This year marks an exciting anniversary in the impact of Christian Life Schools in the Rockford region.  “God has been moving in the lives of our students and faculty at Christian Life for 50 years to make a difference in the Rockford region and across the globe,” shared Dr. Judy Bethge who was appointed Head of School in 2022. “With the same faith that propelled E.H. Whitcomb to build a church and school in the middle of a cornfield here in the Stateline region, we stand expectant today believing that God will continue to work through the lives of our students and families to change the world for His glory.”  The mission of Christian Life Schools is to equip students with a Christ-centered education for a lifetime of success. To celebrate all that God has done through the decades, we have some exciting events for everyone to enjoy!
