Our Goals
Our Goals For Each FCS Student

We desire to minister to the needs of the whole child and to promote his academic and intellectual progress, spiritual and moral growth, physical and social development, and future vocation.

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus
Philippians 2:5
Excel Academically

Academic excellence is not achieved through rote memorization. It is attained by initiating intelligent innovation in each young person.  Our low student-to-teacher ratio allows us to motivate children in a variety of ways, including mentoring, teaming students to encourage advancement, and double-tracking students in math and science in order to meet specific needs. Add in a robust fine arts curriculum that begins in the early elementary grades, and students begin to blossom and flourish.

At Faith Christian School we strive to:

  • Develop a mind-directed and not a feeling-directed life
  • Develop a positive reaction to life
  • Discover and develop individual aptitudes
  • Cultivate analytical thinking and a priority-directed life
  • Impart a command of common knowledge and skill
Grow Spiritually

Let the word of Christ richly dwell within you. —Colossians 3:16

"Christian" is more than our middle name. Our Christian spirituality is woven through every aspect of life at FCS. We worship God in praise and honor, but we also worship by putting our best effort forward in our daily work. That requires a measured, logical integration of faith and learning. The goal is to mentor our students to have a Christ-centered faith that is transformative and evidenced though a strong personal testimony.

At Faith Christian School we seek to:     

  • Lead each child to personal acceptance of Jesus Christ as Savior
  • Enrich the child's devotional life and to encourage students to make practical applications of Biblical principles learned through their devotions.
  • Develop a well-balanced and Christ-like personality
  • Develop within each student a Biblical worldview that sees all truth as God’s truth and all truth as unified rather than segmented
  • Promote a servant-leadership mentality that views one’s gifts as instruments to serve, not dominate others
  • Awaken a realization that God has a purpose and plan for each life
  • Instill a desire for knowledge, love and understanding of the Bible
  • Help students understand the blessings of choosing to please God and the consequences of choosing to please oneself
  • Install a sense of responsibility for the lost that will lead to a desire for creative and intelligent outreach
  • Realize and apply the knowledge and understanding that the Bible has the answers for life and godliness
Vocational Experience

Whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus. —Colossians 3:17

Matching students to careers and vocations does not begin with a high school diploma. We believe that integrating vocations throughout our curriculum helps to train our students to be successful, functioning members of society.

At Faith Christian School we desire to:

  • Equip students for real world challenges by helping them transition from high school to college
  • Prepare them to embrace stimulating careers
  • Teach students to have a servant heart in their communities and careers

Learn about J-Term, a 2-week period for students to gain unique experiences to help them develop skills and begin making informed vocation choices.

Develop Physically and Socially


Present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God...  —Romans 12:1

Our desire is to build character through competitive activities and teamwork. Intramural and IHSAA sports programs complement our creative, challenging, and rigorous physical education classes.

At Faith Christian School we strive to:   

  • Develop a respect for the body as a temple of the Holy Spirit
  • Teach intelligent care of the body
  • Encourage the yielding of the body as an instrument for God's use


For not one of us lives for himself. (Romans 14:7)

At Faith Christian School we seek to:

  • Instill loyalty to Jesus Christ in all things and at all times
  • Help the student understand his place and obligations in the family
  • Enable the student to realize his Christian responsibility for the welfare of every group to which he belongs
  • Awaken and foster missionary responsibility in the student toward all men
