Homeschool


Let us support what you're doing.

CHIP – Christian Homeschool Instructional Partnership

Fredericksburg Christian School offers home-schooled students an opportunity to enroll in up to three upper school courses as regular Fredericksburg Christian School students.

Our Goals

We want to support and encourage parents as educators to fulfill their God-given responsibility for the education of their children. We are excited to offer resources, services, equipment, and books to assist homeschool families (Proverbs 22:6).

If a student’s schedule necessitates him/her staying after 4th period and he/she wishes to buy lunch, the student must enroll in the FCS prepaid lunch program.
