School Reviews

My son is a senior at Florence Christian School (FCS) and has attended the school since 4K. We initially learned about FCS because we had a family that attended Florence Christian School and we were impressed with what we saw. We wanted our son to have an excellent education while being in a Christian environment. We also liked the fact that the school is large enough for sports teams and class sizes sufficient that kids learn social skills. We have been delighted with our experience throughout our son's time at Florence Christian School. We are impressed with the education he received and feel that the school has prepared him well for college and life. We are also pleased with the values that the school has instilled and reinforced. We cannot say enough good things about the school, and we highly recommend Florence Christian School.

FCS maintains a strong academic curriculum that incorporates Christian values. High school students take AP Biology, Calculus, or enroll in dual credit classes. They encourage all students to take part in extracurricular activities. The sports program is defined by hard work and Christian character. I can not say enough about the positive environment at FCS. Just schedule a tour and check it out.

My husband was in the first graduating class at FCS and our two children are both alumni. Through the years we have seen the school grow and develop into a place where children are educated to develop a biblical worldview as well as critical thinking skills. The school strives to support families from preschool through high school. The cost compared to other institutions is reasonable and the family atmosphere is very inviting. The school has a sports program for both male and female, fine arts and additional activities.
