The major colleges and universities in the area are some of the most respected in the world, and there are dozens of small to medium-sized colleges throughout the six-county area that offer flexible and affordable education for all. There are a number of theological seminaries and schools of music, art and law.

Chicagoland schools are highly regarded nationwide, and have been inspiring some of the country’s best minds for over 150 years. Students in all grades reach educational goals beyond normal expectations using the progressive curriculum taught throughout the region.

The results speak for themselves; Chicagoland students annually rank in the upper echelon of Illinois’ academic tests.
