Helping you build a Redemptive Education program in your own community

The Center for Redemptive Education can come alongside you and your team to provide you with a customized package of services and resources tailored to your specific needs and desires.
Your educational program package can be custom designed for either a partial week homeschool support program (e.g., Tuesday through Thursday) or for a full-week school program.

Depending on your needs, your customized package can include the services outlined below. 

Our Services

Professional Development and Certification
Consultation
REACH Plus membership

Single-year or multi-year curricula available for:
• Boots & Roots (ages 4-6) – for our popular outdoor education program for young learners.
• Scent of Water (K-8th) – for grades K-1, 2-3, 4-5 and 6-8, for either 3-day/week or 5-day/week programs.

Professional certification by CRE includes a variety of interactive study, resources, books, videos and in-person professional training, leading to:
• Level I certification: Foundations in Redemptive Education Philosophy.
• Level II certification: Foundations in Redemptive Education Praxis.

Teachers submit their responses and observations on a schedule to CRE staff for review. CRE staff dialogue with teachers, copying the community program administrator on communications.
2. Professional development continues with on-site, week-long group teacher preparation. CRE staff lead this one week, in-person training for teachers.
3. Teachers successfully completing the program are awarded Levels I and II Redemptive Education certification.
4. Ongoing professional training also includes the provision of print resources, for use by the community program administrator or teacher/leader in regular teacher meetings or professional development days.

Monthly virtual meetings with CRE educators provide you and your team with individualized, personal consultation to answer your questions, encourage your ideas and evaluate your progress toward goals.
Also included in consultation services is assistance in:
• reviewing and interviewing prospective teachers, with a virtual interview option;
• presentations to current and prospective parents about Redemptive Education.

Testimonial

WOW. Just wow!

"What an awesome week I had getting to know you, Maggie, and getting to see these beautiful schools you’ve created Amy!

"Your teachers are amazing and their passion for redemptive ed is palpable. The kids seemed so natural in this environment and learning just seemed to happen.

"I heard them making connections, using the strategies they have been taught in phonics, working as a team, caring for the younger ones, supporting one another, problem solving, arguing and reaching resolution (sometimes with support!), having fun, and just being kids.

"It was everything that we had envisioned for Joshua Academy…I just didn’t know what it looked like as a working model yet.

"So, THANK YOU for sharing of your time and talents.

"My faith was deepened as a result of our two days together, and your willingness to be vulnerable and share how the Holy Spirit has been working in your life was awesome.
