Kindergarten Through Grade 8 Academics

In accordance with Emmanuel Lutheran School’s primary mission, the Christian religion is the foundation for all academic instruction. In the classroom, every lesson begins with a brief devotion, followed by teaching in Christian doctrine and Bible study. In younger classes, religious teaching consists of studying Bible stories and applying them to everyday life, as well as memorization of brief Bible passages. 

A systematic study of Christian theory is explored in the upper classes. In addition to religious instruction, students will receive teaching in reading, English literature, mathematics, social studies, science, computer education, fine arts, physical education, and health.
