We transferred our child to Rockford Christian School from a district 205 school that was advocating medication. Needless to say our child flourished with Rockford Christian he is a straight A student and doing just fabulously. We were truly blessed to have our child in this school. I would recommend this school to anyone it is the best. This is a school that really cares about their students. It is not a country club as to who donates the most money gets preferential treatment, this school is true to its mission statement. I thank the whole faculty at this school God Bless you all.

We were a transfer family, we transferred our son to Rockford Christian from another private school in Rockford. We are so pleased with our decision, only wish we would have done it sooner. The teachers are so dedicated and involved with the students. The curriculum is challenging and interesting. I like the fact that students are encouraged to learn outside the box, they don't just sit at a desk for 7 hours a day and memorize facts. The projects and hands on learning makes it fun for students to get involved. We were very impressed by the use of technology in our middle school student. Our son made great friends fast, families are all wonderful and accepting. The athletics are top notch, many state contenders.
