Creative Curriculum, Robust Enrichment Opportunities

Our Mission in Action

Educating Children through an Experiential, Process-based Program to Nurture Curious, Confident learners

Experiential and process-based learning is a method of instruction that offers students the opportunity to learn by doing. By engaging students in hands-on experiences and reflection, they are better able to connect knowledge learned in the classroom to the outside world.

Special Subject Areas

Redeemer offers a robust curriculum that integrates special areas of study with classroom learning. Highlighting the experience, our program is student-centered and process-driven. Investigation, collaboration, creation, inquisitiveness, discovery, and questioning are fundamental to our daily routines. Students create, manipulate, and journey to places outside the classroom walls. Our program builds cultural awareness, contributing to our students’ understanding of themselves, the community in which they live, and the larger world around them.

Faith-based Community

Our mission to build an inclusive and equitable community is central to the Episcopal faith. Once a week our elementary school students attend a class instructed by our Day School Chaplain, Stories of Faith, where they make meaning through story, wonder, and play. We also gather as a community for special chapel services to reflect on our role in making the world a better place. While all religions and denominations are welcome and embraced at Redeemer, the Episcopal faith is central to our program.

After School Enrichment Classes

Redeemer Parish Day School offers afterschool enrichment classes over the course of the year. Options this year have included Sketches & Skits, Super Chef, and Painters Studio. The enrichment classes allow students to gain new skills while enjoying the company and collaboration of their peers in their own class as well as other grades.

Integrated Curriculum

Project Highlight: 2nd Grade Architecture Unit

Written By: Wendy Craig, Art & Science Teacher

This year, the second grade studied Asian American culture in social studies. Looking to integrate their homeroom curriculum into our science and art program, I discovered several prominent Asian American architects. Learning about these architects and creating projects inspired by their work was a wonderful opportunity for the students to design in three dimensions. This theme dovetailed nicely with our physics unit in science.

We learned about I.M. Pei’s famous glass pyramid entrance to the Louvre. Using graph paper and rulers, we carefully measured and plotted lines to make our own 3D pyramids. Next, we moved on to Disney architect Wing Tao Chao. Inspired by his fantastical designs, the students created their own buildings from recycled materials. This project took on a life of its own. Led by the students’ enthusiasm, we spent several class periods planning, building and painting. We soon had a city’s worth of structures! This made for an amazing tabletop display that could be enjoyed by the whole school. To round out our city, we studied the sculpture gardens of Noguhi, and the students added model magic sculptures to our street. The students designed Googie style signs for their buildings after learning about Helen Liu Fong and her futuristic Jetson type creations.

We also learned about different structural supports such as arches, domes, columns and beams. We used our bodies to replicate these supports, then built them with blocks, LEGO bricks, and magna-tiles. We learned how to measure the length, width, and height of our room and surroundings, then used these measurements to draw them to scale. Watching the excitement and engagement of the students as they were given free reign to build, design, and collaborate was an amazing experience.

The students’ ability to work independently and openness to trying new things – sometimes failing, but having the resilience to try again, is a culmination of their years of work and play at Redeemer.
