CLEF’s Network of Lutheran Schools in Chicago

CLEF supports a robust network of 22 private schools — preschools, elementary, middle, and high schools located across the city of Chicago. Our Christian schools are founded on Lutheran values and welcome students of all denominations and faiths. While each school has its own identity, all are staffed by compassionate teachers and administrators dedicated to the success of their children.

A Letter From Dawn Robinson


CLEF’s mission is to provide academic excellence to our students in a Christian environment. Today that can mean at-risk remote learning, in place of classroom instruction and safety. How can we help provide our students and their families with a Christian perspective in the face of despair, anger, racism, and destruction?
