We have been very pleased with this school. Our kids have been students for 5 years now and we feel they are currently receiving great instruction and challenging academics from Christian teachers who are very knowledgeable in their respective subjects. They have also enjoyed participating in the different sports the school offers. I love that they have a great support system in their leaders and their teachers regularly take the time to make sure they understand what is being taught.

I transferred my boys from another private school in Slidell two years ago and what a difference it has made in our lives! FBCS definitely challenges them academically, but also gives them a well-rounded experience so they enjoy school again. FBCS makes learning enjoyable and is up to date with technology allowing parents to communicate with teachers and keep up with their children's grades and other activities. I looked into all the private schools in Slidell and by far FBCS is the most impressive!!!
