Elim Christian School

  • At Elim, we seek to move beyond the notions that the world continues to hold about persons with disabilities.
  • Life at Elim stands in contrast to the world's view.
  • Through its four major program areas on its main campus and in 15 discovery locations, over 300 servants work each day to bring 800 persons with disabilities beyond their potential to become the living testimonies God created them to be.
  • Elim Christian Services is based on the conviction that the Bible is the infallible Word of God that provides a Christian world and life view that gives purpose, definition, and context to Elim's ministry to children and adults with disabilities.
  • Empowered by this vision, Elim Christian Services recognizes its obligation to provide those with disabilities a Christian education and training in vocational and life skills that will equip them to achieve their highest God-given potential.

Our son, Jeff, spent 5 years at Elim. Sadly, he passed away a few months ago, but to the end of his days he spoke with love about his days at Elim. He found his faith there. Little League, hockey, swimming to round out the first class curriculum don't forget the senior prom. Those were among the happiest days of his life fulfilled as a valued person who just happened to have a disability. Thank you so much for what you continue to do. He carried Elim with him all the days of his life. What a blessing.
