Asheville is the largest city in western North Carolina, and it’s continuing to grow. Located in Buncombe County, between the French Broad and Swannanoa rivers, Asheville is a charming, eccentric community with a 200-year-old history that offers beautiful neighborhoods, a vibrant downtown, and scenic parks.
The mountain city is best known for the Blue Ridge Mountains, America's largest home, the Biltmore Estate, and is surrounded by prestigious educational institutions.
In fact, North Carolina is well-known for its institutions and academic success. Even though we are fortunate to have access to outstanding education, parents are searching for alternatives to traditional public elementary schools. Emmanuel Lutheran School offers an opportunity for children to be spiritually enriched in an academic environment.
At Emmanuel Lutheran in Asheville, we believe in building a culture of humility and continuous learning while also recognizing what is best for our children, families, and community. We view our students as contributing members of the community and devote our care to the development of their minds, future, and spirit.
Our high-quality facilities and staff are committed to providing an ideal environment for our students to learn and grow.
We provide a full day of academics, as well as extracurricular activities, and the Bible, by combining our curriculum with the philosophy of our experienced educators in core reading and arithmetic. Students will work throughout the year to establish the groundwork for their educational path, including social, mental, physical, and emotional growth.
Emmanuel Lutheran School recognizes the importance of developing a child’s moral character. We approach each student with love, forgiveness, and acceptance. Our students benefit from small class sizes and inquiry-based learning, which provides them a head start on a promising education. They also will receive a tailored learning experience based on their specific needs.
For over 60 years, we have been providing elementary students with the tools they need to reach their full potential in a Christ-centered learning environment. Each day, our elementary students look forward to a brief devotion, examination, and Bible study.
They discover Bible stories and how they touch and apply to everyday life. In addition to religious instruction, students are required by the state of North Carolina to receive instruction in all secular subjects of study.
Emmanuel Lutheran School has grown into one of North Carolina’s most effective institutions, delivering high-quality education to students of all ages. Our students develop into assertive leaders in high school and college through biblical studies, adult role modeling, peer mentoring, and parental leadership.
