Illiana’s counseling department serves students and their families in a variety of ways. Students are welcome to talk to our counselors at any time about any need, whether academic, spiritual or personal in nature.
Our counselors both hold master’s degrees in counseling and are certified as school counselors. Mrs. Melanie Benes generally works with students whose last names begin with A-K and Mr. Neil Zandstra works with students whose last names begin with L-Z.

Please feel free to contact your student’s counselor by phone or e-mail with any questions about our services.

We appreciate your prayers as we strive to meet the many needs of the students at Illiana Christian High School.
