FCS is a non-denominational school founded in 1988 serving Christian families of the East Valley. FCS operates with delegated parental authority to raise up disciples of Jesus Christ using a distinctively Christian Education from a historic reformed perspective.
We regard the Bible as God’s infallible Word, the only rule for faith and life. The Scriptures are the “spectacle” through which we view all of life. All teaching methods, philosophy of education, and administrative actions are rooted firmly in this view of the Bible.
FCS challenges students to grow as Christians and take their place as responsible members in the Kingdom of God through Bible classes, weekly chapel services, and daily interaction with Christian teachers and students.
FCS admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin, and does not discriminate on the basis of these in the administration of educational policies, scholarship programs, athletics, or hiring of staff.
We use the classical approach to education, encouraging students to be life-long learners. Our teaching methods emphasize more than learning facts. We place a high value on the development of learning skills necessary to continue self-education all their lives. We use the stages of the Trivium—Grammar, Logic and Rhetoric—as tools to accomplish this goal.

Academically, by becoming lifelong learners who have mastered the fundamental academic skills necessary to logically and competently defend the gospel and other truths both written and verbally when challenged.
Socially, by becoming servant-leaders, not influenced by the world and culture, discovering their God-purposed role in all aspects of their community according to a Christian world-and-life-view.
Physically, by caring for their bodies through physical fitness, good health habits, and wise use of the body as a temple of God to be used for Kingdom service.
Creatively, by appreciating the fine arts as an expression of God’s handiwork through creation and developing their gifts to glorify God.
Spiritually, by becoming true disciples and demonstrating the ability to use tools to discern truth, apply Christian worldview, and lead others to a saving knowledge of our Savior.
