From Rockford Lutheran School

Making a choice for Rockford Lutheran is making a choice to be part of an exceptional college preparatory education in a challenging and inspiring Christian environment. We are large enough to offer multiple classrooms per grade level and a comprehensive high school program with a wealth of fine arts and athletics opportunities. Yet, we are intimate enough that every student is known by name, loved, and shown that they are valued each and every day.

Founded in 1964, Rockford Lutheran School is proudly grounded in the Lutheran tradition of Christian education, but is open to students of all faith backgrounds. All programs and activities of the school are infused with our values of keeping Christ at the center, seeking excellence in all endeavors, valuing harmony and diversity, and living lives of service to others.
