What People Say about Illinois Lutheran

Our Alumni

“I have been interning with ESPN Deportes this summer, which is the Spanish version of ESPN. It has been so awesome! I get to do a little bit of everything for them. I do a lot of translating, commercial writing, and event planning. On Saturdays, I help produce “En La Jugada”, a weekly Spanish sports show that ESPN Deportes broadcasts. I also get to go to the Brewers games and help with the Spanish radio play by play, and then interview the players after the games. It’s pretty cool! A few days ago they offered me a continuation of my internship into the Fall semester. I am pretty confident this will lead to a position with ESPN after I graduate. The teachers I had at ILHS have had a huge impact on my life. Mrs. McKey taught every day with so much passion, and that caused me to develop a passion for Spanish as well. All of the teachers taught me to always use my skills to help others, and live my life for Christ, not just for myself. I have tried my best to do that so far, and I will continue to do the same in the future!”

“I loved high school! I loved it then and I love it now; I miss it. Many people will disagree with me, and that’s alright, I’ve never been one to follow the crowd and I think ILHS helped me with that. One of the easiest things to point out of not following the crowd was by choosing ILHS and the grade school my whole life. I enjoyed going to a small private school where everyone knew each other–students, faculty, and even parents. It was nice having teachers welcoming me into school every day, calling me by name, knowing that I was in sports and wondering how the team did the day before.”

Our Parents

 “My daughter will be graduating from ILHS in a few short weeks. Having said that, I wanted you to know that I have several friends that have children in similar grades (Juniors and Seniors) and they attend public schools. I wanted to express my heartfelt appreciation I have for my daughters exposure to ILHS. I do not and have not had any issues relating to drugs, cigarettes, drinking, pre-mature pregnancies, or obvious negative behavior changes. And I know that it is due to not only the school and it’s faculty, but the students, my daughter has grown up with.

When my daughter arrived home from Prom this past Friday (and before I even had a chance to ask how it was), she came in the house, gave me a big hug and THANKED ME! Now I know that this thank you could have been for the hundreds I had spent on the dress, the shoes, the jewelry, the hair, etc., etc., But in my heart, I believe my Senior who is days away from graduating from Illinois Lutheran High School was thanking me for sending her there. For the kids that she has such a close bond with that have helped mold her into what she is today. Those same kids come from a nurtured, wholesome environment that I believe in this somewhat crazy world we live in, were taught to see beyond all the temptation and make the best of it! To THRIVE in a POSITIVE light! So thank you. Thank you very much!” C. Litton

Our Students

“Our school is Christian and we learn about Jesus every single day and we won’t be judged on any questions we have about him because we want to learn more and more about him. The teachers are very nice and will eagerly help you with homework and personal matters, which I think is really good.”

“I really like the relationships that we have with our teachers in the way that we can talk to them whenever we need to. I love the size of our school because we are able to get to know everybody. The most important reason is the Christian environment at this school and how it teaches you to grow up as a God-fearing man or woman.”

“The sense of community and family in the school is incredible. You receive individual attention and participate in a variety of extracurriculars.”

“The teachers are caring and try to help the students with their special needs. The Christian atmosphere and daily contact with God’s Word is important for (our) spiritual growth.”
