Our History and the Future

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.
