Laurel Hall students received faith-education through a Biblically based curriculum that is integrated into the school day.
Elementary classes use Witness, which is a curriculum that introduces Bible stories from both the New and Old Testaments that engages learners in an age appropriate way. Teachers open each school day with devotions in the classroom.
Middle school students attend religion classes weekly with sixth grade focusing on the Old Testament, seventh grade studying the New Testament and eight grade students learning about what it means to live as a Christian in the world today.
All students attend chapel each Friday morning, led by the Youth and Family Pastor of Emmanuel; filled with music provided by student praise teams, prayer and messages of faith and hope. Parents are invited to join our students for chapel. Elementary classes prepare a chapel program each year that allows them to share a message to the school. Monthly Bible memory verses help students to claim the Bible as their own.

Then our mouths were filled with laughter and our tongues sang for joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.”
And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
The voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
