Letter from the Superintendent

Welcome to Immanuel Schools where our mission is, “to equip students to serve God and neighbor, through mind, body and soul based, on a Christ-centered foundation.” At Immanuel, we have the amazing opportunity to share God’s Word each and every day through devotions, Bible class, chapel, and relationships. We have the great privilege of being part of our student’s lives and watching them be transformed by the work of the Holy Spirit.

As I enter my 27th year at Immanuel Schools, I am excited to see what the Lord will do during the 2021-22 school year. Our theme for this year is “Unashamed”. It is based on the verse Romans 1:16 which reads, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile.” As the pressure grows to conform to a rapidly changing world, we realize even more the importance of a Christian education. 

We are thankful for the many opportunities to live out our Christian witness at Immanuel and look forward to partnering with our families to make this a wonderful school year. We know that God has overcome this world by sending his Son to die on the cross for our sins and we are Unashamed to share that message with our students and community.


"Our two children are fairly new to Immanuel Schools. We were overwhelmed with joy in just how welcomed our family was, and the genuine hospitality in helping them settle in. I’m sure I speak for many parents of the public educational world when I express how daunting and scary it is to move your children to another school, without “knowing” one hundred percent if your decision is truly the “right” one. With prayer and opening our hearts to whatever God’s will may be, we made the decision and have had no regrets. It’s refreshingly beautiful to see God being spoken about amongst the students/staff. As a parent, in an unprecedented time where our world is suffering, it’s seeing the small hands folded, heads bowed and hearing your child and their classmates pray for one another and their families with no dismay. Out in the open. This is our hope! These children are the future and it’s schools such as Immanuel that are willing and able to hold onto the truth of God and offering that in a day-to-day routine."
