When you think about the best learning experience for your child, what comes to mind?

  • An outstanding, faith-based education …
  • A school with an extensive roster of athletic teams, fine arts offerings, and other exciting extracurriculars …
  • Friendships, faculty mentoring, and relational learning …

At Fredericksburg Christian School, we want the same things you do for your child — a strong start in life, an excellent education, and a desire to bless and serve others. We’re raising Christian leaders in an atmosphere of academic and spiritual excellence, and we want to partner with parents in this important work.

That’s why we’ve designed our admissions process to give families a chance to become familiar with our facilities, our staff, and our Christ-centered approach to hands-on education at Fredericksburg Christian School. We want to get to know your family as you learn more about our school and decide if we’re the right partner in your child’s education.

We serve families when life is changing…

As a parent, you know how quickly life can change. Perhaps you thought you would be homeschooling for the rest of your child’s life. For others, maybe you thought public school was always the best option, but things have changed. If you’re a military family, life is constantly in flux. 

At Fredericksburg Christian School, our goal is to help families feel at home by assisting your kids academically, spiritually, and emotionally through their transition into a new school and student body. See how we link arms with homeschool, public school, and military families.


Public School


Here are just a few reasons why families like yours have chosen Fredericksburg Christian:

Family Values

Alignment between the home and school is important at every stage of your child’s learning. You want to know that the lessons you are teaching at home are being reinforced — not deconstructed — during the school day. Our core values and Biblical beliefs shape everything we do at FCS.

Servant Leadership

We want our students and alumni to influence the world as Christians who lead with character, integrity, and compassion. Our teachers model this with intentionality and create daily, weekly, and annual opportunities for students to serve others in our local and international communities. 

Joy-Filled Learning

Whether your child is in preschool or a rising senior, we want them to feel excited about learning. To accomplish this, we believe each child needs to receive individualized support so they are appropriately challenged to grow talents and close learning gaps. With small class sizes, your child will feel known and encouraged at FCS.

“Having five kids at FCS, it seemed only fitting to put my education degree to use. I have loved teaching my kindergarten buddies the last couple years. What more can I ask for, watching my own kiddos thrive in this God-fearing learning environment while teaching the next generation the free gift of Jesus on a daily basis? ”
