School Notes:

  • The Christian Faith - Immanuel Lutheran School was established by a community of believers to spread the faith as taught by Holy Scripture to children uninitiated in the faith, and to strengthen the faith of believing children. The Word of God is a constant presence in the school; as a regular and daily feature of the life of the school, prayer, worship, and the proclamation of the Gospel will frame classroom instruction. The school considers the Church of the Unaltered Augsburg Confession to embody the purest expression of the Gospel, and the school always keeps its mission and curriculum consonant with the Church's confession of faith.
  • Academic Instruction - Immanuel Lutheran School's core curriculum provides for instruction in the liberal arts and sciences. This entails, but is not limited to, literature and English composition; foreign languages; world, Church and American history; arithmetic and pre-Algebra; music and fine arts; and the Earth sciences. Each student will be expected to develop an aptitude in these academic areas. The school will work with each student toward achieving mastery in all of these academic areas. One of the greatest treasures of the Lutheran heritage is its emphasis upon a rigorous parochial education; Immanuel Lutheran Church stands within that tradition and seeks to perpetuate it. Immanuel's parish school has always acknowledged both the intrinsic merit and usefulness of the liberal arts and sciences. The study of these subjects reveals the glory of God to the student, while enabling the student to glorify God through knowledge, wisdom, and worship.
  • Christian Character Formation - Immanuel Lutheran School believes that good deportment completes an education. To that end, Immanuel's teachers shall instill in their students an awareness of the duties of Christian citizenship, especially encouraging civility and mercy toward one's neighbor. In addition to requiring its teachers to lead by example, the School uses Scripture and literary works to shape the good moral habits of Immanuel's students.
