contentsBatavia IL Chamberads


Education in Batavia is a top priority, with the school district’s mission, “Always Learning. Always Growing.” The district is committed to providing a positive learning environment for every child, whether challenging the gifted student or offering extra help for the one who is struggling.

Batavia schools score high in academic performance with more than 80 percent of Batavia High School graduates attending college each year. Students have the opportunity to explore other areas outside the core curriculum such as music and art. Recently, Batavia High School was named a “Grammy Nominated” school for its excellence in music. For those who are not college bound, there are vocational classes in a variety of areas.

Batavia schools prepare students for success after graduation with whatever path they pursue.

Mooseheart Child City & School, Inc.
Mooseheart, IL 60539 |

Located on a beautiful 1,000-acre campus just south of Batavia, Mooseheart is known as the “Child City.” Created by the Loyal Order of Moose in 1913, it was open to children who had lost a parent who had been a Moose member.

The admissions committee now accepts applications from promising children in need (infancy through high school) with preference given to those with a Moose family affiliation. Home to 220 children, Mooseheart has admitted more than 12,000 children.

It is an independent city with its own post office, school district and health care clinic. All Mooseheart students are educated for success after graduation and each graduate leaves with a diploma and a certificate for proficiency in a trade and Naval Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) training. For those who are college bound, scholarship assistance is available.

In 1994, Mooseheart became known as “Mooseheart, Child City and School” and earned 501c(3) designation from the Internal Revenue Service, opening the door for fundraising and less reliance on the Moose organization. Among community events open to the public are an annual Easter egg hunt, a Holiday Lights show and other events.
