Our Admissions Process


REGISTRATION: Please complete the Registration Form for admission and the Transcript Request Form. Please return these forms to Emanuel, along with the $50.00 non-refundable application fee. Please make checks payable to Emanuel Lutheran School. At that time we will schedule an entrance examination.

ENTRANCE EXAMINATION: Each student applying for admission to Emanuel Lutheran must take an entrance examination. We recommend your child spend the day with their prospective class at which time during the day they will be given their entrance exam. The results will be discussed with the teacher and principal shortly thereafter. After said examination, a Parent Interview will be scheduled.

PARENT INTERVIEW: We will schedule a Parent Interview at which time you will meet with the principal. At that time the principal will discuss how Emanuel partners with parents to create a foundation for joyful, successful living for their child.

ACCEPTANCE: When determining a student’s acceptance to Emanuel Lutheran School, careful consideration is given to entrance exam scores and previous school performance. We must be in receipt of your child’s transcripts and records from their previous school.

ENROLLMENT: Once a student has been accepted into Emanuel Lutheran School, a non-refundable registration fee of $200.00 is due to hold the student’s seat. Enrollment is complete with the payment of the registration fee and the successful completion of the current grade level.

TRANSPORTATION: Contact your local school district’s transportation office by April 1st and request bus transportation for your child to Emanuel Lutheran School. If you live 15 miles or less from Emanuel, your district must transport your child, if your request is on time. Most districts have an April 1st deadline for transportation requests for parochial and non-public school students. Please don’t wait; do it today!

Emanuel Lutheran School admits student of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. ELS does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

I couldn’t be happier with the experience my son has received at ELS. He is happy and looks forward to going to school. The class size is nice and small and allows personalized attention for the students. There’s a wonderful family feel between the teachers and students. I would highly recommend this school.
