High School


Our mission is to be a Christ-centered learning community intent on restoring God’s world.
As a school in the Reformed Christian tradition, we teach every class from a Biblical perspective. We learn about God’s order in Mathematics and Science, and His beauty in Art. We see God’s faithfulness in History, and learn about keeping our body as a temple in Physical Education. We offer an academically challenging program with committed faculty that invest in every student, every day. Are we a college prep school? Absolutely! But Chicago Christian is much more than that. Whether you want to prepare for college or seek to join a trade or other career, the Chicago Christian community will help you grow, learn, and be confident in yourself and your abilities.

List of 11 items.
