Faith Christian School provides a challenging college preparatory program, and equips students for the world through relationships, learning, and service. We’re in Summerville for our first Cool School of the 2018-2019 school year.
Now in their 31st year, Faith Christian School provides a fun and engaging family environment for their two-hundred-fifty students in K3-12th grade. The non-denominational Christian school is a ministry of Faith Assembly of God. Students have chapel every Wednesday. Head of School David Freberg says, “Faith Christian School is a school that is very family oriented. Faith Christian School is a Cool School because you’re with family everyday, and it doesn’t get much better than that. We do a lot of service projects, definitely a priority for us, getting into the communities so the students see its a whole lot bigger than us. We’re here to serve others.” Every class has two service projects a year. Teacher Alicia Dickerson says, “At Faith Christian School, we believe that teaching students to serve when they’re young, will help them to know that they can serve when they get older as well.”
South Eastern University has a campus at FCS.
English teacher Maewin Vanhorn has taught at FCE eleven years. Her children also attend the school. Vanhorn says, “What I really appreciate the most is the family atmosphere, and the education that has that Biblical world view, as a teacher I can teach, as well as see that instilled in my own children.”
Students also take mission trips. Senior Daniel Brown says, “We’re just a cool family I think. I love the people. I love the family. I’ve been here since I was three years old, and just the connections I’ve made, and the people who have poured into my life, I wouldn’t be the same person if it were not for these people. They made me who I am. I believe when you come here, you’re getting the information, and also you are making relationships that are going to build you not only educationally, but build your character, and turn you into a better person.”
Faith Christian also has a successful sports program. Coming up Friday on News 2 Today, we’ll present Faith Christian School with our Cool School award.
