As a parish school, we receive most of our financial support from the members of Immanuel Lutheran Church. Those members young and old, have been convinced of the value of a strong Christian school for over 150 years, and they have been willing to sacrifice to maintain their school.

Community Member Tuition

Tuition is required of parents who are not members of Immanuel Lutheran Church. Rates of tuition are established by the Board of Christian Education. Payments are received in nine installments (August 15, September 1, October 1, November 1, December 1, January 1, February 1, March 1, April 1, and May 1.)

Parents who have recently become members of Immanuel Lutheran Church, but who were members and financial supporters of another congregation during all or a portion of the previous calendar year may request through our School Principal a partial or full Member Assessment (tuition) exemption. Valid written documentation (record of giving) from the other congregation will be required before an assessment exemption can be considered.

Written requests for grants in aid because of financial hardship must be presented to the school office. Families do this through completion of forms provided by a third party company.

Deposit for New Students (K-8)

A $50 deposit is required for each new family enrolling children at the K-8 levels. This deposit is required even if a child has previously been enrolled at Immanuel Lutheran Preschool. The deposit is non-refundable unless space limitations prevent us from enrolling the child in school.

Preschool Tuition

Preschool tuition is payable in monthly installments, with the first payment due at the time of enrollment, and the remaining eight payments due at the first of each month, beginning October 1.
NOTE: The initial payment is non-refundable unless space limitations prevent us from enrolling the child in Preschool.
