High School Academics

High School Academics


A variety of curriculum is used in the high school. When a curriculum from a publisher other than Abeka is used in the middle school and high school, it is always examined as to quality and content.  Curriculum is chosen to meet the needs of the students and the school.

Learning Expectations

Even though uniforms and textbooks vary from grade to grade, there is a core set of values which FCS attempts to instill into the life of every student enrolled at the school. While a student will be exposed to these values at every grade level, a graduate of the school who has attended multiple years of instruction will often be the best example of these values.
