I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS SCHOOL!!!! I have been here since my sophomore year, and I would not want to be anywhere else. The people at this school have become my second family. The athletic program is spectacular and has blossomed over the years. Great teamwork and sportsmanship. This school has allowed me to pursue all of my dreams. God bless this great Academy.

We love Fort Bend Christian! Both of my kids have been at Fort Bend Christian since Kindergarten and Pre-K. When my oldest graduated from FBC, he was accepted into the college of his choice (100% of graduates are accepted into college!), he was academically well prepared for college and was able to receive several college scholarships. I have loved the small class sizes, the great Christian education, the teachers/staff who really care for the students and want them to succeed, and the family atmosphere. Both my boys were involved in athletics and the state-winning art program. I would highly recommend Fort Bend Christian!
