CLEF’s Commitment to Quality Lutheran Education

A Lutheran education prepares students to maximize their potential by educating the whole person in a safe, nurturing environment. Christian values form the foundation of school community life and provide meaningful context for a rigorous course of study. With an emphasis on service learning, Lutheran schools in Chicago provide students opportunities to live out Christ’s teachings, while giving back to their communities. Students who experience the Lutheran approach to education gain the tools to become compassionate, empowered, and principled adults.
