 Wondering what K4 is?

K4 offers so much more than preschool.  K4 is for those wanting their child to attend to the same curricula and structure as Kindergarten is for 5 year olds. Yet, due to our excellent curriculum & student/teacher ratio, is flexible to conform to your child's ability. The next year, students attend K5. Due to this extra reinforcement in skills, our Kindergarten students are well prepared for 1st grade!

Tuition Assistance!
"New to Adventist Education 3-Way Plan!"
Hesitant because you have never experienced one of our Adventist schools?
We are confident that you will love our school! We are providing tuition assistance in the form of our 3-Way Plan to assist you in forging ahead to make that step toward providing an alternative to public school for your children. For the first year your child attends our school, you pay only one third of the tuition. The second year, you pay two thirds of the tuition. The third year you would be responsible for full tuition.
(Visit the tuition section of our website for details as to tuition rates.)

New! K4-K5 Kindergarten Program!

We have expanded our program to include K4 & K5 students. NAD approved Stepping Stones curriculum provides enrichment for your 4 and 5 year olds in preparation for their elementary school years. This program will assist your children in finding Jesus in all activities and supports their natural inquisitive nature toward higher comprehension of academic subjects such as Bible, Mathematics, Reading and other Language Arts (Spelling, Phonics, Writing, etc) as well as Social Studies, Science, Art, Music, Physical Education and Character Development.  
We have had an awesome year!
Our staff are enthusiastically preparing for this coming school year!

From a Parent-

Sara Church

Not being an Adventist myself, I was apprehensive at first. However my children have received a top notch education in a wonderful, safe setting. The difference... between this school and their former public school is immense! My children excel in the one on one teaching environment and their social skills have become those of kindness and empathy as there is no bullying or exclusion and they've had the opportunity to truly enjoy childhood and have fun! Making the decision to enroll my children here has been one of the best decisions I've made.

~Our Teacher~

Hello, Everyone! I'm Mrs. Ferguson. I have been teaching for the Illinois Conference of Seventh-day Adventists since 1995. I just wanted to share a little about myself. I believe passionately in Adventist Education and live to bring my experience and love for the Lord to my students.
A few facts about myself:

  • MAT from Andrews University in Elementary Education
  • State certified
  • Denominationally certified in the SDA Educational System
  • Endorsement in Social Studies and Jr. Academy Economics
  • Endorsement in Jr. Academy Spanish
  • First degree BA in Economics with minors in Spanish & Psychology
  • Have been teaching since 1995
  • Have been teaching here in Marion Adventist Christian School for the past three years.
  • Served as Robotics Club coach in N. Aurora School
  • Served on Board of Education for 2 years
  • I enjoy teaching all grades and all subjects.
  • Before the IL Conference, I worked in the mental health field with physically & mentally handicapped children for 10 years.
  • I believe that children who are led to the Lord as their Savior are children who will become a blessing to society as well as productive citizens.
  • I believe that each student has infinite possibilities; I believe each student can learn.
  • Part of my philosophy of education: teach to their mental, physical, spiritual dimensions.
  • I love discovering the student's strengths in order to help them learn. I feel it is important to get to know them and establish strong teacher/student relationships.

I am looking forward to meeting with you soon!
