Want Real Choices For Your Child’s Education?

The Illinois INVEST IN KIDS ACT is designed to help you have a CHOICE for the best K-12 school for your child — including IMMANUEL LUTHERAN SCHOOL (K-8)

If your family qualifies for free or reduced lunch (according to federal guidelines), you could qualify for 50, 75 or 100% of necessary tuition and fees to send your child to the private school of your choice.
