Christian Life Schools was founded in 1973 as a ministry of Rockford First Assembly. The school campus is located on the east side of Rockford and serves students representing more than 140 churches. Currently, Christian Life serves approximately 750 students PreK-3 through 12th Grade.
When we introduce Christian Life Schools to someone new, we usually discuss everything from academics to athletics, classrooms to curriculum. But above all, we strive to communicate the unique value of the Christian education we offer. We are committed to shaping the lives of our students by inspiring them to express the qualities which matter most — honesty in word and deed, kindness toward others, respect for authority, and trust in God. What you’ll discover here is a disciplined, yet loving, environment in which every child receives personal attention. We see each student as a unique person created by God to live the fullest and most significant life possible.
Presently, there are more than 50 classrooms and two libraries in the combined facilities of Christian Life Schools. We have six technology labs, as well as terminals within classrooms, giving us multiple technology labs accessible on campus daily, to serve the needs of both staff and students. There are two gymnasiums, the largest being a double gymnasium in the high school wing which features a four-sided scoreboard, an exceptional sound system, and a lighting system which provides an exciting display for all home games. We also have an 800-seat amphitheater which is handicapped accessible. There is ample parking and separate entrances for Elementary School and Middle School/High School.
Christian Life Schools is accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), North Central Accreditation (NCA), and is recognized by the State Board of Education.
