Mission

 

Partner with families...

You are the biggest influence on the development of your child. At Immanuel, we feel fortunate that you’ve chosen us to share in the responsibility of that development. We strive to understand each student’s background and needs through ongoing and regular dialog with the student’s parents and family. We believe that establishing strong relationships with both students and their families is essential, and we believe in the power of prayer  to improve and strengthen these relationships.

…to develop…

Education at Immanuel is about the ongoing daily process of teaching our children to be ready for their future. To develop knowledge and skills in a setting that strives for academic excellence. To help students learn about changes in their emotions and to develop their bodies to make use of their God-given abilities. To learn how to communicate  effectively and relate to others and to enourage the development of creative, artistic, and musical skills. Most importantly, it is about growing in their faith in Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. And making that faith deep and personal.

…21st century…

To be successful in the 21st century workplace, our kids will need to develop different skills than those needed in the past. Communication and collaboration skills are essential. Creative skills can help students think outside the box to solve problems or to contribute beauty to the world. In a global community, our kids will need to learn how to relate to and respect people from other cultures. They need to be able to adapt quickly to change, to learn new skills, to forget  unnecessary old skills, and to keep improving the way they do things . And they need to embrace and utilize all types of technology.

…servant-leaders…

As they grow, our kids will use the knowledge and skills they’ve learned at Immanuel and at home to think critically to solve problems and to act decisively to overcome challenges. To be leaders for Christ in a world  that is increasingly hostile to Christians. And to be leaders like Christ, serving humbly and putting the needs of others ahead of their own. To apply biblical principles to life’s challenges, to discern truth, and to know how to deal with ethical and moral challenges.

…with a Christ-centered world view

Christian education is needed now more than ever. Our culture desperately needs leaders with a Christ-centered world view. Without God, there is no basis for ethics or social order. Without God, philosophy struggles with questions like the meaning of life. At Immanuel, we know the meaning of life and we teach it to our students every day. Without God, science cannot answer questions like how life came to exist or why humans have special significance. We are able to teach students that God has a special purpose for each of us, and that he wants us to be with him in heaven for eternity. Without God, even history and math can be distorted. And of course, public schools cannot teach religion. Add it all up…at Immanuel we are teaching students God’s truth so that they can stand up to the false teachings of the world.
