Developing Christian Leaders

An Illinois Lutheran education empowers students to be bold, confident Christian leaders in tomorrow’s world. Through a strong academic program, our caring, qualified instructors prepare students for college, the workforce and beyond.

Our students develop essential critical thinking skills and develop a strong, Christian worldview as they discover their own unique God-given skills and abilities. Students participate in a wide range of extracurricular activities and social experiences that help to build a strong community within the school and create memories that will last a lifetime.
