Private Elementary Education in West Asheville

At Emmanuel Lutheran School, we are driven by four guiding principles that make us unique:

  1. Integrating God’s Word – ELS’s faculty and staff strive to lead by example, believing that by demonstrating Christ-like love, our students will grow up more confident and eager to do the same.
  2. Building Meaningful Relationships – Just as fostering a life-long relationship with Christ is at the core of our values, families also discover meaningful bonds throughout their ELS experience with teachers, other families, and students.
  3. Discovering the Students – Whether a student is a natural leader or prefers a supporting role, we believe that every child is created by God and has a purpose for his or her life.
  4. Refining the Experience – At ELS, we perform ongoing self-evaluation and encourage input from our students and families, which allows us to better serve our student body.

Another aspect that sets us apart is the implantation of STEAM 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. We are the only Christian parochial school in western North Carolina offering this innovative curriculum.
