Financial Aid

At Immanuel Lutheran School, we strongly believe that Christian education is not a commodity. It’s a ministry. It’s a commitment. It’s a connection–a connection of your child’s needs, your family philosophy and our philosophy. That’s why at ILS, the first and most important consideration is what is best educationally for your child. All other considerations are secondary.

As a ministry to Christian families, it is our desire that no family who is seeking a Christ-centered education be denied due to a lack of financial resources. Money IS important, and tuition is an investment in the life of your child. That’s why Immanuel Lutheran has one of the most robust needs-based financial aid programs in our area to assist families who demonstrate a financial need through our FACTS process. FACTS is a highly confidential online, third-party vendor. Its goal is to assist in determining a financial need for our current and new families. Our Admissions Specialist will be glad to share all the details and answer any questions you have about tuition and financial aid. Our goal is that money will not stand in the way for qualified families.

Immanuel Lutheran gives up to $75,000 in needs-based financial aid each year to qualifying families.
