Welcome To Immanuel Elementary K-6

Welcome to Immanuel Elementary School where we proudly proclaim Jesus as the center of our education. Our goal is to blend rigorous academic programs with solid Biblical teaching. We value students and relationships and desire to partner with families to educate the whole child – mind, body, and soul. Our dedicated teachers and staff are passionate about speaking truth into student’s lives in order to build a foundation of faith.

On August 16, 2017, we dedicated our new, state-of-the-art elementary facility to the Lord and opened school with an exciting and fresh start. We have seen God’s faithfulness through the “transformation” of our campus and are excited to see how He will use this facility to further His Kingdom. Each morning we gather as a student body to pray and recognize the blessing we have in proclaiming Christ in a school setting. In addition to core subjects, elementary students participation in daily devotions, music, art, physical education, technology, and chapel each week. Immanuel’s unique K-12 campus fosters community and creates a family-focused atmosphere. 

Our theme this year, Be Transformed, is taken from Romans 12:2: “Do not conform to the patterns of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.” In this ever changing world, we count it a privilege to train-up the next generation to fully understand Christ’s transformative love for us.

Elementary students prepare and perform two music programs per year and are also given the opportunity to participate in some high school musical productions.
Our academic program is both rigorous and balanced. We make curriculum decisions based on what is best for creating well-rounded, responsible, and motivated learners. See our curriculum guides for further information on grade-level specifics.
We believe in the importance of teaching our students the meaning of "Serve Beyond Self". Students and staff participate in various service projects throughout the year. An annual "Serve Day" gives Immanuel the opportunity to serve our neighbors and local community, while projects such as "Operation Christmas Child" spread the love of Jesus worldwide.
