The Illiana communities have been committed to the principle of Christian education for over 100 years. By 1911, Christian elementary schools were established in Highland, Lansing, Munster, South Holland and more recently, Crown Point.
Prior to 1945, few people went on to secondary education. Illiana’s founders were challenged by the idea of Christian secondary education and how to make it available for their
The basic requirement is that the families are Christians and are active in a Christian church. We also ask that the student is not on any academic or behavior discipline. Since our feeder schools use these same requirements, families from these schools are admitted automatically after completing an application. Those coming from other schools are asked to complete an application, submit previous grades, have their pastor submit a recommendation and participate in an interview.
We do not use any one published curriculum. We select the textbooks or digital curriculum that will best equip our students and teach all curriculum from a Christian perspective.
The average class size is 17. Some band or choir classes have more than 50 students. Some Advanced Placement classes might have less than 10.
Yes, we do require that all teachers have a Bachelor’s degree and be state certified. Also, our teachers are required to earn a Master’s degree in order to continue teaching at Illiana. Most of them have master’s degrees.
On a regular school day, homeroom begins at 7:45am and school is dismissed at 2:50pm.
We are fully accredited by AdvancED and Christian Schools International. We are also recognized by the State of Indiana.

I have been associated with Illiana for over 50 years--as a teacher for 33 yrs, as an administrator for 11 years, and now am serving on the Illiana Board of Trustees. I also spend time serving as a substitute teacher there. I say all this to substantiate what I know about the school. I have had my 4 children graduate from Illiana and now have a granddaughter there. And I can
ICHS has been a blessing to our family. We have had 3 children go through the school system, and we have our last child in the school now. ICHS has prepared our girls for college, where they all have received many scholarships to help with the cost of higher education. Teachers are always willing to help students with any help they need with their assignments.
Teachers care for the students above and beyond what other schools have to offer. Not only in their field of teaching but also spiritually, teachers assist their students in growing.
I enjoyed attending Illiana Christian, made wonderful friends, great teachers, and friendly staff. The clubs are a way to meet new people and our Volunteer Days were meaningful.
Since my daughter entered high school, she has found a new love for learning. The staff has shown her love and has made education exciting for her. I could never be more proud of her and our new family (Illiana Christian School)
Best high school experience yet!
Excellent school!!! I am so very happy with them. From the teachers to support staff they are all great.
The teachers really cared about us and our growth spiritually, academically, socially, etc. For the size of the school, the extra-curricular options were very impressive and well-run; the music and arts programs receive roughly equal treatment as the athletic programs. The academics were second-to-none and prepared us well for colleges and careers alike.
How did we do?
