Why Choose Emmanuel-Faith?
A Ministry of Emmanuel and Faith Lutheran Churches
Emmanuel and Faith Lutheran Churches of York, Nebraska operate our school, founded in 1957, for the purpose of aiding parents in following the Bible directive - "Bring up your children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." (Ephesians 6:4b KJV). The home is, and always should be, the chief agency for the Christian training of the child. A Christian Day School does not relieve parents of this task. All activities of the school day are permeated with God's Word and Christian guidance and leadership.
As part of our Faith-based education, students worship together on Wednesday mornings at chapel. Each month we have an opportunity to serve others with our Chapel offerings and donate them to various missions including Operation Christmas Child, Living Water Rescue Mission, and Camp Luther, to name a few.
Starting in 1st grade, students have weekly or bi-weekly memory work, engraining the Word of God in their hearts.
Confirmation classes are taught during the school day starting in 7th Grade. Students who have been baptized have the option to be confirmed at Emmanuel or Faith Lutheran Church.
Tuition scholarships available based on financial need and tuition discounts for Emmanuel and Faith Church members, siblings and church workers. Tuition payments are collected through FACTS with options for convenient online payment plans.
Federal Hot Lunch Program
Emmanuel-Faith participates in the Federal Hot Lunch program, providing students with an excellent salad bar that includes fresh fruits and veggies daily, including many gluten-free options. Families may qualify or apply for free and reduced lunch prices.
E-F has a certificate of approval from the Nebraska Department of Education. Reading, Math, Language, Science, Social Studies, Music and Physical Education are a part of every student's daily routine.
Public School Partnership
Emmanuel-Faith has a working partnership with York Public Schools for students with special education needs. Busing to the Elementary or Middle School is an option for students with IEPs who need extra help.
We work with the York Public Transportation Department to provide bus service to families to get their children to and from school.
Students in grades K-5 visit our Computer Lab, updated in 2019, several times per week. The Middle School students have a 1:1 Chromebook ratio.
Our students have a Christmas Program every year. A Spring Operetta or Dinner Theater is performed by the K-2, 3-5 or 6-8 students every year on a rotating basis.
There are Volleyball and Basketball teams for 5th - 8th Graders as well as the opportunity for 7th & 8th Graders to join Cross Country, Football, Wrestling and Track with York Middle School.
The students at Emmanuel-Faith are blessed to be able to participate in many special activities; Girls on the Run, Yearbook Staff, Student Leadership Team, Quiz Bowl Team and Community Science Expo and Spelling Contests.
