For the world and forever

The history of the  Lutheran Educational Association BOM JESUS IELUSC began in 1866, with the creation of the German School (Deutsche Schule) in Joinville-SC. This is part of the history of the city, founded in 1851. However, Bom Jesus was officially founded in 1926. In 1960, it became the property of the Joinville Evangelical Community – CEJ/UP.

After many episodes, Bom JESUS IELUSC is a school nowadays whose name students affectionately chose: Bonja. The school is one of the largest educational institutions in Santa Catarina and is the largest Lutheran school linked to the Evangelist Church of the Lutheran Confession in Brazil.

Bonja’s educational proposal emphasizes educating in order to develop an autonomous, creative, ethical, critical and committed subject for the ever-changing society. Thus, Bonja turns out autonomous citizens who are able to follow confident new paths. Our concept exemplifies this proposal: “Bonja. For the world and forever. ”.

Theological Principles. As a Lutheran community school, Bonja is committed to life and Godś mission in the world. This is manifested in the relationships between people, peoples and the environment in the search for peace.
We strive to educate leaders committed to serving  society and a decent life for everyone.

Methodology. BONJA  aims for  education that promotes active learning and student participation in knowledge building. We consider that what is important is not only the various methodological strategies, but the teaching perspective for student learning. The methodology  promotes student protagonism, favoring the structuring and expansion of knowledge, the teacher’s main function will be mediation.

The goal is to develop in students skills and competencies that will support creativity in several areas and in solving personal and collective problems and situations throughout their lives.

We have our way. Our students develop themselves in a welcoming environment  learning knowledge and values that prepare them for the world . This is a place for students to build the best version of themselves by exploring their skills, learning to make their own choices and, most importantly, making their dreams come true. For us, learning requires inspiration, synchrony and interaction. This is our Bonja way!
