Elim Christian School serves students ages 3 to 22 (all students “age out” of the program at the end of the school year in which they turned 22) who have developmental and/or physical disabilities. The primary eligibility must be one of the following: intellectual disability, orthopedic impairment, specific learning disability, or other health impairment, developmental delay, autism, traumatic brain injury, or multiple disabilities.

Most of the children who attend our school are referred and placed here by the student’s home school district—in these cases the district pays the student’s tuition and transportation costs. As a Christian school, Elim is privileged to partner with area churches to provide a Christian special education for our covenant children, and accepts private placement and tuition payments from interested families.
