Thank you for your interest in Immanuel Christian Academy!
Immanuel Christian Academy (ICA) is a ministry of Immanuel Lutheran Church and has been providing quality Christian education for over 168 years!
Our first day school class was taught back in 1852, before the congregation was formed and before the church had been built. The church was constructed in 1858 and since the beginning, the congregation has been cheerfully and faithfully supporting the school, always looking forward to meeting new families and seeing new faces.
The mission of Immanuel Christian Academy is to prepare and equip children spiritually, academically, emotionally, and physically for spirit-filled outreach in the community and the world.
At Immanuel Christian Academy, we envision an environment where teachers and families work together to promote sound values, solid academics and positive public witness of the gospel. Immanuel Christian Academy respects each family as the primary care givers to their children and responsible for their spiritual growth. We support each family by instilling Christian values through the daily instruction of God’s word and Christ-centered action.
Our program begins with a four year old Preschool Program (five days a week) and continues through the Eighth Grade.
Immanuel follows a mixed - grade approach for most classrooms.
We offer before and after school care for full day students. Before school care begins at 7AM, aftercare is available from 3PM - 6PM.
We offer many other school activities, clubs and athletics.
Immanuel Christian Academy is accredited and recognized by the State of Illinois. Our teachers are certified by the Illinois State Board of Education.
We are blessed with an outstanding and highly qualified faculty. Here, forgiveness and love are taught and practiced. Our Christ-centered instruction does make a difference; you will see it manifested through the actions of our students!
Our mission extends to Lutherans and non-Lutherans alike as we seek to know Christ better.
