ELCHK Lutheran School is an English-medium DSS school that offers a Christian-based IB education to students in the New Territories.

Founded by the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Hong Kong (ELCHK), ELCHK Lutheran School offers what it describes as a “glocalized curriculum” to a body of local and international students, which has a strong focus on “enhancing students' biliteracy and trilingualism”. As well as teaching the Primary Years Programme (PYP) and the IB Diploma Programme (IBDP), LA is a candidate school for the Middle Years Programme (MYP). College students have the choice of studying the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) or the IBDP.

LA is a Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS) school, which means that it receives a subsidy from the government. The DSS scheme was introduced by the Education Bureau in 1991 to help improve the offering of private education in Hong Kong. DSS schools have the freedom to design their own curriculum and set their own school fees, although they must focus on offering a curriculum that targets local students and prepares them for local examinations.

As with all DSS schools, LA has its own admissions policy rather than following the government’s Primary One Admission system (POA) or Secondary School Places Allocation (SSPA) scheme. Fees, which are higher than most DSS schools, range from HKD 125,844 in the primary division to HKD 155 467 in secondary.

Facilities include an outdoor running track, performing arts room, library, science and technology labs, and multi-media room.

A full review will be posted shortly. 

If you are the owner or the principal of the school and note any inaccuracies, or would like to update data, you can now open an account with us. You will also be able to add admissions availability per year group, and advertise current job vacancies. This is a free service. Please help us keep prospective parents up to date with your latest information.
