For the 2021 school year, there are 10 top private schools in Illinois belonging to the Evangelical Lutheran Education Association (ELEA), serving 1,725 students.
The American Lutheran Education Association was formed in 1961 by joining the Christian Day School Association from the eastern United States with the Lutheran Teachers Association from the western part of the country. ELEA has remained a stable association throughout decades of change in leadership and structure, and looks to the future with a vision for strengthening newly utilized Regions, providing more opportunities for training and conferencing, helping more schools and early childhood centers participate in our Accreditation processes, and increased services and advocacy for members.
