Admissions Process Guide
Thank you for your interest in Immanuel Lutheran School!  It is our pleasure to help you choose the absolute best education for your child and to address all of your questions and concerns.  This step by step guide is designed to walk you through the entire admissions process, from start to finish.

Step 2 - Applying
After the tour, if you would like to apply, Click Here for an enrollment application form and return it to the school office. This application is simply your request to learn more with no obligation to enroll your child at this point.  Click Here to view our enrollment application guide.
Step 3 - Review
Your application will be reviewed and we will contact you regarding additional information or testing that that may be needed. This varies by grade but includes such things as current report card, standardized test scores (such as TCAPS), an ILS entrance test, and anything else you feel is necessary to help us understand your child’s needs.

Step 4 - Acceptance
We will review the information and talk with you about your child’s education. If we are in agreement that Immanuel Lutheran School is the best place for your child, we will complete the enrollment process. At that point, a $300 registration fee (non-refundable) is needed to hold your child's place in the classroom.

Step 5 - Final Steps
Your child is now enrolled! There will be some supplemental paperwork (immunization records, permanent record from child’s previous school, tuition agreement form, etc…) to gather. Our school office manager, Sally Bruno, will help you obtain all of the items needed to begin in school. Please feel free to call during school hours at 901-388-0205 for more information or if you have any questions.
How long does the admissions process take? 
The admissions process timeline varies depending upon each step listed above but the registration fee holds your child's place as classrooms fill up so there's no risk.  Our entire staff will be  available during the entire process to help you in any way so please do not hesitate to contact us for any reason.
