Pilgrim Lutheran Christian School was started as an outreach ministry by church members who saw the need for a Christian grade school in the Beaverton area. The first step was a Kindergarten program in 1965. The elementary school was added in the fall of 1981. Our purpose at Pilgrim Lutheran Church is to share with all people the love of Jesus and the promise of eternal life. The school is “Equipping Children for Life” by serving with church and home in developing the whole child — body, mind, and spirit.

Pilgrim Lutheran Christian School makes every effort to be a good steward of its financial resources. Tuition and fees make up 90-95% of the annual budget. The remaining 5-10% reflects income through our school auction and individual donations. The average cost for the education of a full-time student at Pilgrim is roughly 60-70% the cost of what most public schools spend

Your support ensures that every student receives the best a Christian education at Pilgrim has to offer. Your gift will help keep this program affordable for those who enroll their students here and we want you to know that our staff, the Board, families and the students greatly appreciate the many ways in which our donors contribute to our community.
