Our Daughter attended FLCS from 6th grade - Graduation. We can honestly say the Lord directed us to the BEST Christian School ever! This school first and foremost guides our children towards the Lord and His ways. Their principles and teachings are like none other. The small class sizes along with the best Teachers have equipped our daughter with all the essentials to pursue her education and conduct herself in a way that is pleasing to the Lord. Their high academic standards along with a focus on sports are the main factor our daughter was accepted at 5 Universities and Colleges and now attends Vanguard University. If you are considering this school for your child, look nowhere else as FLCS has everything you could ever want for your Child at this School. Jesus is definitely present at this School.

Our daughter attended FLCS 8th through 12th grades. She benefited from the small class size and teachers who know all their students. There are opportunities for service, sports, student government, and excellence in learning. Critical thinking skills are integrated into all academics and prepare students from a small private school in a country setting to leap into advanced education if that is their goal. Our daughter received multiple academic scholarships to incredible Christian and secular universities. She was well equipped from a secular worldview-point as well as having developed a solid Christian worldview that has taken her into life!

My daughter attended FLC from 8th grade to graduation. She had been diagnosed with a learning disability in public school and was afforded reasonable accommodations only after a cumbersome process. Upon transfer to FLC, she was given any accommodation necessary, we received weekly progress reports and communication with teachers. She excelled at her sport and because of the academic attention by staff, she went on to play her sport at college.

Our children's education is a critical concern. That's why we elected to send our kids to private school in the first place. However, this COVID-19 virus is controlling everything. And it will continue to do so indefinitely until we have vaccines to protect us. With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
If you are thinking about private school for your child in the aftermath of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, you should exercise even more due diligence than you usually would. More here.
