I love how I am able to attend a high school that provides classes on world religions and classes that focus on the religion I consider myself to be a part of. Most schools do not have the opportunity for their students to talk about their faith as openly as Rockford Lutheran. Yes, Rockford Lutheran's main religious focus is on the Christian faith but it is a school that welcomes the other students to share their beliefs also and therefore invites diversity. The teachers challenge their students to open up to their classmates about their faith, culture, knowledge, and creative abilities and celebrated each student's individuality.

I am so grateful that I have gone to Rockford Christian my whole life. Rockford Christian with great academics, a Christian environment, mostly teachers who care, outstanding athletics, a strong and growing fine arts program, and constantly improving facilities.
Rockford Lutheran will certainly prepare you for college. Their classes are extremely challenging and the teachers will give you almost an excessive amount of homework. Math and science are extremely difficult and most of the teachers are not helpful. Also, the only lunch options at school are Subway or bringing your own lunch. Keep in mind that this school is a Christian school. You will be forced to take Christian classes and go to chapel. While I am a Christian, this became way too much for me. The English, History, and Theatre programs are fantastic. When I have spoken to graduates of Lutheran compared to people who are in the public school system, I can guarantee that Lutheran will prepare you for college. However, it is up to you to determine if it is worth the toll it will take to your mental health.
