Immanuel Christian School is expecting to fill classes for the third year in a row this fall after their tuition decrease 2 years ago. They expect to have over 200 students this fall, up from 90 in the fall of 2015. They are accepting applications for the 2018 - 2019 school year and have set a target limit of no more than 20 students per classroom, and 15 in each of their two Kindergarten classes. Tours will be provided by appointment, on Tuesday night, March 13th from 6:30 to 8 p.m. during an Admissions Open House. Families who are interested in learning more about ICS should contact the school in advance to register for a tour.
Immanuel Christian School leadership is committed to raising financial support so that students aren’t hindered from attending due to finances. “On one hand, $275/month is a steal for private school,” says Administrator, Susan Selby. “On the other hand, it’s still too much. So many families are struggling to put food on the table and don’t have an extra $200 to put toward their children’s education, especially if they have more than one child in school.”
Kelly Knowlden, Head of School, agrees, “The fact that the phone is ringing constantly about enrollment shows us that the community shares the values that Christian education teaches. Families want their children to grow up to be hard working individuals who give back to their community, and who think of others before themselves. Our students are well prepared for college and have the opportunity to pursue whatever career path God has placed before them. We are intentional about investing in the future of Hazleton by educating children and youth with excellent education that prepares them for real life.”
Immanuel Christian School is a 501c(3) organization and serves students in the greater Hazleton area, including Crestwood, Weatherly, Tamaqua, and Berwick school districts. Busing is provided.
