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 the influence that culture has on their children. There is a battle for the hearts and minds of our youth and a growing resistance against the truths 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 Immanuel Christian High School. A 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.
The work is not finished, even though the inaugural classes have begun. Please read through the following pages to see your important role in Immanuel Christian High School. 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.
The school and the faculty, it wasn't just about educating, it was about equipping.
[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.
The teachers are very passionate about each child, and you see it in the way they talk [to you] about your child.
The teachers are very passionate about each child, and you see it in the way they talk [to you] about your child. They remember the little things that your child said or did in class, and they are excited to share it with you. When your children do not want to miss a day of school then you know that the teachers are doing something right!
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.
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 no more critical time to reach the hearts and minds of young people than during their formative years.
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.
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.
Parents very much want a partnership. Parents don't want to do this on their own. They're looking for godly role models.
