International Student Program
Rockford Christian Schools announces significant expansion plans which include building an Indoor Fitness and Recreation Facility, a Center for the Arts, and a residence hall to enhance its college-preparatory experience and serve as a home for students from around the nation and the world.
The Indoor Fitness and Recreation Facility which will support the health, fitness, and social needs of all of our students. In addition to bolstering our strong athletics program, the Indoor Fitness and Recreation Facility will offer a safe gathering place for students after school and an additional destination to be utilized by students, coaches, and families on evenings and weekends. As part of the project, the current soccer field will remain outdoors but will be relocated and upgraded. The proposed 16,000-sq.-ft. Center for the Arts will further our nationally-recognized fine arts program. The Center will include an 11,000-sq.-ft. theater for Rockford Christian Schools’ and community events.
A residence hall will offer on-campus housing for students from around the nation and the world. The addition enhances our college-preparatory experience, extends our missionary outreach, and continues to strengthen Rockford Christian Schools’ position as a preferred choice for elite faith-based, college-preparatory education.
First Midwest Group; The Puri Family Gift Land to Rockford Christian Schools
Donation of land first step in a single Rockford Christian Schools Campus
Tuesday, December 26, 2017 - Rockford, IL: Rockford Christian Schools today announced a donation of eight acres of land valued at $2.7M by First Midwest Group and The Puri Family to Rockford Christian Education Association. The donation of land, located on Bell School Rd., is adjacent to Rockford Christian Schools’ existing facilities and represents the first step toward the vision of a single PreK – 12 Rockford Christian campus.
First Midwest Group and The Puri Family have been generous benefactors for Rockford Christian Schools over the years. They co-donated with Randy and Jane Reese the land for the original school as well as two acres for the Diane Bertrand Science, Technology and Humanities Center. Rockford Christian Schools is just one of many educational institutions and initiatives supported by First Midwest Group and The Puri Family.
“We are truly blessed and grateful to First Midwest Group and The Puri Family for their ongoing support and commitment to our vision of setting the standard of excellence for faith-based, college-preparatory education for the nation and world,” said Randy Taylor, superintendent of Rockford Christian Schools. “While there is much work to be done to make our dream of a single campus and new elementary school a reality, this donation of land is invaluable as we work toward that goal.”
The gift of land to Rockford Christian Schools comes just a month after the school announced plans to build an Indoor Fitness and Recreation Facility, a Center for the Arts, and a residence hall to enhance the college-preparatory experience. While the two plans are unrelated, they both point to exciting momentum, energy and enthusiasm around Rockford Christian Schools.
