At the helm of every great school is a solid academic program. For the past fifty years, Immanuel Christian School has had the privilege of offering a quality academic program that has equipped and prepared thousands of students.
Immanuel Christian School was founded in 1969 with the idea that a school offering a Biblical foundation and an outstanding curriculum would provide families better options when looking for a school. The ABEKA Curriculum was utilized solely for 2yr. olds to the primary grade levels and is still in use in the primary and elementary programs for certain subjects.
Through the years, we have utilized and implemented other curricula; such as BJU, Purposeful Design, Summit, Positive Action, and curriculum developed by the teachers. For example, in grades 1st-12th, the above-mentioned curriculum is in use, but many teachers implement various strategies using objectives from state and national standards and benchmarks. Year after year, our student's test scores range in the 70th-90th percentile. In the 1st-7th grades, we utilize the TerraNova test on a yearly basis which shows our student's performance against national and state standards. 8th-12th grades utilize the PSAT, ACT, SAT, ASVAB tests to determine their academic standard for college readiness and college entrance purposes.
Our academic focus has changed throughout the years in order to become a 21st Century school. Each core classroom has technology capacity with interactive Mimeo boards, document cameras, and projectors. We have focused on STEM and STEAM and it has taken our school to another level. We are in our second year of being a CISCO Networking Academy. Our 8th -12th graders have the option of enrolling in the program and graduating with multiple certifications. Thus, raising the bar to aspire in another field of academia.
In the near future, we will have a STEM room devoted to all grade levels in the school community. We provide Dual Credit and a College Prep class for our juniors and seniors. Our 9th-12th graders all have a Chromebook to utilize with all academics, which aids them in completing classwork through Google Classroom and IXL Math. Also, our PK-8th grades have the use of carts with Chrome books which can be used in the classroom for core subjects.
Our goal at Immanuel Christian School is to provide a challenging academic program where students are prepared for college, a future in the profession of their choice, and a foundational grasp to the idea that every thought and idea builds on another one- beginning with a strong academic program.
