Last year, Alpine Academy expanded its commitment to the west side of Rockford by opening its Resurrection Campus at 811 Locust St., which offers pre-K. Now, Alpine Academy is expanding at its main campus to offer seventh grade for the 2023-24 school year and eighth grade for the 2024-25 school year. The main campus, located at 5001 Forest View Ave., Rockford, has previously offered grades K-6.
Alpine Academy is dedicated to providing a quality education in a nurturing, family-focused Christian school. Its mission is to enrich and deepen students’ academic knowledge and spiritual faith. Teachers strive to create an environment where students grow intellectually, spiritually, emotionally and physically.
Alpine Academy is a member of the Evangelical Lutheran Education Association (ELEA) and is recognized with the Illinois State Board of Education. Its strong curriculum in reading, mathematics, science, language arts, social studies and religion provides students with solid academic foundation.
Students receive performing arts instruction beginning in preschool and continuing through seventh grade. An in-house speech pathologist provides additional special-needs support. Three theatrical programs spotlighting students’ talents and skills are presented during the year. Art, band and orchestra instruction begin in third grade. Regular physical education class is provided to all students, with upper-grade students participating in unique activities such as roller skating, bowling and field trips at Pierce Lake. Each class takes part in monthly community service projects, and the Academy is active in many charitable programs and organizations.
Alpine Academy has a fenced athletic area with a baseball field and a soccer field. It also has a protected and completely enclosed play area with slides, monkey bars and climbing areas.
At Alpine Academy, educators and parents work together to promote each student’s self-esteem, academic skills and Christian knowledge to create children who are enriched spiritually and academically, who have a dedication to lifelong learning, and who are prepared for their journey toward a successful adulthood. ❚
