We sent all 3 of our sons to FACS. The boys all had positive experiences, all were active in sports, and all graduated on time with multiple college scholarships. Well worth the tuition. Godly men and women teaching at this fine school.

My three sons received a great education at FACS, went to college on scholarship, and are successful young adults. More important to me, their teachers and coaches poured into their lives in a way that could only be described as discipleship.
