The secondary program of Faith Christian School offers 7th – 12th grade in a traditional, teacher-taught classroom. School begins at 8:20am with pledges, prayer, and devotions before embarking on the learning journey for the day.
We currently accept enrollments year-round depending on available space in the classroom. God has blessed our school with a wonderful group of students who are always excited to make new friends and make new students feel at home.
We hold our students to a high standard and encourage them in whatever ways possible to work to their highest God-given potential. Our classroom sizes keep the student-to-teacher ratio low. This provides our teachers the opportunity to give a lot of one-on-one attention and individualized teaching to each student. Our teachers are experienced, creative, and loving, and work hard to make learning fun!
Students attend a chapel service every week, and parents are also invited to attend these services. The high school worship team leads the music time, and a speaker is brought in each week to share God’s Word based on the year’s theme verse.
Parents play a vital role in our school as they volunteer to help with fundraisers, chaperone field trips, help with lunchroom supervision, and serve in the office.
- The junior high functions as a combined class, so 7th and 8th grade rotate curriculum each year. However, students are placed in math according to ability. Scheduled courses for junior high students at FCS prepare students for the rigors of high school. Each year junior high students have courses in Bible, English, science, math and social studies. Students participate in classes in art, music, study skills, computer, logic and keyboarding as well.
- On the high school level, four years of Bible, English, science and social studies are offered, as well as math courses from basic math to calculus. Numerous elective courses are also available which may include Spanish, French, Latin, New Testament Greek, computers, music, drama, art, yearbook, speech, band and physical education. Graduates leave FCS with a well-rounded and varied education.
FCS graduates have attended universities and colleges both in and out of the state of Arizona. Many have received academic scholarships and awards. Both the standardized testing and the college entrance exams have shown that FCS prepares students with the kind of excellent education most colleges are looking for.
- Sports – Faith Christian School is a charter member of AICS (Arizona Independent Christian Schools) and participates in athletic competitions with other Christian schools in the league. We offer men and women’s soccer, basketball, and volleyball as participation allows. There are not any tryouts for the team, as we like for all students to have the opportunity to participate in a sports program if they so desire.
- Student Leadership Council is an appointed group of young people who are encouraged to be leaders to the student body. The SLC plans events like a Christmas formal, fall and spring activities to encourage positive social interaction among the student body. They also sponsor various service projects throughout the year.
- Retreat – Each year kicks off with a retreat with the 7th-12th up north in the beautiful country of Prescott. Students are encouraged to attend as this is an important time to build friendships, worship, and have fun too!
- Spring Trip – Students work throughout the year to earn the privilege of going on the Spring Trip. We take them for a week to a location that is both educational and fun. We have spent time in Washington DC, southern Arizona, Catalina Island, and have many more trips in the works.
ACSI and school-wide meets
Faith Christian School students are given the opportunity to participate in the following ACSI activities each year: Spelling Bee, Math by Mail, and Art Festival. In addition, all students participate in school-wide activities including a Speech Meet and a Science Extravaganza.
Faith Christian School encourages student leadership by helping students find joy and fulfillment in genuine ministry to others. Student Leadership Council plans service projects throughout the year which involve students in significant, age-appropriate ministry opportunities.
