Welcome to Emmaus Lutheran School


Welcome to the Emmaus Lutheran School website. This website is both for our current families and for our prospective families. Emmaus Lutheran School has existed since 1941,celebrating 75 years of quality education to the San Gabriel Valley community. With qualified teachers, a long-standing and well established academic program, a large and successful alumni, several programs to enhance and promote a well-rounded education, and a beautiful, six plus acre campus, Emmaus gives students a solid spiritual, academic and confident foundation that will help them become life-long learners and successful Christian adults in the 21st Century. Having two children myself, I understand the value of finding the right school for your child. I hope that you find that Emmaus Lutheran will exceed your every expectation. I would love to personally show you around our campus, and have an opportunity to tell you more about our programs. Emmaus Lutheran is a family–large enough to allow students choices, but small enough to know our students and meet our students’ individual academic, social, physical and spiritual needs. Please call me to schedule an appointment or allow me to answer your questions. [email protected] or 626) 289-3664 X105. We have translators available if needed.

Mrs. Kit Hittinger, Principal

Emmaus will once again be hosting

Launch Camp

July 30-August 3, 2018

(week 9 of summer, after Summer Academy and Camp has ended).

This is a separate registration and camp experience, but one that truly will be memorable to your students, grades 1-6.  Palomar Christian Conference Center is the organization that our 7th and 8th graders use each year for their outdoor education week, and everyone always comes back charged and excited from their experience.

Palomar is packing up and heading your way!  Launch Camp will take place at churches near you for elementary age campers.  After 5 days (Monday – Friday), your campers will be energized and ready to live out the gospel!  Our staff provides excellent teaching from the Word, fun camp activities, and an awesome atmosphere where your camper can grow closer to God.

You may register for this trip at any time before the start date, but you will want to secure your spot soon!
