We have a daughter and son who have attended Friends Christian School since Preschool. They are now in 4th and 2nd Grade. We absolutely love this school and cannot say enough great things about it. The love that the teachers and staff show our kids is amazing! The education they receive is excellent! It does not only excel academically but also Godly! We love the weekly chapels, class parties, and field trips where parents are encouraged to attend. The Christmas Program and Spring Musical are the best of the best and so much fun! Our time in the FCS family has been worth every penny! Our kids have grown mentally, spiritually, physically, and emotionally every single year. We look forward to all our kids years with FCS through 8th Grade. FCS is truly a blessing!

We have 2 daughters that have been in the Friends Christian School family since Pre-K. Our daughters attended Little Friends Preschool, Friends Christian Elementary, and now attend Friends Christian Middle School. I LOVE this school! You will not find a more nurturing, loving environment for your child. I was immediately struck by how personally invested the staff is in every child. Trust me when I tell you, your child is loved here. The class sizes are small, the curriculum is excellent and the life lessons are God centered. It's also worth noting how much I appreciate that every morning our kids say the pledge of allegiance to our flag. They are taught love of country, Jesus and all people. The cost of their education at Friends is truly the best investment we have ever made.

I love this school so very much! The teachers have an incredible passion for what they teach and love these kids like no other. The class sizes are small--preschool, elementary, and middle school--and grades K-4 with a loving aid assisting the teacher. It's more than a great education. It's the teachers partnering with us parents to help teach our children to be honest, loyal, compassionate, and loving young people. I have yet to find another school that matches up to Friends in this area. Your family will love what Friends has to offer!

Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
Each state sets its own teacher certification requirements. While many private schools do not require you to be certified, it is in your best interests to obtain certification. This article includes contact information for state education offices so you can begin the process.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
