should my kids go to private schoolThere is so much to love about living in western North Carolina. We are surrounded by the tallest mountains east of the Mississippi River. There are more hiking trails, waterfalls, and acres of virtually untouched wilderness than we could explore in a lifetime. The weather here is perfect. We get all four seasons with brilliant colors in fall and spring. Our restaurants and shopping are the envy of the rest of North Carolina, attracting millions of tourists every year. We have no shortage of pristine parks and greenway trails. Our school systems and healthcare are second to none for a city and region our size. It is the perfect place to raise a family.

Even with excellent public schools, many parents are still searching for alternatives to traditional public education. Should you consider private school for your child? Here are a few reasons we believe your child should attend a Christian school like ELS.

Why Your Child Should Attend Emmanuel Lutheran School in Asheville, NC

Here are a few quick reasons you should send your child to Emmanuel Lutheran School:

  1. Our Mission: Our mission is to prepare children For Today, For Tomorrow, and Forever. That means your child will have opportunities to hear and believe the gospel every day.
  2. Our Faculty: Our faculty is committed to fulfilling our mission. They are exceptionally knowledgeable in their subjects and excellent communicators, but more than that, they are disciple-makers.
  3. Our Academics: We are the only Christian parochial school to offer a STEAM-based curriculum. STEAM is an educational movement that combines science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics to foster critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration by applying all the disciplines together. Our STEAM curriculum begins in kindergarten.
  4. Our Location: Our West Asheville location is convenient to parents and families throughout Buncombe County. Whether you are in North Asheville, Arden, Fletcher, Candler, Canton, Woodfin, Swannanoa, or Weaverville, we are just a short drive from your neighborhood and work.
  5. Our Class Sizes: One of the most significant advantages of private education is class size. Our classrooms have about 40% fewer children than traditional public schools. That allows teachers to provide individual attention and our faculty to make sure classes are clean, sanitary and employ social distancing when necessary.

Should your child go to private school? We believe the answer is a resounding yes! If you are considering private school, the faculty and administration at Emmanuel Lutheran School would love to have a conversation and answer any questions you have.
