Tuition Policy

Tuition Policy
Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church, Farmington

Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. (Proverbs 22:6)

Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church encourages its members to daily and continually lay the foundation of their children’s faith by considering a Lutheran Elementary School education. Immanuel provides tuition support for members whose children are enrolled in schools in fellowship with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS).

1. Eligibility

Communicant members of Immanuel Evangelical Lutheran Church in good standing are eligible. Parents must notify a member of the Council or the pastor of their intent to enroll their child(ren) in a (K-8) Lutheran Elementary School prior to the beginning of the school year. Please contact us regarding intent by email or written request as opposed to a verbal notice.
Non-members who are in the process of becoming members of Immanuel may be eligible to receive these benefits provided they are currently taking instruction to become members or are transferring from another congregation as members in good standing.

2. Tuition and Amount of Support

Tuition is divided into two parts, the first to be covered by the parents of an enrolled child, the second and larger portion to be covered by Immanuel. It is the responsibility of the child’s parents to pay their portion of tuition and other fees to that school in which the child is enrolled. Tuition varies from school to school. Please contact the school to find out the family portion and to arrange payments.
Immanuel asks that parents sending children to a Lutheran Elementary School at minimum pay the same amount for tuition and other fees as a member of that school’s congregation. In addition, parents may be asked to pay any difference in tuition that exceeds the maximum allowance set by Immanuel’s Tuition Policy.
Immanuel understands the financial struggles that people and congregations face in these trying times. We also understand the cost of a Christian education continually rises over time. Immanuel will pay up to 40% over its average cost per child. Averages will be based on tuition from all schools that children of Immanuel are currently attending.

3. Disenrollment/Transfer During School Year

In the event that a family should leave either the Lutheran Elementary School or transfer from Immanuel, tuition will be pro-rated based on the number of days attended. Immanuel can’t assume responsibility for fees or tuition payments that are incurred during disenrollment or transfer. Each family will be responsible for payment of any remaining fees and incurred payments due to disenrollment or transfer.

4. Notice of Enrollment and Submission of Forms

All written requests or emails should be submitted to Immanuel no later than August 15. Please include your child(ren)’s name, grade level, and name of school they will be attending. All requests will be brought to the Church Council for approval.

Please direct any questions or concerns to our pastor or congregation president.

In His name,
Mr. Roger Dobson
Congregation President
