I was an alumni at Linfield and I can honestly say that this place changed my life.No place is perfect-- every school is filled with people and students who aren't flawed and make mistakes. HOWEVER, what I think Linfield does really well is try to pursue excellence in each area and to honor Christ with all decisions, whether it be disciplinary actions or development goals. If there is a problem, because of our small community and class sizes, administrators and teachers know about it early and are able to address it. The faculty is really here for the students- they care on a level that far exceeds their job description. I had staff members mentor me through college, relationships, and even attend my wedding. If you're looking for a place where the people care about your kids, you need to check out Linfield. Academics are a main focus on all campuses. At the Elementary School, it looks like LOTS of hands-on learning experiences and teachers who foster a love of learning in each student. At the Middle School, students have an amazing selection of classes to 'try'-- whether it be 3D printing Drones in STEAM class, learning about graphic design, or taking the lead in the school musical. At the High School, every student is able to meet with college counselors several times each year. They help each student choose their 'path' and find their right college fit, ensuring they are taking the right classes, and even holding their hands through the college admissions process.Again, I love this place. Truly. Check it out for yourself!

I can't imagine my children attending any other school. Linfield is the complete package. I have great confidence that Linfield will positively encourage my children to grow and mature in a way that will make them world leaders and world changers.

As a former Alumni of Linfield Christian, I can attest to the Christlike atmosphere and caring spirit that is so eagerly boasted about. Linfield maintains its standards as a college preparatory school while integrating faith so seamlessly into its curriculum. As an alumni, I can say the relationship between students and teachers is unparalleled. They are able to maintain a professional boundary with students while actively investing into their academic and personal lives. I felt genuinely cared about and invested in throughout my schooling at Linfield and onward through college. As a college prep school, I was prepared for the academic rigor of college level courses. Many of my university courses were less rigorous than Linfield's curriculum which lessened the stress in college and made way for extra curriculars. I would recommend Linfield to anyone who asks and I am so blessed to have been a part of this family!

One of the many things I love about Linfield is the way they encourage older students to mentor younger students. One of the ways they do this is through their camps. My Jr Kinder daughter recently participated in the Cheer Camp. At the end of the camp they all performed at a Varsity half-time show. My daughter is very shy and wanted to participate but was scared. The cheerleaders made her feel comfortable and safe and she went out there and did it! After the show my daughter beemed with pride at overcoming her anxiety and performing the cheer she so wanted to be part of. The encouragement the cheerleaders gave to my little girl will forever hold a place in her heart, as well as mine. My daughter grew in a big way that night. In a way that can't be measured by things like school test scores (which Linfield does excel in), but rather, in the way of confidence, self-esteem and being able to trust others. Linfield is much more than a great school that prepares its students for college and the world. Linfield students learn to lead with compassion. It was so evident that night. The Lord put the right leaders in front of my daughter at just the right time.

Linfield is worth every single dollar! The quality of staff and academics is superior in the community. The Christian culture of the school is extremely impressive. We have been to other Christian schools in the area- we are blessed to land at Linfield.
