Why FCS


Our values set us apart.

Fredericksburg Christian School was founded by servant leaders. People that followed Christ’s example, and led their team with a heart for others, and an attitude of service. That same passion for leadership, built on character, drives our staff and faculty today. Two of our four core values are to be servant leaders, and to uphold integrity and transparency. From our invested teachers, to our strong athletics program, to our vibrant fine arts offerings, we’re educating Christian leaders. For life.

Strong Academics

We keep classes small. With an average of 18 students in each class, teachers have the opportunity to mentor every child. Lessons are hands-on and infused with technology. Our graduates go to college – more than 95%, in fact. Our students consistently beat the national average in SAT scores. We also offer thirteen AP courses, and encourage students to challenge themselves. Plus, our Leadership Institute allows students to grow and focus on the skills necessary for college and beyond.

Mentor Teachers

Our teachers are exceptional – not just because they hold advanced degrees. They are exceptional because they are invested in their students. They pray with them and lead them toward success. With genuine dedication, the average tenure is seven years. Representing sixty-eight different churches across the region, our teachers exemplify the non-denominational, Christ-centered environment of FCS. Students are mentored and shown how to fall in love with God.

Character Building

As an organization that represents over 166 churches, we find unity in Christ. Our Biblical beliefs anchor our decisions, both large and small. Weekly chapels provide a time of worship and teaching. It’s from a Christian perspective that we teach students how to think for themselves, and ask the important questions. Our parent-teacher partnership also allows teachers to enforce the values being taught at home. Our graduates leave with more than a diploma, they step out into the world with character, integrity, and compassion. They step out as leaders.

Full Athletics Program

Our athletics program is robust, with twenty-seven teams competing in twelve sports. Fall brings volleyball, soccer, field hockey, football, cheerleading, and cross country. Our winter sports include swimming and basketball, and in the spring there is baseball, softball, lacrosse, and golf. Plus, we provide summer sports camps for all ages.

Vibrant Fine Arts

Between art, band, orchestra, and choir – there is no shortage of fine arts education. Contrary to so many trends, we’ve continued to invest in music and arts education. Our Enduring Freedom Honor Band holds concerts throughout the year, and a theatrical play is presented in the fall and spring semesters. And, student art work has been displayed in the George W. Bush Presidential Library.

Parents Tell their FCS Story

“Teachers are Extremely Professional”

Watching the children interact with one another is amazing.

The combination of the love that the teachers show for the students and their certifications and credentials … they’re just extremely professional.

“Most Positive Influence in His Life”

Everywhere we went, we heard the name Fredericksburg Christian School … the reputation was there.

Other than his family and his church, it has been the single most positive influence in his life. No question.
