WE ARE ON A

MISSION

Since 1972, FACS has sought to offer quality education taught from a biblical worldview, contrasting to the anti-Christian culture in American public education. 

Since 1972, First Assembly Christian School has educated in a manner that is consistent with a biblical worldview so that students are prepared for college and are equipped to live for God’s glory. 

 

 

We strive continually to improve curricula and instruction, biblical worldview training, and technological capability in order to prepare students to live for God’s glory. 

 

 

 

  • Teaching from a biblical worldview promotes academic excellence, vision that is led by the Holy Spirit, moral courage, emotional balance, cultural understanding and physical fitness. 

  • Biblical truth is the strongest foundation for intellectual achievement. 

  • Jesus Christ is the preeminent in all facets of academic, fine arts and athletic education at FACS. 

  • Administrators, faculty and staff at FACS maintain a Christian witness and communicate biblical values to all students 

  • Students at FACS are viewed as unique individuals and are encouraged through resources available to develop their God-given talents and abilities. 

  • Student learning is a cooperative effort of FACS stakeholders including parents, students, faculty, staff, school board and community.
