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, and has been at its current site since 1950. 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. or 626) 289-3664 X105. We have translators available if needed.
Mrs. Kit Hittinger, Principal
