Why LeRoy Schools?

The community of LeRoy is located in central Illinois, approximately 30 minutes from Champaign/Urbana and 20 minutes from Bloomington/Normal. LeRoy can be referred to as the crossroads of downstate Illinois.  Interstate 74, and State Highways 150 & 136 all converge in LeRoy, providing a path to any direction that you could choose to go. 

 

Our proximity to the communities of Bloomington/Normal and Champaign/Urbana also provide easy access to unmatched healthcare, entertainment, and business opportunities.  We are 15 minutes from the Central Illinois Regional Airport, providing quick and easy access to the entire country.  Illinois State University and the University of Illinois, with all that they offer, are just a short drive from LeRoy. 

 

While a small community of nearly 4000, we are able to provide many of the amenities of a much larger community: a full service pharmacy, grocery store, hardware store, lumber yard, two banks, several restaurants, dental care, and medical care.  The most exciting new edition to our community is the “Replex”, a state of art community recreational center that boasts both an indoor and outdoor pool. Access, opportunity, and hospitality make our community a great place to live and raise a family.

 

 

So why choose the LeRoy Schools?

What's In Our Backyard

While LeRoy is a self-sustaining small town of nearly 4000 residents, our location in the center of McLean County Illinois provides so much more to the families of our community.  Whether it is that we are 10 minutes from a full service Regional Airport, 15 minutes to the State Farm Corporate Headquarters or 35 minutes to Fighting Illini Basketball, the access and opportunities are limitless.
