Local schools forming new conference

Updated 3/4/2022 5:17 PM

Aurora Christian, St. Edward, Timothy Christian and Wheaton Academy will leave the Metro Suburban Conference and join the newly formed Chicagoland Christian Conference effective with the 2023-24 school year, the schools announced Friday.

They will join Bishop McNamara, Chicago Christian, Chicago Hope, Christ the King Jesuit and Marian Central in the nine-school conference. The league will have eight schools for football because Timothy Christian does not offer the sport.


Left behind in the MSC will be Westmont. Riverside-Broofield, Ridgewod and Elmwood Park, all public schools. Three schools -- IC Catholic Prep, St. Francis and Aurora Central Catholic announced last month they will leave the MSC in 2023 to join the Chicago Catholic League/East Suburban Catholic Conference.

"The CCC will bring together faith-based schools from 6 counties around the Chicagoland area," a news release stated. "It will promote a balanced and competitive environment while placing a special emphasis on building the whole individual in mind, body and spirit in glory to God."
