Thank you to everyone who joined us on Friday, April 20th to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Chicago Christian High School.  

Scroll down to bottom of page for photos.  

Attendance was beyond our expections!  Over 1,300 guests attended including current and former staff, parents, friends of the school, and graduates from 1938 through current students.  The evening was celebrated with special music by the CCHS Jazz Band and Choir, a Kindergarten through 5th grade Choir, and a special Friends of CCHS Choir led by Mr. Dave Baar.  Special speakers included alumni, and both former and current faculty and administration.  All 100 years of the school's history were represented through the speakers, special videos, and a display of memorabilia.  Sponsors and donors have given very generously.  We received over $300,000.  Along with a matching gift, our total raised is just over $550,000.  To God be the glory!  You are certainly still welcome to make a donation, and to purchase a Legacy Brick.  Please see below how Chicago Christian and SCCS will invest these funds in the future of Christian education.

For the Lord is good and His faithfulness endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations.  Psalm 100:5

Leave YOUR Legacy!

Has your family has been a part of Chicago Christian High School for generations? Is your family a recent addition to the Chicago Christian family? Regardless of the length of time you have been part of Chicago Christian, YOU are an integral member of our community. Celebrate Your Chicago Christian Legacy with a gift in honor of the 100th Anniversary.

Your brick will help build the future!

1. With a minimum donation of $100, we will engrave a 4X8” brick with your name or special message. These special bricks will be used to freshen and re-create our front entrance - both the interior and exterior. Imagine vibrant foliage, a brick pathway, and a contemporary entrance that stimulates students’ visions for the future.  

2. A tithe of funds raised will be invested in the Southwest Chicago Christian Schools Foundation.  Your gift will help ensure a strong school for years to come!

3. Funds raised will also support profession development for our faculty, and security enhancements at all 3 campuses. 

Please give what you can – little or large – every gift is a blessing.
