(5K - 6th Grade)
The curriculum is made up of the traditional basic courses taught from a distinctively Christian perspective to lay a foundation for the strong academic curriculum in the secondary school.
The courses include reading, spelling, grammar, literature, composition, handwriting, math, social studies, science, and Bible. Elementary students also have weekly classes in PE and classes in art and music.
FCS focuses on character development by emphasizing our Core Values: Excellence, Wisdom, Integrity, Humility, Prayer, Unity, and Zeal. Students in elementary school learn new character qualities throughout the school year. They learn the definition of the character quality, a Bible verse that highlights the quality and then learn to apply that quality in their lives.
(7th - 12th Grade)
Middle School and High School utilize block scheduling consisting of 90 minute classes. Two grading periods (quarters) are in each semester with both mid-term and final exams. Students are expected to take six classes each semester.
Courses include English, History, Science, Mathematics, Foreign Language (Spanish), Art, Drama, Computer, and Bible.
Most students participate in physical activity each day, either as a member of an athletic team, club sport, or as part of the Outdoor Education program.
The mission of FCS is rooted in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Through devotions, chapels, Bible studies, retreats, and volunteering, students have the opportunity to grow spiritually by building a solid foundation.

FCS's commitment to a creative, comprehensive college preparatory education has led us to develop our latest curricular advancement: STEAM. A collaborative interdisciplinary program that combines the best of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics and develops students' problem solving and critical thinking skills.
Outdoor Education takes students out of their comfort zones and immerses them in God's creation. OE excursions happen throughout the second semester and vary in length, difficulty, and skills according to grade level. These experiences develop technical skills like backpacking, cave exploration, and snow shoeing while challenging students to grow personally, trust each other, and apply perseverance and problem-solving.
