A Christian Environment

We offer a rigorous learning program supported by a strong curriculum, augmented with today’s technology. We focus not only on academic learning, but also on social development, encouraging each child to reach their potential, within a Christian environment of love and caring.
We model the values presented in the Bible and encourage healthy, rewarding relationships with fellow students and the adults in their lives.”
Learning with Christ
We strive to spiritually and academically nurture the children entrusted to us. Our students and their parents are part of the Immanuel family. Our dedication to Christian values and learning ensures that all children know they are special.
Each child is a gift from God. Our teachers recognize that we teach children, not subjects. All students are unique in their interests and abilities. Through a combination of proven teaching methods, established curricula, and new technology—all surrounded by Christian love and understanding—our teachers help all children reach their full potential as responsible, effective citizens for life.
As a Lutheran School, our teachers daily share the Gospel in their classrooms. We model the values presented in the Bible and encourage healthy, rewarding relationships with fellow students and the adults in their lives. We strive to build a sense of community where everyone is valued for their contributions.
We rely on parents to partner with us to better understand the unique qualities of their children and help them to learn and grow both in our school building and at home. The Immanuel community extends beyond our walls.
What better way to learn about the world that God made than to experience it first-hand. From Early Childhood through Eighth Grade, our teachers incorporate the outdoors into their learning activities. From a nature walk to look at the beauty of fall leaves to an exploration of rainbows and the unique nature of bubbles, our children learn to appreciate God’s creation.
Sixth graders visit Wal-Camp in Kingston, Illinois for a week of outdoor education. Several classes a day explore ecology, river and pond life, plants and animals. They learn survival skills and how to cook outdoors. The colors and patterns in nature are discussed as the group creates paint prints using natural items. There’s even a night walk to learn about the stars. This week also helps the students learn more about each other and appreciate people different than themselves.
