Illinois Central Christian School is a place where Christ is honored and life is balanced. A balanced Christian life is first and foremost centered on the Word of God. Our desire for our students is that they not only excel in academics, but also in wisdom and in character. At Illinois Central Christian School, Christian is more than just a name; it's a way of life. Let us be clear, it is not the students that make our school "Christian." Our students are young and learning to grow in Christ. What makes a Christian school "Christian" is the atmosphere in which the teaching takes place, the programs of the school, and the staff that instructs the children. At Illinois Central Christian School, we strive to provide an atmosphere that is balanced, biblically centered, and Christ honoring; and our staff members share our same conviction. We are proud to offer Bible classes and chapel for every age group every single week. Our Bible classes are taught by the pastors of Bay View Baptist Church. Speakers from all over the area are brought in to preach the Word of God during chapel. Every single subject is taught from a biblical perspective. Everything we do is centered around Christ and the Word of God, for the Bible is our final authority in all matters of faith and practice.

God has blessed us with the opportunity and ability to impart to the students at Illinois Central Christian School valuable skills and talents that they can use for the honor and glory of God for the rest of their lives. Through the faculty of our school as well as many talented members of Bay View Baptist Church, students have opportunities to learn these various skills in not only a classroom setting, but through one on one instruction. We offer vocal lessons, as well as lessons in a wide variety of instruments including piano, violin, brass, and woodwinds. God has blessed us with a very talented staff. For example, our main violin instructor is a member of our church and volunteers his time every week in our school to help teach the students to play. He has an earned doctorate in violin. At Illinois Central Christian School, we have a hand bell choir, a vocal choir for both the younger grades and the upper grades, a band, and a symphony. Through our incredible fine arts program, our students are learning and developing skills that are Christ honoring and can be used for the work of God. Our students also have the opportunity to compete is several state-wide fine arts competitions in which they do very well. They competed in the Six Flags Music in the Park competitions both in St. Louis and Chicago, they have also competed in competitions in Schaumburg, IL as well as Louisville, Kentucky. At Illinois Central Christian School, your young people will have the opportunity to develop several skills in the fine arts. Come see the difference at Illinois Central Christian School!

From science, to math, to history, everything at Illinois Central Christian School is taught from a biblical perspective. We are very excited about our Christian academic program. Not only is it biblical, but it is very extensive. Our students are pushed to learn and excel in their studies. Our curriculum is academically superior to any public school curriculum, and at Illinois Central Christian School, we will never use the C.O.R.E. curriculums! Every one of our grades scores much higher on their composite scores for national testing than every public school in the area. We primarily use the A Beka curriculums, but we also supplement several subjects on the upper grades with other math and science curriculum. You can learn more about the incredible A Beka curriculums at www.abeka.com. At Illinois Central Christian School, we believe in a strong academic program and our test scores prove it. Our graduates have no problem entering any public university or field that they desire. We have had students in the past go to Bradley University on their Presidential scholarship. We have had students go on to pursue medical degrees and engineering degrees in large universities. We have had students go into the military working as pilots and electrical engineers on submarines. At Illinois Central Christian School, your students will receive an education that is second to none. Come see the difference at Illinois Central Christian School!

Student life includes many extracurricular activities from educational field trips to fun days and student events. As close as our own athletic facility or as far away as the Creation Science Museum in Kentucky, as close as Peoria or as far away as St. Louis, we take in science, history, engineering, astronomy, government, and much more. All of this is included in our one cost tuition. When it comes to having fun, we do it right at Illinois Central Christian School. From parties, to trips, to special days, there is always something fun and exciting going on at Illinois Central Christian School. Our Juniors and Seniors also have the opportunity to go on a special Junior/Senior trip every other year to places as far as Washington, DC. Your students will not only receive a quality, balanced education, but they will have fun throughout the year at the same time. Come see the difference at Illinois Central Christian School!

Athletics is another opportunity for students at Illinois Central Christian School to develop socially and physically. In addition to promoting physical conditioning, athletics help our students learn leadership skills, perseverance, and school spirit. Illinois Central Christian School offers a variety of sports for its students. Girls may participate in cheerleading and volleyball. Guys may participate in basketball. Our qualified staff includes many gracious volunteers from the Bay View Baptist Church family. These godly mentors focus on developing both athletic skill and Christian character. Some schools allow sports to take precedent over everything throughout the year. These school become very sports-focused in their schedules and mind-set. This is not the case at Illinois Central Christian School. Sports is a wonderful opportunity for our students to develop various physical and social skills, but we understand that sports is just a tool among many God-given abilities that are to be used to bring honor and glory to God. We are proud to offer a very balanced schedule between sports, academics, fine arts, and spiritual things. Having said that, our sports program is very competitive and our students do very well. Recently, our volleyball team took second place in the IACS State Tournament. If sports are important to you, your students will have an opportunity to participate and have a great time while being taught the importance of a balanced Christian life.
