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!

The Fairfax Christian School is the perfect place for our children. The school focuses on academics. However, they have music, arts and even a championship winning flag football team!
