WHO WE ARE
Our Purpose and Philosophy...
FCS believes that children belong to God who has given the responsibility and authority for their care and education to their parents alone and that the interest of the state does not supersede that authority. Teaching our children at home gives us greater control over the character development of our children as well as providing individualized instruction for each child so they can learn at their own pace with their own learning styles. FCS believes that while we must live in this world we must not be of it. This makes embracing the traditional Christian beliefs about morality and sin, as well as the parental responsibility of care and instruction of children, a condition of participation in the nurturing and protective environment of FCS and its operation.
FCS files a private school affidavit with the State of California each year.
Permanent cumulative files will be maintained by FCS. These files are open for parents to view. FCS will send a request for transfer of records to the previous school in which the student was enrolled.
Records of attendance, student progress and other records required by law must be kept up to date. An online record keeping system will be set up when a family is new to the school.
The forms required are as follows:
Teacher qualifications (once)
Medical Liability Release (once)
California Immunization Record for 1st & 7th grades
School entry physical for 1st grade.
Statement of Faith (once)
Proposed Course of Study and Actual Course of Study
Progress Reports (Due at the end of each school year, by June 30th)
Attendance (to be updated monthly)
The field trip coordinator each year puts together a list of sponsored field trips that vary in distance and price. There are many different types available for our families to pick and choose with which they would like to participate. All field trips require prepayment. All field trips are first come first serve. Email announcements will be sent out to gather information for approximately how many families and students would like to participate and then a number will be booked based on the prompt response.
FCS hosts various parties throughout the year including: Harvest, Christmas, Valentine’s, & Easter.
