Redeemer Christian High School

Now Accepting Applications for September 2015

bandAre you a Christian parent trying to teach your children that God is the centre of everything? Are you trying to faithfully expose your children to things that will draw them to Jesus Christ and an eternal relationship with Him?  Consider Redeemer Christian High School—a grades 9 through 12 school whose mission is to challenge students to develop disciplined minds, hearts and bodies according to the full measure of Jesus Christ. 

"Being able to bring questions to school about the nature of justice, of good and evil, about life's purpose and meaning, forgiveness and redemption, and of hope and integrity, goes to the heart of what learning is all about.  Important too, is having a community around our daughter who shares similar questions.  Understanding the centrality of a God who cares about human beings and the world is integral to advancing the well-being of the next generation."  B & T Clemenger, parents

Redeemer is now accepting applications for September 2015 enrollment.  Please email our Director of Communications and Admissions for more information, or if you would like a school tour.

Redeemer grad receives Ontario Young Volunteer Medal

palmer awardRedeemer is proud to have one of our school's graduates, Robbie Palmer, receive an Ontario Young Volunteer Medal for cofounding a home for street children in Uganda. Lieutenant Governor Elizabeth Dowdeswell presented the medal to Palmer and seven other volunteers at a ceremony at Queen’s Park in Toronto on Monday, April 13, for their work with charities and non-profit organizations.
 
Redeemer nominated Palmer, a 2010 graduate, for his work with Kwagala Ministries (www.kwagalaministries.com), an organization he helped set up to reach out to homeless children in Jinja, Uganda. “Our goal is give vulnerable children and children on the streets a home and opportunity to mend old or build new relationships with their families again when possible,” said Palmer, who started the boys’ home in January 2013 along with a Congolese man, Raoul Mugosa. Kwagala means “love” in the local Uganda language.
 
They have taken in a dozen children who had lived and slept on the street, one of them as young as seven years old. Kwagala feeds, clothes and educates the boys and seeks reunification with families where there are families. “Seeing a child back with his family in a loving supportive way is the ultimate goal,” Palmer said.
 
Redeemer students Skype regularly with individual boys at Kwagala. They took an active role this year and last year in raising a substantial portion of the funds needed for the home. On April 10-11, 2015, fundraising students stayed at Redeemer overnight to mark what has been dubbed the Ugandan Mile, where they metaphorically walk a mile in the shoes of their brothers in Uganda. “We are honoured and proud to partner with Kwagala, and to have developed a close relationship with the boys half a world away,” said Redeemer Principal Chuck Schoenmaker.
