Christian school for grades Pre-K to 12. Founded
in 1940 by Robert C. McQuilkin, CIU’s first presi-

McQuilkin’s goal of teaching young people that
there is “life in abundance” (John 10:10) for those
who follow Jesus Christ as Lord. The school is
college preparatory, coeducational, and receives
both resident and day students. The Ben Lippen
family consists of students from a wide range of
cultures and backgrounds. As many as 30 foreign

women offers an educational experience in itself.
