Located in Rockford Illinois, Rockford Christian School is a private, nondenominational Christian school dedicated to high standards of academic excellence and spiritual growth. All of our programs whether academic, athletic or social revolve around the understanding that people are spiritual beings, and that God has uniquely wired each person with gifts and abilities. At Rockford Christian we believe that the school age years are formative for discovering those gifts and learning how to use them for God's glory as well as for personal development and fulfillment. The school is run on the principle that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God and that it provides guidance for all aspects of life.
Rockford Christian School has been in existence since 1961. Begun as an independent non-denominational private kindergarten, the school has expanded steadily to now include over 750 students in grades Pre-K3 through 12. Preschool through grade 4 is located at our Lower School campus; grades 5-12 are located at our Upper School campus. After years of operating as an elementary school and then as an elementary/junior high school, ninth grade was added in 1994, leading to the first senior class graduation in 1998.
The vision of Rockford Christian School is to provide a legacy of excellent, Christ-centered education where students thrive spiritually, excel academically, and live boldly for Christ.
The mission of Rockford Christian School is to cultivate biblically minded students who serve God to their greatest potential and impact the world for Christ.
