As a graduate of CLS, I have nothing but good things to say about the school. I am currently a senior at Wheaton College (Ill.), and while Wheaton is known to be incredibly challenging academically, I was completely prepared. Specifically, the writing skills that I developed through my time as a CLS student were incomparable. The way that teachers encouraged me to stretch myself in the classroom, even with the subjects that I was less passionate about, gave me a well-rounded education and desire to learn that I was able to apply in every one of my college courses. Additionally, my involvement in CLS athletics shaped the person I am today, and enabled me to pursue a collegiate golf career. Most importantly, however, CLS gave me a spiritual foundation to stand on. I developed a deep relationship with the Lord that remained steadfast as I left home to attend college. Through numerous jobs/internships, I was presented with opportunities to interact with nonbelievers, and had a confidence in my faith that helped me to share the Gospel. I would highly recommend Christian Life School to any family.

I have been a CLS parent for 8 years and have 3 children in the school. I am repeatedly impressed by the quality of the teaching staff and their commitment to making certain students are challenged at their individual ability levels. The school does a remarkable job at mixing a high quality education with plenty of opportunities for fine arts involvement, athletic participation and social connection. My three children have been involved in a total of six different sports, three different fine arts departments and they love all of the activities they get to do with their school friends. Student life at CLS provides a great balance of advancement and fun for my kids. Administration is ALWAYS available for questions and/or concerns and they show a very real desire to partner with parents in the best interest of students. I highly recommend Christian Life School and plan for all of my children to attend CLS until their High School graduation dates.

Just graduated after spending kindergarten - 12th grade at the school, i loved it, but sadly i have to move on to college. If you interested i would defiantly recommend having your student or yourself shadow for a day, it is the best way to see if you like any school.
