Rockford Lutheran School provides a balance of faith and learning. In addition to classes that challenge our students to perform to their abilities and develop their God-given talents, this is a place where morals and values are stressed. Rockford Lutheran is a welcoming environment, open to children and families of all faiths.
Spiritual life is a part of every day. At the Academy, students experience Bible stories and songs as well as weekly Chapel services. Conversations about God with teachers and other students support their development as faithful, well rounded students.
In the Junior and Senior High School, every day begins with a prayer, with another at lunchtime. Students lead our chapel ministries as well as running tech services for chapel. A group of nineteen upper class students lead cabin groups during the annual Freshman Retreat; these groups continue to meet through the academic year to provide support to freshmen. Every Wednesday morning Allies, a high school group, meets for student-led prayer and support.
Community service is an important component in developing a strong moral character.
