Our Student Council hosts an Intramural Sports Tournament each quarter. Each tournament is a week long event during our community lunch time. Not athletic? Don't worry - the games rotate through various sports and have included chess, a bean bag toss and badminton in addition to traditional sports. The purpose is to have fun and build community!
Where the courtroom meets the stage … as a member of this club, you’ll compete using case materials to build arguments and present a legal case before actual attorneys and judges. Each year, Illinois assigns one case – recently they have involved bullying and murder. You will compete against teams across the state all while sharpening your critical thinking, public speaking, and acting skills. Will you be a lawyer or a witness? In the last six years, Chicago Christian has won 3rd place in state twice, and placed in the top 8 four times.
Our team holds the 2019 State Championship title and we are ranked 7th nationally!
Scholastic Bowl is a fastpaced competition where teams of five players race to answer knowledge-based questions in all academic areas, but also current events including popular culture, sports and even video games.

The CCHS Scholastic Bowl team are the Metro Suburban champions two years running and last season we won the 1A State title in a thrilling match in Peoria.

Mock Trial has got to be the biggest 'leap of faith' I've ever taken. I'm so glad I did! I knew nothing about the program going in, and now I have made such a close group of friends. I learned a lot about both professionalism and law.

Anyone who knows me well will tell you my favorite activity at school is Scholastic Bowl. I've had tons of awesome experiences with my teammates and our coach, Mr. Altena -- competing, scrimmaging, and even the conversations riding the bus to and from matches.
