IMAGE BEARERS...all people are created in the image of God.

(Genesis 1:26)


Students at ELCA have the privilege of growing up in a richly diverse student population. As you walk our halls, you get a sense of what Heaven will be like as you see students who come from many different racial and cultural backgrounds. In a focused effort to strengthen our diverse culture, we have established a Council on Diversity to discuss critical issues within our school. The council consists of both parents and staff members who meet on a regular basis to discuss ongoing issues and create strategies for future improvement. Our foundational principle is that all people are created in the image of God. As image bearers, we all have great value in the eyes of the Creator and thus we should treat those who are different than us with that mindset.


The word GRACE describes our focus on diversity within the school...

G - gender

R - race

A - age and ability

C - culture

E - economic ability


All of these groups are represented within our school and are recognized within God's word. Our goal is to teach our students that God has created us in His image and for His glory. As students begin to grasp that concept, they are able to respond to one another in a truly Biblical way.
