Since 1976, ICS remains committed to our mission—partnering with families to inspire students for purposeful lives of learning, godliness and service.
Currently, Christian parents see firsthand the effects of culture has on their children. There is a battle for the hearts and minds of our youth and a growing resistance against the truth found in God’s Word. Bombarded by conflicting messages from every side, high school and college students of today find it increasingly difficult to fight against the secular pressures from peers, media, and the opinions of influencers inside and outside of the classrooms.
The Opportunity: God has placed on the hearts and minds of the Immanuel Christian School Board and leadership the desire to finish the work He has given us. The next step in this work is completing the campus for Immanuel Christian High School where students experience God’s created World, His written Word, and His work through Jesus. The need is great, and the time is now for Immanuel Christian High School.
Fall 2019 marked the inaugural year of our freshmen and sophomore classes at Immanuel Christian High School. Our goal remains the same, to provide a school known for its foundational faith and accelerated academics. Fulfilling this goal prepares students for college, career, and a life of lasting faith.
Fall 2020 we celebrated the official opening of the new campus. Even in the midst of an unprecedented pandemic, ICHS welcomed sixty-five freshmen, sophomores, and juniors onto our state-of-the-art campus.
The work is not finished. Please consider what your important role in Immanuel Christian High School will be. Together, we will shape, mold, and develop students with a strong foundation of faith and resolve to effectively lead the next generation as we prepare students for a life of learning, godliness, and service.

[When] we started at ICS [we thought], "Boy, this might be a great opportunity for a good education and foundation for the kids." And, it turned out to be so much more. The school and the faculty, it wasn't just about educating, it was about equipping. And, it wasn't just about our kids, it was about all of us.

Our daughter is thriving at school -- it is beautiful to see how much she has grown in confidence, understanding and joy over the past few weeks. One of our primary goals for her education is that she will always have a love for learning, and you all have done much to foster that in her. Thank you!

We need Immanuel Christian High School to be a safe harbor for students, so that they can discuss, debate, explore, make mistakes, overcome, understand why, and to know the truth.
There is [an] urgency to equip students to know what they believe and to know why they believe it. And, that's where Immanuel Christian High School comes into play.
The congregation and leadership of IBC values the power of the Gospel to change lives and influence the culture. There is no more critical time to reach the hearts and minds of young people than during their formative years. The ministry of Immanuel Christian High School provides such an opportunity of educating the mind while shaping the heart with the essential message of the Gospel.
There is no more critical time to reach the hearts and minds of young people than during their formative years.
The ability for [our children] to attend a school where they are safe, where they're nurtured, where they feel like they're learning the truth that we are teaching them at home, is really important.
There are a lot of schools that can give you academics, and there are a lot of schools that can support kids emotionally. But, for us it was combining those two very necessary things with the Christian worldview, and having that reinforced in partnership with our family.
This is what Immanuel Christian High School does, preparing a new generation of young men and women to become culture warriors, rather than culture victims. We train our students to interpret the influences of media and entertainment with a biblical framework so they can resist the current direction of our society, not just with territorial combativeness but with purposeful intent and persuasive insight.

One of the really beautiful things about Immanuel that I still get to benefit from to this day, is that on top of the incredible education that I got, that really did carry me through high school and college, is the family aspect and it's the body of Christ in action.

Immanuel Christian High School models for students and for families, what it looks like to walk out your faith and to care for one another. Parents very much want a partnership. Parents don't want to do this on their own. They're looking for godly role models.

The Finishing The Work campaign will result in a state-of-the-art high school campus, designed and equipped to provide opportunities for students to excel in all areas of development. Immanuel Christian High School is a legacy of excellence for the DC metro while impacting the world for Christ. The crowning achievement of this campaign will be the completion of a redesigned high school building located 5-minutes from our main campus and sits adjacent to Fairfax County parkland.
Phase 1 of the campaign built out floors two and three and included six large classrooms including a science lab, a student commons with a kitchen and lounge, conference rooms, teacher workrooms, a clinic, and a large auditorium in the heart of the building called the Learning Stairs that will be a multi-use space.
Phase 2 of the campaign begins in 2020 with completion estimated for late summer of 2021. This expansion will see the completion of the fourth floor which adds another state-of-the-art science lab, four large classrooms, a commons area adding over 100 lockers for students, a gathering space dedicated to seniors and additional teacher office space. This completion of this floor is critical to providing educational space to support the needs of an ever-expanding student population.
The purchase and construction will total $10 million dollars. We invite you to join with us in this historic opportunity to finish the work that God has placed in the hearts of ICS leadership and parents.
