Immanuel Lutheran School welcomes students of any race, color and ethnic or national origin. Members of Immanuel Lutheran Church, returning students, and siblings of current students are given priority in the admission process. Admission is subject to Immanuel being able to meet the educational needs of the student.
Interested families should fill out the Inquiry form below to receive more information, or contact the school office at (630) 406-0157. A tour can be scheduled at a convenient time to see the school, check out the classrooms, and learn more about what Immanuel has to offer students from Preschool through Grade 8.
From there, New Student Registration is a 2-Step process:
- Step 1: Completed online application with non-refundable application fee. (Note: This step does not hold a seat in class.)
- Step 2 (after application is reviewed and approved by the admissions team): Completed online enrollment packet, original birth certificate, medical records, tuition payment auto-withdrawal authorization, and the non-refundable enrollment processing fee.
As part of the registration process, new students in Grades 1-8, and mid-year kindergarten transfers, are required to complete an assessment with one of our trained staff members. This is not an entrance exam—it is a way for Immanuel’s staff to start gauging a student’s areas of strength and/or need. Please also submit two years of report cards and standardized test scores, as available, from previous school(s).
Shadow days/half-days are also strongly recommended for potential new students. It is a time for the child to get a taste of a school-day here at Immanuel and an ideal time for scheduling the required assessment.
The Family Mentor (Ohana) Program helps introduce new parents and students to Immanuel Lutheran School. The program is intended to give each incoming family a point of contact for questions and information to make them as comfortable and knowledgeable as possible as they transition to a new school. To help make your experience of transitioning to Immanuel as smooth as possible, you will be contacted by an existing family, or Mentor Family, who can answer your general questions. There are families who have been at Immanuel for a few years, which means they have been here long enough to become familiar, but still remember those first-year uncertainties. They are willing to share their knowledge and make new parents and their children feel welcome. Mentor families are asked to call new families on a regular basis to touch base, answer questions that arise, and invite you to attend our school events throughout the year. You might make new, lifelong friends, and of course, you will share in the warmth of the Immanuel family. If you have questions regarding our new Ohana Program, please contact the school office at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 630.406.0157.
Communication You will register for FACTS Family Portal when completing the enrollment process. Student grades, homework, account billing and more are all housed and communicated through the Family Portal. This is also our base of contact when we text and email families in the event of a weather-related closing or other emergency. Each Friday during the school year, and periodically during the summer, each family will receive Eagle Info, our electronic parent newsletter. In addition, classroom news and special flyers are sent home in preschool backpacks, elementary Friday Folders, and with middle school students as they are received.
