Fox River Country Day School

The school was founded by Morris Schwabacher and V.P. Randall on the shores of
Long Lake, Michigan, on Memorial Day, 1913. These two men shared a desire to help some of the many half-orphaned boys roaming around the stockyards of Chicago.

Originally named Chicago Junior School, it began as an active farm, with no more than a tent and superabundant wilderness. This helped instill many life and work values in the students, characterizing the unique program of CJS. On Memorial Day, 1923, the school moved to its present location in Elgin. The new property was also a working farm, as still evidenced by the silo in the middle of campus.
