Fine Arts are a priority at FRCS.  Vocal and Instrumental music, Drama, and Visual Art such as drawing and sketching, photography, yearbook graphic art and layout, and ceramics are just a few classes which are offered.  Each year, our students compete at the state and national level in over 50 categories, with several national rankings each year.
Graduates of FRCS have their choice of colleges and universities.  Our college preparatory curriculum prepares them extremely well for college courses, and, in fact, offers dual college enrollment so that students may graduate High School with a semester of college credits on their transcript.  FRCS graduates have a 100% college of choice acceptance rate.
Students in 8th and 12th grade participate in a semester class which results in a major research paper, 3-D model, speech presented to judges, creative writing piece, Biblical Reflection, Power Point presentation, and demonstration board.  FRCS has been honored several times for Excellence in Education through Oakland County for these research classes.
Each year, FRCS students and staff dedicate an entire day to community service.  This group served at Detroit Rescue Mission for the day.  In addition, graduates must complete a minimum of 40 hours of community service for graduation.
High school students take a Spiritual Life Retreat at the beginning of the year to regroup and focus on their spiritual life and reconnecting with friends.
