Tel: (309)635-9809
Grades: PK - 8 | 57 students
 As a school, it is our desire to partner with parents in the education of their children.
This partnership means that you will be active in the education of your child.
In fact, most of our parents commit time to teaching at the school.
Others may help out by substitute teaching, working on the cleaning crew, helping with administration duties, and filling various other roles.
Part of the interview process is for parents to think through which area their unique gifts might be utilized for the good of their children and the school.
If you are wondering whether this is effective, there is a simple answer, YES! Here are some of the advantages Aletheia has to offer; 1.
Small Class Size - No more than 8 students in each classroom.
Affordable Tuition - Less than 1/3 of other area private schools.
Continuing Education - Our parent volunteers learn from each other and have the opportunity to attend conferences.
Playing to your strengths- We work to see that each role at the school is filled by someone who has a particular expertise or competence in that area.
Academics - Due to small classes, students are given more individual attention, which translates into academic excellence.
Character - Most importantly, our students and teachers are demonstrating a growth in character and a commitment to serving Christ.
I hope that you will contact us to see firsthand how Aletheia works.

School Reviews

  • Recommended January 14, 2014 - I went to Aletheia from kindergarten to 8th grade. It was a great school with teachers who cared about how the students were doing. The curriculum is definitely harder than most of the public schools, in my opinion, but it was still interesting and fun to go to school there. I just wish they had sports teams! - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended March 07, 2013 - Aletheia is a school like no other in the Peoria area. Their kindergarten/1st grade reading program (Riggs) is phenomenal! My son was reading fluently by the end of kindergarten and is now in first grade, spelling at a 4th grade level. He does second grade math with ease, as well, but his favorite part of school is recess, of course! The teachers at Aletheia are well trained, compassionate, and patient and the school runs very efficiently and competently. I highly recommend it. - Posted by Parent
