We are pleased you have chosen to explore enrolling your child(ren) in our wonderful school. As you make this very important decision for your family we want to provide you with as much information as possible whether through this website or through a personal school tour. When we admit a student, we are also admitting the whole family to become part of our school family, so it is important that both the parents and students understand who we are so that you can prayerfully consider if FCS aligns with your core values and believes.
We are a body of believers who desire a Bible-based Christian education for our children. We believe the Bible to be the inspired and infallible Word of God given to us so that we will know how to live our lives in fullness with Him. In today's culture war, the Bible is being pitted against politically correct social issues that we believe do not align with Biblical truth. We stand against any attempt to water down the gospel message or attempt to rename what God calls sin as socially acceptable. We teach our students of God's incredible love, forgiveness and mercy and want all our students to enter into a deep and growing relationship with Him. At FCS, we make policies and procedures in keeping with these deeply held convictions.
Following is the admissions criteria. Before you apply, please make sure you are in agreement with our admissions policy
In regards to academics, the student must have at least a C average in their CORE classes, be in good standing and have no exceptional disciplinary issues at his/her previous school.
The student and at least one parent with whom the student resides must be in agreement with the FCS Statement of Faith and have received Jesus Christ as their Savior. In addition, the parent and student must regularly fellowship in a local church. Accordingly, FCS will not admit families that belong to or express faith in religions that deny the absolute Deity/Trinity of Jesus Christ as the one and only Savior and path to salvation. Furthermore, students and families are expected to manifest a Christian lifestyle by living life according to Biblical teachings.
Accordingly, FCS will not admit families that engage in behaviors that Scripture defines as deviate and sin. Once admitted, if the student or parent/guardian with whom the student resides becomes involved in lifestyles contradictory to Biblical beliefs, we may choose to dis-enroll the student/family from the school.
Children must be 4 years old by September 30th to enter Pre-K or 5 years old by September 30th to enter Kindergarten. A child's birthday is always viewed in the full context of developmental maturity and will include physical, emotional and social development, as well as academic readiness.
Students entering Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten must be fully potty trained. They should be able to identify when they need to use the bathroom and have the ability to communicate that to their teacher. While we understand that occasional accidents or medical issues will occur, if a student has frequent accidents, he/she will be required to stay home until he/she is fully trained or the medical issue is resolved.
We encourage 12th grade students to apply that are new to the area or are scheduled to
move to the Fayetteville region. We generally do not accept applications for seniors from local
schools that are seeking to transfer, unless there are compelling, extenuating
We offer students the opportunity to re-class if it is academically beneficial to the student.
