Immanuel Lutheran School reserves the right to place new and returning students in the appropriate instructional level. The age of the student is always considered, but final placement is based on meeting promotional standards, teacher assessment, standardized tests, previous records, placement tests, and the content of the classical Lutheran curriculum. Kindergarten students must be five years old by September 30th of the year in which they will enroll. Entering Jr. Kindergarten students must be four years old by September 30th of the year they will enroll.

Immanuel Lutheran School is not staffed to serve children with severe behavior disorders or learning disabilities. Enrollment is not limited to Lutherans, but matters of faith will be taught exclusively in accord with the Scriptures and the Book of Concord.

Immanuel Lutheran School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. Immanuel Lutheran School does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
