using the classical model of education at Redeemer Christian School, we educate students from kindergarten through high school in a biblical framework, so that they are able to think thoroughly, biblically, and maturely in each academic subject, the fine arts, classical language, and in Christian service. Literary classics, chronological study of history, original documents, Latin, informal and formal logic, and rhetoric provide the student's foundation.  Classroom teaching methods complement the student’s natural learning style.  A traditional House System of student governance and field trips enrich the learning experience.

Parents at Redeemer Christian School see their children thrive in an environment of loving, competent and supportive Christian teachers who are classical trained. 


The blessing of living in Arizona is that parents have access to scholarships: Empowerment Scholarship Account (ESA) and Scholarship Tuition Organizations (STO’s). These make a Classical Christian Education at Redeemer Christian School affordable. 

We strongly encourage parents to apply as soon as possible. The earlier a student begins the classical approach, the greater the results will be for both student and parent. Contact us for a tour at https://redeemerchristianschool.org or call 480-962-5003.
