On behalf of the Emmanuel school family, I want to extend a warm welcome to you!
Emmanuel exists to reflect the light of Jesus in the community and in cooperation with families, to equip children with the power of God’s Word and academic excellence. For the past 50 years, Emmanuel has had the wonderful privilege of carrying out this mission.
At Emmanuel Lutheran School and Preschool, we understand that choosing your child’s school is one of the most important decisions you'll ever make. Knowing this, Emmanuel provides an impactful education by sharing “Christ, Connection, and Caring” with our students and their families. It’s what makes our school special!
Emmanuel also focuses on educating the whole child—intellectually, physically, spiritually, and socially. Our small class sizes allow our teachers to get to know each child and their needs and strengths. This enables teachers to encourage students to use their talents, gifts, and abilities to serve their Lord and those around them.
We are glad you are here visiting our website. Please do not hesitate to request more information or, even better yet, schedule a tour of our campus. I am proud of our teachers, students, and program of education here at Emmanuel and would love to share more with your family!
God’s blessings today and every day,
