ISJ Athletics Program
The athletic program at ISJ emphasizes Christian values -- during practice and competitions -- for coaches, players, friends, and families. Although athletes practice and compete to the best of their ability, exhibiting faith in Jesus Christ -- and not just winning -- is the most important goal of the season.
The objectives of our athletic programs are as follows:
To ALWAYS put Christ first and "Do all to the glory of God"
To develop strong team spirit and loyalty to the school
To develop a positive attitude for our school, team, coach, and yourself
To encourage and develop in each athlete, self-confidence, responsibility, initiative, and feeling of belonging
Available programs include:
Applications for financial aid are available in the school office. ISJ offers $200 discounts for every child after the first child enrolled. Families may also receive a 3% discount off tuition if tuition is paid in full by a specific date. In addition to the multiple student discount and the discount if tuition is paid in full, ISJ offers a few other options listed below.
Immanuel and St. James Lutheran Church offer tuition discounts for families who are active members at the churches.
The school receives financial gifts from the churches and school supporters which can be used to help families with a financial need. Interested individuals should speak with the principal about any assistance that may be available to them.
