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.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
