Established in 1968, FCS has been passionate about providing a Christ-centered, Bible-based quality Christian education. What is happening in our culture today is widely believed to be the direct result of a progressive movement to remove Judeo-Christian values, and more specifically, Jesus Christ, from the educational experience of our young people. In our government schools our children no longer hear how the founding fathers drew upon the principles of God's Word to establish the most free and blessed nation in all of history. The truth is, Jesus is NOT allowed in the government school classroom, except in the hearts of the born again students and teachers who are in the classroom, but they are legally NOT allowed to share their faith. All of this, by the way, has happened since the 1925 "Scopes Monkey Trial" when biology teacher John T. Scopes was found guilty and fined for teaching evolution in his classroom in Dayton, Tennessee. Today, the reverse would be true.
It was these fact s, and the the two Supreme Court cases (Engel v. Vitale - 1962 & Abington v. Schempp - 1963) that removed prayer and Bible reading from the government school classrooms that gave birth to the modern Christian day school movement. Faith Christian School was one of the first of these Christian schools in North Carolina, opening its door s in 1968.
Since that time, the faculty and staff and sought to deliver a thorough quality education as well as teach and model a vibrant faith grounded in the Bible and dedicated to keeping Christ at the center of all classes and activities.
