Only families seeking need-based aid should fill it out, and submit it with their application.
Schedule a visit to Redeemer Classical School to observe a classroom, tour the school, and ask questions. Our school is open to visitors at any time, so you can come whenever it is convenient for you. Email the headmaster at email@example.com to get more information about when it would be best for your family to visit. Families may also visit our nature walks on Fridays, usually at 3:30 a.m. That schedule is here.
Applications received by this date will be considered in the first round of acceptance. Families applying for financial aid must also apply by this date.
Admission priority is given in this order: Re-enrolling student, new student from current family, Redeemer Lutheran Church members, first-round applicants, Missouri Synod members, post-April 1 applicants. Within a week, applicants will receive an invitation to schedule a placement meeting, during which parents discuss any enrollment questions and prospective students take a simple evaluation. Applications are online here.
First-round applicants will receive an email by this date stating whether they have been accepted, waitlisted, or declined. To complete enrollment, families will sign the family handbook and return it to the headmaster.
Students who have applied for the upper school will take the entrance exam to determine eligibility.
Financial aid applicants will be informed of any available funds allotted for their family.
April 2 – July
Families may continue to visit and apply to RCS. A placement meeting will be scheduled within two weeks of receiving an application. A letter or email of acceptance, waitlist, or declined admission will be sent within one week after the meeting. We will accept students on a rolling basis based on openings after the first round of admission.
What Happens After You Apply
Once we receive your application and the nonrefundable $30 application fee, we will call you within one week to schedule an interview. All prospective students and their parents must attend. At it, families are welcome to ask questions and relay thoughts about their child’s needs. The headmaster will discuss Redeemer’s distinct atmosphere, expectations, and culture to ensure a mutual fit. We will administer a short (15- to 30-minute) placement test to the prospective student(s), and talk families through our Parent Handbook. It contains information about where to purchase uniforms, classroom supply lists, the academic calendar, discipline policies, etc.
If accepted, the $30 application fee will be applied to the school year’s tuition, and parents required to sign consent forms, file immunization and birth records, and sign our school’s parent handbook, which includes faith commitments and general policies. We will then eagerly await our school year together, beginning with an orientation picnic in August.
Redeemer Classical School will not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national or ethnic origin in its admission policies, grants scholarships, athletic, or other school-sponsored programs. We respect and love all people as bearers of God’s own precious image (Genesis 1:27).
