Leaving a Legacy
WE VALUE YOUR PARTNERSHIP
While the Bible makes it clear that the responsibility for raising children rests squarely on parents, it also makes it clear that parents don’t have do this alone. Likewise, Christian education can never be the work of the school by itself. It requires the support of the entire Christian community, including the home, the church, and friends who believe in the work that we are doing.
We have a clear vision and mission – to partner with families to inspire students for lives of learning, godliness and service. But we cannot do it alone.
We invite you to join with us!
The Partnership Fund
The Partnership Fund provides needed annual revenue to bridge the gap between tuition and education costs by supporting the mission-critical expenses. This fund is comprised largely from donations received from Serve-A-Thon, the Partnership annual event and other unrestricted gifts. Gifts of all amounts, both large and small, will continue to provide the opportunity for our talented students to develop the academic skills and spiritual depth they need to make a difference in the world.
Immanuel Bible Church also significantly underwrites the school ministry through the provision of classroom and office space, utilities and custodial support. Without this help and the gifts from parents and friends, tuition rates would be much higher. While tuition provides for the salaries and benefits of all ICS employees, there is a gap between the funds that tuition provides and the actual cost to educate each student. A few of the programs supported by contributions made to the Partnership Fund are:
- Academic, Athletic & Fine Arts Programs
- Employee Salary Enhancements & Professional Development
- Discovery Center & Enrichment Programs
- Designated Giving for Program Enhancements
- Classroom Furnishing and Supplies
- Curriculum, Library, and Instructional Resources

The High School Capital Campaign Fund
When the leadership of Immanuel moved forward in 2018 with the vision of expanding to high school, they did not know where the high school would be located. After much prayer and searching, God opened the door to purchase a four-story commercial building a short distance away from the K-8 campus in Alexandria, VA.
This was a bold move, grounded in faith, to move forward with this historic acquisition. This building would need to undergo a multi-million dollar upgrade to transition this to a state-of-the art educational facility.
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.
Fall 2021 We finished the first floor and graduated our first senior class of three.
Fall 2022 ICHS welcomed 152 students including a full freshman class of 52 eager learners. We have 24 seniors graduating in 2023! This is our first graduating class that has been at ICS since kindergarten.
Fall 2023 We hope to welcome a full freshman class of over 50 students next fall. With your help the LAST floor of the high school will be completed to make room for every rising 9th grader. The fourth floor will include four multifunctional classrooms, a senior cafe, locker commons, and an innovative science lab.
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.

Tuition Assistance Fund
This fund is a resource offered by the School Board of Immanuel Christian School to assist parents who demonstrate a genuine financial need in the pursuit of Christian schooling for their children. The program reflects our deep conviction that Christian education should be available to all children from Christian families, and not solely those from families who can financially afford tuition. Tuition assistance is awarded strictly on the basis of need in a completely confidential process. We do not award any athletic or academic merit scholarships.
Immanuel Christian School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national, or ethnic origin in its administration of financial aid, admissions, or school policies.

The McNally Fund
The McNally Fund for Christian Character-In-Action is designed to focus our attention upon the singular goal of Christian character education. That goal is the imitation of Jesus Christ Himself.
Dan McNally served as the Assistant Administrator at Immanuel Christian School from 1997 until his death from brain cancer in 2005. The McNally Fund is designed to provide scholarships for ICS graduates for programs and training that promote Christian Character-In-Action and is made possible through tax-deductible contributions and has two components:
- The annual McNally Award, presented to one eighth grade graduate who demonstrates exemplary Christian character. This $1,000 scholarship enables the recipient to benefit from training and service opportunities that promote character in action during the high school and college years up to age 22.
- An individual scholarship of up to $100, available to any student who has graduated from ICS, for training and service opportunities that promote character in action during the high school and college years up to age 22. Click to apply for the scholarship.
