Curriculum and Courses
The mission of Faith Christian School is to "educate and train." The word "education" means "to present a formalized curriculum." Faith Christian uses numerous curriculums to help meet the academic needs of the student. FCS seeks to find the best curriculum for each particular course and use it to help the students achieve their full potential.
The primary curriculum used by FCS is from Bob Jones University Press. With over eighty years of Christian educational experience, the BJU curriculum is among the nation's best.
FCS also uses the Saxon Math System, which centers around drill and the absolute mastery of basic math skills.
The elementary grades and the middle school classes use the Positive Action for Christ Bible curriculum. High School Bible uses BJUP and ACBC Bible teaching tools.

Faith Family Portal
The Faith Family Portal is established for every family in the school. The primary key to educational success is COMMUNICATION. Faith Christian School incorporates the Faith Family Portal to achieve the highest level of communication possible. Through this program, parents have
24 hour, seven days a week access to each of their student's grades, homework, calendar activities, sports schedules, and more.
Progress reports, report cards and parent letters are all delivered to each family via the portal.
