In August 1954, 76 people came together to form Redeemer Lutheran Church with the intent of also starting a school. Eleven acres of land was purchased on what was then the outskirts of Austin, and Redeemer Lutheran School began in September of 1955. The first called administrator and principal of the school was Mr. Norman Stuemke.
Redeemer Lutheran School first opened for 22 children across 1st - 5th grades. Over time, additional classrooms, grade levels, and programs came as new buildings were added. Currently, Redeemer Lutheran School can host over 525 families starting in our Early Childhood Center through our 8th-grade program.
THE FUTURE OF REDEEMER: EXPANSION AND VISION 2020
As part of the mission to bring children to the love of Jesus Christ, the Redeemer Lutheran School and Church realize a need to service a larger number of families. The City of Austin is growing exponentially, and we are looking forward to expanding in response to the continual growth. Here are a few new and exciting developments that families can anticipate:
NEW MAIN ENTRANCE
EXPANDED EARLY CHILDHOOD CLASSROOMS
PLAYGROUNDS AND FIELDS
We are excited that some of these changes have begun and are just waiting on final approvals from the city of Austin to continue moving forward. For more information, please contact Redeemer Lutheran Church!
