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. Details include: The Indoor Fitness and Recreation Facility 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 additional fine arts classrooms and 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 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.

Expansion Begins at RCS

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) - Rockford Christian Schools welcomes 82 students from 12 different countries to study in the Stateline, now the school hopes to bring in even more.

The school hopes a major expansion with an indoor recreation facility, a center for the arts and a residence hall will bring in more international students from countries not represented at the school already.

Wednesday, the school marked the launch of their expansion plans. Rockford Christian Schools Superintendent Randy Taylor says this is the green light to begin finding more students.

"All the things that we've done was preparation for this day where all agreements have been finalized and now we are ready to recruit students," says Taylor.

Taylor says the fitness and art centers should be open by August of 2018. He expects the residence hall will be completed during the next school year.

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.
