My daughter started studying at Fairfax Christian School since last year. I was amazed by how much she learned in the school as a 1st grader, and how happy she was while learning. Nothing is better than a solid education in a loving and caring environment. We will definitely spend more time in this excellent school.

I believe the early years in a child's education are so important in their overall development and decided to move my daughter from the public school to a private school. My daughter started at Fairfax Christian School in the first grade and it was the best decision I ever made. The school offers a diverse and challenging academic program that promotes a positive atmosphere with an emphasis on respect, morals, and integrity. My daughter is now entering the 6th grade and I am planning for her to continue on all the way through high school. The teachers are excellent, caring, and approachable. I love the smaller classes and the individual attention she receives. The school provides a safe and welcoming environment. Overall, Fairfax Christian School is an outstanding school that develops well rounded kids who go on to be successful citizens. I would recommend this school to anyone without hesitation.

My experience with Fairfax Christian School has been an excellent one. I like the small class sizes, for students get more one on one with the teacher. The academics are great along with the extracurricular activities that are offered. I do like that we teach from a Christian perspective.

I've taught at several different schools in several different states, and this school is, by far, the best school of them all. The curriculum engages students, and the students excel. And, because of this, the school turns out many scholars. The directors of the school support various areas of study quite equally, whether it's language, math, history, or science, and they support extracurricular programs equally, whether it's sports, civics, or the fine arts. The staff is great to work with too.

The school focuses on academics and has a lot of personal attention. The small class sizes really encourage the students to interact and ask questions. The location in Northern Virginia also provides a lot of opportunities for fun field trips and other extracurriculars. I am very excited to see the new campus next year!

A daughter of mine and three grandchildren have attended FCS. There are some great teachers there and everything is taught from a tradiional Christian world view. Students memorize Bible verses and gain a solid understanding of Scripture, in addition to excelling academically. Sports and music programs are also available, in addition to a large variety of after school clubs and field trips.

Fairfax Christian School is an amazing place with caring teachers, great curriculum and high standards. It's a real gem in northern Virginia. The middle school band program is excellent. They also have a PGA pro on staff. Golf is available for the lower school students and they do a great job with it!
