School Notes

  • We believe there is not a better educational value in the area.  At FCS, students are challenged to achieve to the best of their ability.  They are engaged by professional, loving staff to think and explore.  Because Forcey is fully accredited by both the Association of Christian Schools International and the Middle States Association, we have undergone a thorough review of our program to capitalize on its strengths and eliminate its weaknesses.
