Redwood Christian School

As a school, we believe that God is an eternal personal being of absolute knowledge, power, goodness and righteousness. He is ultimate reality, the source and foundation of all reality and truth. We believe that Jesus Christ, God’s only Son, is creator, designer and preserver of all things. In Him the entire universe has its origin, energy, control and final destiny.

Redwood Christian Schools was founded in 1970 as an interdenominational home mission work. From the first year with 69 students, we have grown to a school serving over 750 students in grades K-12, including over 60 children in the Academic Assistance Program, a program designed to assist children with specific learning disabilities and other challenges that prevent them from functioning in our regular program.

Located in the East Bay, 25 miles southeast of San Francisco, we currently have two campuses: Redwood Christian Elementary in Castro Valley, and Redwood Christian Middle School & High School in San Lorenzo. We have maintained our identity through the years as an interdenominational Christ-centered school that now serves over 600 families, representing more than 130 churches, from over 30 Christian denominations.

This home mission work continues to be alive in Jesus Christ as we pursue the vision the Lord gave to our founders. In 1971, the founding superintendent of Redwood Christian Schools, Mr. Gus Enderlin, wrote in our first yearbook: “The major goal of the school is to produce a boy or girl who has the mind of Christ . . . The child must first be ‘in Christ.’ . . . Therefore, the salvation of each student is of prime importance.

Christ’s ambition was to do the will of His Father. This is the chief spiritual goal of the school: to produce the boy or girl who wants to please his heavenly Father by being directly in the center of His will; a boy or girl who is daily walking, by faith, in the Holy Spirit.” This continues to be the primary focus of this ministry.
