Resources for children


Elim Christian School serves students (ages 3 to 22) who have developmental and/or physical disabilities. There are two main programs: Cross-Categorical Special Education and a specialized autism program. The school is approved by the Illinois State Board of Education.
Elim is a Christian school, and we take seriously our responsibility to teach from a Christian perspective, to proclaim Christ’s love in everything we do, and to equip our students to achieve their highest God-given potential.


Elim Christian School provides individualized educational and therapeutic services for children with a wide variety of developmental disabilities. Students are placed in elementary, middle school, and high school classes based on age and ability in order to provide maximum opportunities for growth.


The autism program is offered for children on the autism spectrum with increased sensory, motor, and communication needs. Providing individualized curriculum, the autism program is committed to providing students with learning experiences that equip them with the tools they need to reach their highest God-given potential.
