A Great Education Starts Now
When we started teaching children...
- The US was made up of 30 states.
- Los Angeles had less than 2,000 people.
- The New York Times didn't exist.
- Abraham Lincoln was a lawyer in Illinois.
Immanuel School is a new private Christian school in Taylor from one of the largest and best-rated school systems in the country. Our schools enroll tens of thousands of students from early childhood all the way up to advanced degrees at our private colleges. We've been educating children and adults for over 160 years.
We seek to comply with state standards, but as a private school we are not limited by them. We have our own rigorous standards for our teachers and classrooms. According to a study by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), Lutheran students performed equal to or better than students at other private schools, and significantly higher than public school students.
Lutheran schools are the best places to give your child an excellent education, and Immanuel School has access to the teachers, experience, and resources that make Lutheran schools so good.
A Values-Based Education for a Better Future
"What do you want to be when you grow up?" Children are frequently asked that question. An excellent academic education means that your child has more options when it comes to choosing a career. But more than that, a Christian, values-based education gives your child a safe and positive learning environment now, and provides a foundation for a stable and successful life in any career. Building character is an essential part of the education at Immanuel School. Our goal is to help not just our students but their whole families to grow spiritually.
Immanuel School is opening soon with plans for 4 year old kindergarten, kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade. We're starting small, but we have big plans for the years ahead. Follow us on Facebook to stay up to date.
4-year-old Kindergarten that Works for You
We will have an early Kindergarten program for children age 4. This is not a babysitting service or a daycare. It is an educational program, and will be staffed by a certified, professional teacher with a degree in education and a love for teaching children. Little children's brains are too eager to learn to let that opportunity pass.
Our structured 4K education program will run Monday - Friday, 8:30 - 11:30. But that's not all. We are also offering unstructured afternoons (nap, guided play, etc.) optionally, at no extra charge, to the students enrolled with us. Do you work? Do you have afternoon classes? Do you have an appointment? Do you just want some time to yourself? All you'll have to do is let the teacher know. You can make use of the afternoons as often or as little as you like.
Top-Notch Kindergarten, First, and Second Grade
Our low student-teacher ratio will ensure that your child will receive all the personal attention he or she needs. Our teacher will be certified both by the state of Arizona and by our own certification system. Our school isn't for everyone. It's only for those who really care about education and want their children to succeed in school and in life.
As a parent with children in elementary school, you will have access to financial support from the state of Arizona. Arizona values private schools enough that it has established two different ways of supporting families who attend private schools. One way is through tax-creditable donations. For that, Immanuel School is working with ACSTO and School Choice Arizona. The other method is through Empowerment Scholarship Accounts.
Flexible tuition payments
The registration and tuition fees total will be $6,000, or 10 monthly payments of $600. We will offer some grants to reduce this amount, and the Arizona tax credit has the potential to greatly reduce it for kindergarten, first, and second grade (even up to the full amount). For more information on the Arizona tax credit visit the websites of our partners: ACSTO and School Choice Arizona.
On April 7, 2017 a new bill was signed into law that expands eligibility for Empowerment Scholarship Accounts (ESAs).* There are a number of factors that go into determining the exact amount that an ESA is worth (including more for low-income families and for children with learning disabilities). However, parents will be able to receive a significant amount of assistance by getting into this program. For the 2018-2019 school year, these accounts are available to Kindergarten (4 and 5 year old), First Grade, and Second Grade.
We plan to use an online tuition management system to make billing simple and easy.
*This bill is currently on hold until the November 2018 ballot. For more information, click here.
