At Redeemer Episcopal Academy, we believe in developing the whole child. Through our Enrichment programs, students are exposed to a variety of programs not offered during the traditional school day including visiting artists, sports activities, group programs, instrument instruction and more. We plan instructional and enrichment activities that address developmental areas beyond the basic intellectual realm.
We regularly feature “mystery readers” and other visitors from the school or larger community. These special guests share stories or demonstrations from their expertise or interests. We also offer field studies that enhance what the students are learning in the classroom. Examples of field studies from the ’07-’08 year include: trips to the public library, a musical performance at the Classic Center in Athens, a visit to the Museum of Natural History in Macon, and a visit to the Rock Eagle Natural History Museum. Older students provided musical selections for the National Day of Prayer service in Eatonton.
In 2007-08 our children presented public performances for Christmas and at the end of the school year. At another pull-down menu, you can find photos from the Spring performance. For the 2008-09 year, we will continue to offer appropriate field studies and will allow our students to participate in more public performances as we have opportunity.
Our after-school program will be enhanced in the 2008-09 year to include opportunities for private lessons in different musical areas. We will also begin an organized sports program with qualified volunteers to teach basic sports skills.
