Faith Christian School

Faith Christian School is an independent, multi-denominational Christian classical school.
Teachers and board members embrace the historic tenets of biblical Christianity as presented in our Statement of Faith.
Beyond these doctrines, we respect and acknowledge the primacy of the family and local church and refer any demonstrated specific doctrinal questions to parents and local churches for clarification.
Faith Christian School provides a Christian and Classical education as a service to the Christian community of the Roanoke Valley.
As a Christian school, we are dedicated to teaching every discipline from a Christian worldview. Faith Christian School's classical emphasis defines one of the aims of our mission.
The goal of a well-trained mind is best served by the liberal arts curriculum rather than in a technical or vocational scheme.
As a result, because of this classical emphasis, we welcome those students capable of intensive study.
The mission of Faith Christian School is to provide a Christ-centered classical education of academic excellence, spiritual depth, and moral integrity which will prepare students for godly participation in their society and promote loyalty to God and country.

The standard of Godly excellence that Faith Christian School sets and meets, both academically and spiritually, is unmatched! Humbly grateful for the opportunity to send my child to a school of this caliber. Highly qualified, loving, and engaged, faculty, staff, and leadership! A rare opportunity!

This school has been our home away from home for over 11 years. The parents are great, faculty and staff are very supportive, and the students are caring and respectful. What these students get out of FCS is a great education that challenges them to think deeply, problem solve, dig deep wells in discussions and learn the skills it takes to make it beyond high school. With one of my children in college, graduating from Faith, I can truly say that she was ready for college, and excelled among her class mates with her studies because she was so prepared.
