Mission and Tradition of Education
The purpose of Emmanuel Lutheran School is to share the good news of Jesus Christ by providing a high quality, Christ-centered education.
A Tradition of Education
Emmanuel Lutheran School is a partner school with six other Lutheran grade schools in Hawaii and over 2,345 Lutheran elementary and secondary schools throughout the United States.
Emmanuel Lutheran School is licensed by the Hawaii Council of Private Schools. A number of our teachers are graduates from Lutheran universities and all of our teachers hold a minimum of a Bachelor’s Degree in Education.
Emmanuel Lutheran School is committed to serving you and your children. This commitment is motivated by a desire to serve our Lord through our individual ministries. It is important that you are aware of this desire to serve and of the high level of our commitment, because we also need your commitment, support, encouragement, and prayers.
Emmanuel Lutheran School is a part of the mission and ministry of Emmanuel Lutheran Church. The congregation is therefore responsible, through the Board of Education, for the operation of our school. All matters of school policy require approval by the Board of Education.
Emmanuel Lutheran Church has been serving Maui since 1967. The congregation added the preschool program in 1972 and the grade school program in 1978. The name “Emmanuel,” which our congregation has chosen for itself, means “God is with us.” We believe that He is with us and that He will bless the labors of our hands and hearts.
Emmanuel Lutheran School reflects the ethnic diversity that is found in Hawaii. Emmanuel also has students from a variety of different religious backgrounds. And though we are a Lutheran School sponsored by a Lutheran Church, we are not here to serve only Lutherans. Emmanuel wishes to provide a Christian education to all families who wish a quality Christian education for their children.
