Experience Evergreen Lutheran High School

Evergreen Lutheran High School serves the Tacoma and Greater Seattle area with Christ-centered and growth-minded education for 9th-12th grade students.

What helps students grow…and thrive?

Historically, schools existed to give students a basic education: math, reading, writing, science, and history. The fine arts were added, as well as extracurriculars like athletics and clubs and the debate team. In more recent years, high schools developed into college-preparatory institutions.

But the more we learn about the needs of our young people, the more we realize that academics and extracurriculars are not enough. Our students need to grow socially and emotionally and spiritually, too. And they need to be challenged and supported individually, with care and concern for their unique needs and gifts.

Evergreen Lutheran High School exists to help each student thrive in ways that go beyond traditional academics by providing a Christian foundation, uncommon connection, and an Evergreen mindset.

Christ-centered. Growth-minded.

A Christian Foundation.

Evergreen’s mission is to help students build a Christian foundation for life. This mission is shared by all faculty and staff members, who connect students to God’s grace and truth daily–in classes and in the hallways, on the basketball court and in chapel. When students have a strong Christian foundation, they experience enduring peace, joy, strength, and direction. 

Uncommon Connection.

Evergreen is a place of uncommon connection. With opportunities to participate in athletics, the arts, student leadership and more, students find their niche and form strong friendships. Students thrive because they receive individual support from teachers and administrators, who also build strong partnerships with their families in Evergreen’s small school environment.

An Evergreen  Mindset.

The Evergreen Mindset is an educational philosophy, four principles which guide how ELHS approaches education. One–each student is unique, with individual talents and abilities. Two–challenges are embraced as springboards for learning. Three–all students need support to grow. Four–life-long transformation is possible through God’s grace and truth.

Evergreen is nationally accredited by WELSSA (Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod School Accreditation) through the National Council for Private School Accreditation.

We’d Love to Meet You!

The best way to see if Evergreen Lutheran High School is the best fit for your student and family is to see our campus in action. During your visit, you will meet with the principal, tour our classrooms and facilities, and have the chance to ask all your questions.

Our daughter’s time at Evergreen Lutheran High School was an experience she cherishes deeply. She often speaks about the supportive teachers and the welcoming community that made her feel valued and encouraged her to explore her passions. Academically, she was challenged and inspired, but it was the warm, faith-centered environment that truly enriched her high school years. Seeing her grow in confidence and spirituality in such a nurturing setting has been a joy for us as parents! Evergreen Lutheran didn’t just educate her; it provided a foundation for her adult life.
