School Notes

  • Children come to school with a love and trust that is normally shared only with the parent. That love and trust must be fostered and protected in any setting that becomes a substitute for the home. Our purpose at Fair Haven Christian is to do just that. We provide the warmth and personal touch, along with supplementing the home with the Biblical training that your child needs. We maintain that we are not a substitute for the Christian home, rather a supplemental tool to be used by Christian families. Our philosophy is to provide an exciting, well-rounded education with a focus on self control, respect for these United States, and Biblical morality. Our main goal is to train our students not only mentally, through rigorous curriculum, but also spiritually, by conforming to the image of Christ. We have found that this balanced approach gives our students confidence in their ability to defend their Christian Faith while acquiring the skills necessary to succeed at new experiences and challenges that they may face in their bright future.
