Schools and Education in Peoria
Education is very important in Peoria. According to the Peoria Chamber of Commerce, the excellent reputation of our local schools "is one of the reasons for Peoria’s growth.” Nationally recognized, award-winning programs – from preschool to post-graduate – offer Peoria’s students a superior education. In fact, the “excellence of area schools is a source of pride to Central Illinois residents.”
That’s why we have such a fantastic school system and several institutions of higher learning. These include such notable institutions as University of Illinois’ College of Medicine, Bradley University, Illinois Central College and the Peoria Campus of Robert Morris College.
