Illinois Lutheran High School
Illinois Lutheran High School exists to provide a Christ-centered education for its students. This Christian focus does not stop in the classroom but also extends in the area of co-curricular activities. Students at ILHS represent their school and their Savior while they are participating in co-curricular’s at ILHS.
Illinois Lutheran High School recognizes co-curricular activities as an integral part of our students’ education. Participation in these activities provides opportunities for personal growth, skill development, socialization, creativity and competitive experiences.
It is the belief of Illinois Lutheran High School that involvement in co-curricular activities is a privilege, which comes with certain expectations and responsibilities. It is in the interest of the school and church foundation that standards be maintained concerning academic performance and personal behavior.
Illinois Lutheran Junior High and Grade School
Athletics is a phase of Christian education outside of the Christian academic curriculum that contributes to the basic educational objective of developing the whole person: spiritually, mentally, socially, and physically. Illinois Lutheran believes that the Lord has blessed each student with a level of athletic skill and ability. Our athletics’ program is designed to train Christian athletes to recognize and understand the science of human movement, development, and wellness; to aid Christian athletes in learning the skills and sportsmanship necessary to compete with other young people, to recognize the abilities God has given to each athlete, and to learn how to develop an individual's potential for the good of the athlete that the athlete do "All things to the Glory of God"
(1 Corinthians 10:31).
Our athletic program is designed to be developmental at the 5th and 6th grade level and competitive at the 7th and 8th grade level. Every effort will be made to have each student participate in competition, but playing time is not guaranteed and neither is being selected to an athletic team at the "A" team level. Only those willing to sacrifice their time and effort and willing to cooperate, learn, and abide by the guidelines will receive the privilege to represent our school.
It is our sincere desire that the benefits the students reap from our athletic programs will prove favorable to their futures as active, faithful, evangelical Christian young people growing up in a rapidly changing and competitive world. May our loving Lord continue to bless us with willing people to serve our athletic program and anxious children who are willing to participate in athletics.
