Iowa Achievment Tests

Life is full of "pop quizzes" and tests, and, at FCS, we are no different. Although students are subjected to tests in their various classes, we also test the students every year, using the Iowa Achievement Test. After the tests are administered in the spring, they are graded and the scores are compared to other Christian schools as well as public schools. The students in our school typically score well above the national average on this test.

Class Rankings 

Each year the North Carolina Christian School Association releases an achievement test school ranking report for its member schools.   The ranking report compares Faith Christian School against the other member schools of the association with how the school performed on the Stanford Achievement test. Our association consists of about 60 Christian schools statewide.  The achievement test is given each April here at Faith.  After reviewing the rankings, we are excited to report to you some of the results.  Each result reflects how a particular grade did in the whole state.  For example 3rd grade was 10th in the state in reading.  Thus, meaning our third grade had the 10th highest ranking among all 3rd grade classes in our association.

Below are the results of the ranking report
