I went to school here for preK through 12th and have returned to place my own children here. It is a fabulous school that promotes strong academics but places emphasis on preparing children to become Christian leaders with a Christian worldview.

We have been at Fayetteville Christian School for 11 years. My kids love it and so do I. Teachers and staff are kind and loving. I get to go to work everyday knowing that my kids are safe, happy and getting a great education. They are not only being prepared for college, but prepared for life!

Fayetteville Christian is a great school for leadership and Christian based education. My daughter has been here for 4 years and we love it. The teachers, and coaches are leaders and take really good care of every student. Education at FCS is high quality and very informative. The athletics are 1st class with the coaching staff taking the extra time to provide knowledge of their respective sport. They (coaches) work really hard to help the kids earn oportunities to play at the college level. Great school!!!!! GO WARRIORS

A comprehensive approach with the teacher, educational assistants, outside programs integrated into the classroom curriculum, i.e LIPS, Counseling, private musical instrument lessons, sports, dance and many more along with the principals at the different levels and the other teachers. My children receive a complete "community" approach which enables the varying gifts and expertise to be applied most effectively-unlike the "cookie cutter" state standardized approach in the public sector and other private schools, as well. As a working mother, my children would not have the privilege of accessing these many facets of educational and/or extracurricular activities that make school much more intrinsic for the student. Education is an expense regardless of public or private-you pay in some form or another; however, one must evaluate-"What is my child's education/future/college opportunities/character and community ownership worth?" We are on a very tight budget and we choose to make many sacrifices in order to accommodate and fully engage all possibilities presented for our children's future. God is good and he always seems to provide.

Our son is in his second year at Fayetteville Christian School. Both my wife and I believe our son is getting a quality well rounded education. I've attended several of the functions that the school has held and I can attest to the active involvement of the parents who have chosen to send their children to this school. To me that's a great sign, as I firmly believe that if the parents care, then the quality of education will be high as teachers can focus on teaching and not babysitting.
