I have two boys attending Rockford Lutheran Academy and I am very pleased with the education they are receiving. The teachers are wonderful to them and they are both challenged academically. There is homework almost every night but overall we are very happy with the school and can comfortably recommend it to anyone. Well worth the money.

I havea daughter in 7th grade. My husband and I are very pleased with the school and also the other children and parents. This school reminds me of the type of school I attended 30 years ago. It is a safe environment where inappropriate behavior is not tolerated.
