On Religion, The Media and Life as a 20-something in Chicago

ELGIN — The Fox River Country Day School campus that has sat along Route 25 north of Interstate 90 since 1923 is for sale. The sale of the campus — set on about 62 wooded acres along the Fox River — follows the school’s announcement in June it would close after 98 years because of economic difficulties. It declared bankruptcy in November. The school had been founded in 1913 as Chicago Junior School, an active farm in St. Joseph, Mich. “It was a tough decision,” said Alan Neil, president of the Fox River Country Day School Board of Trustees. “It’s really hard to be on campus right now. Normally you hear lots of screaming, giggling kids having fun and learning, and now it’s quiet. It’s a shame.” For the rest of the story, visit The Courier-News.
