The general purpose of the IACS is the establishment, promotion, development, and protection of Christian schools and Christian education in the State of Illinois. We seek to promote Christian education that is spiritual, academically excellent, balanced, professional, and practical. We encourage this through coordinated services and leadership. The IACS provides services to member schools in the areas of educational consultation, publications, legislative updates, educational workshops and conventions, academic and fine arts tournaments, athletic tournaments, and teacher placement service. General membership meetings for pastors and administrators are held quarterly.
The IACS believes that true Christian education is Bible-based and Christ-centered, seeking to develop Christ-like character in the life of each student as Biblical principles are internalized.
The IACS is a state affiliate of the American Association of Christian Schools, one of the country’s leading organizations of Christian schools.
