We invite you to see for yourself why parents choose Christian Life Schools for their children. The best way to experience the Christian Life family is to schedule your own private tour of our campus. Additionally, having your student shadow a current CLS student is available. 
We’d be happy to personally assist you in getting this scheduled. Simply email narvis.penix@clschools.org  or call 815.877.5749. 


We look forward to meeting you!
