Immanuel Lutheran Church & School School Visitor Information

Immanuel Lutheran School

Immanuel prepares children to both compete and build community. We are fully accredited by the National Lutheran School Accreditation as well as the National Federation of Non-Public Schools. A sizable percentage of the past valedictorians at Washington High School have been graduates of our school. We welcome you to visit our school and talk with Nick or the teachers about enrolling your child in our preschool, prekindergarten, kindergarten or any of the eight grades.

Mr. Nick Hopfensperger serves as principal at Immanuel Lutheran School. He helps teachers and parents prepare their children academically, socially, and spiritually for living out their faith in their family and in the secular world.

Our current school families can access FastDirect, the secure school administration software, by clicking on the link above. FastDirect is an online program that allows the school office to track tuition payments, student grades, daily attendance, and lunch count. It also provides a simplified way for ILS families to track their child’s lunch accounts, view tuition payments that are due, and visit the sports calendar.

Apple Butter Cook Quickly Approaching!

Save the dates of September 23 – 26 to assist with our annual Apple Butter Cook. We are looking for school families, congregation members, and other interested individuals to volunteer with the set-up, cutting and coring of apples, the cooking and stirring of apples, and the clean-up afterward.  Families are able to sign-up in person at the school office or can also sign up online by clicking here!  We are excited for another year of enjoyable and rewording work while getting to know other families at Immanuel!



The theme for the 2015-2016 school year is, “Shine”, based on Philippians 2:14-15. In this scripture, we hear the encouragement to “do all things without grumbling or disputing, that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world.” This scripture verse and theme reminds us to “shine as lights in the world” and helps us all share Christ's love by serving those around us.
