Admissions

Thank you for your interest in Fayetteville Christian School. We hope that our website provides you with a good understanding of our ministry to students and their families in Northwest Arkansas.

THE FCS DIFFERENCE

Fayetteville Christian School is such a unique place!  The Lord has blessed this ministry throughout the years, since 1978.  There are so many qualities that set FCS apart from other schools.  These qualities derive from our guiding mission to “provide an affordable Christian education based upon the Bible, enabling our students to develop Christian character, to establish a sound academic foundation for their future, and to promote the Biblical worldview”.  Our uniqueness can be summed up in the following five ways:

AFFORDABILITY:

FCS diligently strives to provide families in NWA with a quality private school education that is truly affordable.  All of our qualified teachers volunteer their time as a ministry to the students and families we serve.  Many FCS families volunteer time to staff our programs and personnel needs.  These willing volunteers are truly the heartbeat of our school!  This model of volunteerism, along with a conservative budget, allows us to pass on the savings to you!  You can compare the cost of student enrollment below.  FCS is “NWA’s most affordable Christian education!”

The Influence of God’s Word:

Our curriculum integrates God’s Word throughout each subject and within each grade level.  FCS uses a combination of Bob Jones Press, ABeka Book, and other sources.  These curriculums are rigorous and integrate God’s Word and perspective.  Students have Bible classes and chapels that they attend.  The FCS curriculum combines sound academic standards and educational principles with Biblical truth.

Our Focus on Christian Character:

Due to our smaller classes, we can easily maintain a protective and nurturing environment within our school.  Our teachers model Christian character through their loving service to our students.  We also monitor the behavior of our students very carefully. Here at FCS, we seek to use teachable moments in building each child’s character from a Biblical perspective and approach.  As a school, we focus on monthly character words and learn scripture that address these valuable qualities that God desires from His children.

Proven Sound Academics:

Time and time again, FCS students soar!  Our seniors consistently outperform the Arkansas state averages each year.  The ACT Cooperation reported that over the past five years 83% of FCS Seniors are ready for College English whereas 60% of AR students are.  It also reported that 67% of FCS students are ready for College Algebra, and only 32% of AR Seniors got this rating.  That’s double the state average!  As you can see, our curriculum is ensuring FCS students are better prepared for college.  FCS also offers duel credit courses in partnership with NWACC.

 

 

Our annual standardized test scores have consistently shown that a majority of our 5-12 grade students are 2 grade levels above and beyond their public school peers.  We attribute this to the strong academic foundation they are building within our curriculum.  We are very proud of our students and their academic success!

Promotion of the Biblical Worldview

Our strong academic foundation, saturated in the Biblical perspective, and modeled by our loving staff allows our students to go into the world well-equipped in making a positive impact for Christ.
