School Reviews

FCS has been a great school for my 2 elementary school children. I have seen them learn, grow, and flourish! The staff are all so loving and nurturing, my kids really feel at home at FCS! I really can''t say enough good things about the school!

Our child has been at FCS for 13 years (starting in Pre-K), and it has been such a blessing to partner with such a loving and dedicated faculty, staff and administration. It makes our jobs as parents so much easier when there is consistency with the teaching that they are receiving at school and what we are trying to accomplish at home. The quality of our educational experience has been excellent, as well as high quality athletics and social/ministry opportunities. We are confident that our child will be more than prepared for the next level of education as well as adulthood, and a large part of the credit belongs to FCS.

My daughter has gone to Fredericksburg Christian since preschool. She was very shy and was difficult to get her to come out of her shell. A year ago she was the flower girl for a wedding with a 150 people. My daughter threw flowers in the air while walking down the aisle and was a joy. She stood infront of everyone didn''t move and followed instructions from the minister. People couldn''t believe the difference in our daughter that wouldn''t come out from behind our legs now is an outgoing 2nd grader. Fredericksburg Christian has also exceeded our expectations in our daughter''s learning. I speak to other parents and our daughter is doing more spelling, reading, math, phonetics and sentence structure than her friends and family members of the same age. WE love the school and will continue to send her there through high school.

We love FCS! This is our 4th year at the school. We have a 3rd grader and a Pre-K 4 student. Everyone from the administration to the bus drivers has the heart of every student as their number one priority. In addition to an amazing education, starting in Pre-K3, they teach the importance of manners, obedience and self-control. They continue these lessons throughout the child''s education. I love sending my children to a school where the teachers genuinely care about them! There is no other school in the area quite like FCS!
