Immanuel Lutheran School is an active mission of Immanuel Lutheran Church which exists to help its members grow in personal faith through the Holy Spirit and to share the love of God through the Gospel of Christ.
In Deuteronomy 6:6-7 God’s Word reads, “These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children.” Parents are given the responsibility of providing a Christian education for their children. Immanuel is here to assist and to supplement, but not to take the parents’ place. In order to be of help to the parents Immanuel Lutheran Church established Immanuel Lutheran School.
The mission of Immanuel Lutheran School is to provide a Christian environment so as to educate and develop the mind, body, and soul of each child, enabling them to be disciples of Jesus Christ in this sinful world.
Immanuel Lutheran School is a caring and loving Christian learning community where a high standard of academics challenges each student to personal excellence and by planting and nourishing the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ, inspires families to daily walk with Jesus.
Immanuel Lutheran School is an accredited school of the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. ILS is fully accredited by both the State of Missouri Nonpublic School Accrediting Association and the National Lutheran School Accreditation Program.
