The purpose of Immanuel Lutheran High School is to assist parents in providing a Christian education to their children. God directs parents in Proverbs 22:6 to “train a child in the way he should go,” namely, in the Lord’s way. This God-ordained work involves the application of God’s inspired and inerrant Word. Children need the instruction, guidance, discipline, and security that only God’s Word can give. Immanuel Lutheran High School offers this type of education.
God instructs us to bring our children up in the training and instruction of the Lord (Ephesians 6:7). The primary goal of Christian Education at Immanuel is to fulfill God’s instruction to raise our children with Christ-like hearts and well-prepared minds. It is a result of the Holy Spirit working through the hearts of believers to create faith in the redemption that is found only in Christ Jesus. It relies on a wide range of efforts made by a wide range of individuals.
Our grade school goes from Kindergarten to 8th grade. We offer sports, musical opportunities, and other extracurricular activities, all centered on the Word of God.
We pray that the Lord will continue to bless these efforts and continue to bring our young people the many blessings of Christian Education at Immanuel Lutheran School.
In general, Immanuel has two goals for the students entrusted to its care: that they will grow in the knowledge and love of Jesus, their Savior; and that they will also become useful members of society. To accomplish these two goals, all aspects of the individual—soul, mind and body—must be trained.
The first goal mentioned above is reached through the study of God’s Word. Accomplishing the second goal—producing useful members of society—also relies on the use of God’s Word. Since the “fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom,” God’s Word serves as the backdrop for all of our classes and provides us with a purpose for studying all topics. We study biology, mathematics, earth sciences, and physics to gain insight into His creation. In history classes, we learn of God’s all-powerful and abiding hand in the affairs of the world around us. We study language arts to improve our communication skills. The most valuable use of these skills is to share God’s message of peace and promise with others. We consider a Christian education, such as the one offered by Immanuel, to be the most complete and meaningful type of education available.
