Many people today hold that the purpose of education is to prepare students for future occupational choices and to make an economic impact in society. Although a successful educational program does both of these, if a school system uses only these two standards to justify a strong education program, its educational philosophy falls short.
Proverbs 9:10 states, "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding."
Only through a biblical worldview with Jesus Christ at the center will students receive a complete education.
Reaching and Teaching Every Student
God has gifted every student according to his good pleasure and purpose. At Red Lion our goal is to ensure students are engaged and challenged academically at all times no matter what their achievement level. Throughout their academic career at Red Lion, students receive targeted, differentiated instruction.
Lower School (Preschool through Fifth Grade)
Instructors challenge and reinforce lessons within the context of their homeroom class. Classes are comprised of all levels of students and class lists are created to maximize learning for the overall student student body.
Upper School (Sixth through Twelfth Grade)
Core classes in the Upper School are leveled by ability beginning in sixth grade. Curriculum and textbooks reflect this leveling. Extracurricular courses are not leveled. All courses are considered college preparatory at a minimum and increase in difficulty through honors and Advanced Placement courses. In order for a student to receive placement in honors courses they must obtain an instructor referral and meet achievement test score and report card grade point average requirements.1. College Prep
