Educating the whole child in a holy way since 1896
Welcome to admissions! If you are visiting our page, you are probably looking for a school for an important child in your life. You have come to the right place!
A couple phrases we often use about ourselves are “teaching the whole child in a holy way since 1896” and “where your child feels like our family.” Both are very true and descriptive of the environment you will find for your child at Immanuel. We strive to provide an atmosphere that encourages children to think and explore who God made them to be, supported by a loving staff.
Many children come in 2 day preschool and stay through 8th grade giving us the opportunity to have them with us for 10 years. During that time we get to know them really well. Other students come to us in later years for a variety of reasons. Some of those reasons are they need a change from their bigger public school, to escape bullying situations or because their parents desire a Christian based perspective on education and more. Whatever the reason, they soon assimilate into our student body and feel at home.
We are proud to be Lutheran and the rich history that goes with the name but welcome those who affiliate themselves with other churches or no church at all. A small percentage of our students are Lutheran but all benefit from a Christ-centered education. Daily prayer, scripture memorization and weekly chapel services help us work beside parents to cultivate values in their children toward becoming responsible, considerate adults.

The Admissions process is this:
- Testing for those in kindergarten through eighth grade. This can be scheduled the day of the tour or sometime after the tour. (Preschoolers are accepted upon application providing there is room in the class.)
- Respond to an email we will send you inviting you to enroll. During the enrollment process you will apply for in-house financial aid (if needed) and set up a payment plan. (Those who are applying for a scholarship through EdChoice will do a paper application which can be obtained in the school office.)
I came to Immanuel in the spring of 2000 after working many years at my children’s public school district . The principal at Immanuel was a former colleague of mine and invited me to apply. I was intrigued at the thought of working at a Christian school but didn’t know what to expect.
I hadn’t been at Immanuel long before I started seeing my job as a ministry. I began having so many opportunities to influence the lives of children and families by getting to know them, praying with them and finding ways to meet their needs. I was very thankful when we began to actively pursue a scholarship program because this provided tools I was lacking to help families afford a Christian education for their child when they didn’t have the funds in their budget.
So many friendships with parents and kids have grown out of my time at Immanuel. I love nothing more than to hear from former students about their lives. I love when they visit me or when I’m invited to high school and college graduations. I love when they bring their children to be enrolled as students remembering Immanuel as a good place where they were loved.
Our school has doubled in size in the last seven years and our scholarship program along with it. This year we met that need by splitting the roles of admissions counselor and secretary. I am so grateful to have that added time to really delve into the needs of families and help them discover ways to pay for their child’s tuition.
I am excited to see how God will use my new office. I have already enjoyed the chance to provide families with a private place to meet, get to know them as individuals, discuss financial concerns, answer questions, and pray with them.
It is an exciting time at Immanuel as we are growing and becoming better! I hope your child can come be a part of our family!
