Holy Redeemer Catholic School is a regional Archdiocesan school, located in Johns Creek, Georgia, a vibrant northern suburb of Atlanta.  Holy Redeemer has made a significant impact on the community.  Its reputation speaks of a rigorous academic program paralleled with a strong religious education.  A comprehensive curriculum is provided in mathematics, science, language arts, foreign language, social studies, social development, fine arts and physical education. 


The physical plant was constructed in 1999 and offers many of the “best practice” features, which are essential for education. Our computers, which are fully networked, provide students the opportunity to experience the benefits of technology incorporated into their academic curriculum.  The classrooms are arranged according to the developmental ability of the child (K-2, 3-5, 6-8)and open into a large “family center.”  These centers provide a dynamic space for multiple groups of children to gather for liturgy, group instruction, special presentations, projects and other similar activities.

Our media center contains more than 20,000 volumes in its circulation collection.  The reference collection includes both print and electronic media.  In addition, our closed-circuit television system and video production studio offer student “news anchors” a creative way to deliver the daily announcements to the school community.


The Archdiocese of Atlanta holds District Accreditation through AdvancEd. All Archdiocesan schools, including Holy Redeemer, are thereby accredited through this agency. The school holds membership in the National Catholic Education Association, Atlanta Area Association of Independent Schools, Georgia Independent School Association, National Association of Secondary School Principals and National Middle School Association.   All teachers are certified with over 50% holding advanced degrees and an average of 17 years experience.

The school day begins at 7:55 A.M. and ends at 3:10 P.M. Children may arrive as early as 7:00 A.M. and are under the supervision of a staff member in the cafeteria until they are dismissed to their classroom.  Our food service offers an optional hot lunch program or students may choose to bring their own lunch.

Students will be considered for admission to Holy Redeemer School on the desire to embrace and support the philosophy of Catholic education, academic ability, and conduct. We encourage our applicants to visit our website at www.hrcatholicschool.org. The website is changed regularly with continual updates of activities that are going on at school.  This is a great way for you to learn about Holy Redeemer.
