Immanuel Lutheran College (Hong Kong)

Immanuel Lutheran College is an aided secondary school in Hong Kong since 1983.


The antecedent of Immanuel Lutheran College was Immanuel Lutheran English Middle School which was run inside a private mansion in Kwun Tong.

In 1978, it was a caput school and before long, it became an aided school. The transition was completed in 1982.

Due to the limitation of the school building, the South Asian Lutheran Evangelical Mission was advised by the Education Department to phase out the Immanuel Lutheran English middle School and instead start a new school in the New Territories. Eventually, Immanuel Lutheran College was established in 1983.

In the first year, the ILC had only Secondary 1 and Secondary 4 but it gradually became a school with all levels from Secondary 1 to Secondary 7.

From 1996 summer to the fall of 1997, a large scale school improvement construction project had been carried out to put up a new wing at the main entrance. The project provided more classrooms for academic and extra-circular activities and better working conditions for teaching staff.

In order to meet up Information Technology, an ITC network with Intranet connection and broadband Internet connection has been developed.

There are now two Multimedia Language Centres, two Computer Rooms, one Multimedia Production Centre, and one Multimedia Studio in the school.
