    Both of my children benefited from the academic excellence love and guidance during their time at Fayetteville Christian School. There are several private schools to chose from in the Fayetteville and surrounding area; however I feel that FCS is the best choice. If you are looking for a school that will help you instill a biblical worldview and sense of community in your child. My children have both graduated from FCS and went on to realize much success. They both have thanked us for the sacrifice we made of paying for their education rather than opting to send them to public school. They both love FCS and speak fondly of the school their teachers and time spent there. We are so thankful to the administration the faculty and staff for your unending dedication and love you showed our children. Keep fighting the good fight!!!

    Hahahaaa i have read all the reviews and i am with the MAJORITY! You will never find a perfect school for your child(ren) nor perfect leaders and teachers. that being said if you want to know if FCS can give you a quality education a biblical view Vs the World view standards that are in agreement with yours and a good partnership to help you give your kids quality training and opportunities...take a look at their alumni- teachers nurses doctors and other positions in the medical fields counselors social workers administrators pastors missionaries West Point Grads ROTC GRads Soldiers both NCOs and Officers business owners Artists Chefs...on and on. in addition to quality education the Athletic Dept and the Music Dept the Electives offered help nurture and grow the giftings and interest of their students. Teachers are approachable and are willing and interested in helping students and working with parents. we have Administration and teachers praying daily for the school and students. a Dad and Mom's prayer group. The corrective action taken in situations are handle appropriately. Its rarely perfect in correcting students. FCS is not for every family-pray about.

    FCS is a great school. Our children have attended for 8 years. The teachers and administration love the Lord and provide an environment of spiritual and academic excellence. The opportunities our children have had through mission projects and real life spiritual application has been a blessing. We appreciate the partnership we have experienced with the school. The faculty and administration have always been approachable and sincere. Schools are like families; they all have their ups and downs but FCS is the real deal. We are proud to be a member of this family!

    As the parent of two high schoolers I cannot say enough about what a great school FCS is. The standards that we hold for our children at home are the same as those set by the school. Our students are challenged academically as well as having many opportunities to explore extra curricular activities in both sports & the arts. My children's teachers are amazing. The meet & exceed all academic standards of being a great educator while also being totally accessible & so easy to talk to. I know that they love my children & want the best for them. They as well as the administration are educating them for today to prepare them for the future both academically & spiritually. We could have chosen any private school in Fay't that we wanted. FCS felt like family to us. We are home & happy about it!

    Hahahaaa i have read all the reviews so far and the majority of the reviews are spot on rating 4-5 stars. No school is perfect nor the people leading it nor the employees but what this school offers is stability quality education biblically based in consideration of a world view and teachers that pray for their students. you want to know the quality of education they offer look at their alumni-doctors nurses West point grads ROTC grads enlisted military-serving to defend our freedoms counselors pastors missionaries teachers administrators managers builders business owners social workers...on and on. students are encouraged and challenged at this school by the curriculum. students that struggle- there are resources in place to help them. Kids need structure and correction is given appropriately. the athletic dept and electives offered nurture and grow the students gifts and abilities. As do the reiviews on this site the positives far outway the negatives. i believe the majority ruling on these reviews. My kids are a product of the influence of an education at FCS partnered with our parenting at home.

    I am a parent and employee of FCS. My kids love FCS and thrive academically. The teachers have high standards and motivate students to do their best. Of course there are students who misbehave including mine from time to time. I have found the administration to be just and fair and to give discipline that is fair and reasonable. I know some parents get upset when told their kids did something wrong and then want to blame to school but I am not one of those parents. I know my kids mess up from time to time... I am thankful for a school staff that cares enough to hold them accountable. Our kids will graduate from the school!

    I have had children at FCS for the past 13 years and it has been a wonderful experience. Any time I need to speak with a teacher about a concern they reply to my concern in a swift manner. I love how God is present in all aspects of the school.

    I have been a teacher at Fayetteville Christian for 6 years and I have loved being a part of this ministry. This is a very family-oriented school. I have been so appreciative of the support and encouragement I have received from the administration and families in the school. The administration works diligently to make improvements to curriculum technology and policies so we can meet the needs of all of our students. I am constantly being challenged to become a better teacher. I am so thankful God brought me to FCS!

    As a parent and having worked for FCS the success of 27 years along with the consistent high academic achievement of graduates speaks to the level of excellence expected from the faculty and staff. Add to the mix that every employee teacher and staff member pours into the spiritual lives of each student and it is evident that Christ is at the center of life at Fayetteville Christian School. Research ACSI standards by whom FCS is accredited visit the campus for a tour and pray for guidance as you seek God's will for your family. Discern truth from untruth as you read all the reviews and follow God's word to trust in Him with all your heart leaning not on your own understanding. In every way acknowledge Him. He is faithful to direct your path. Proverbs 3 5 6

    I want to congratulate FCS for a successful 28th school year. I praise them for the family atmosphere that has been created and maintained. Being located in a military town teachers come and go more often then usual. The experienced administration has no problem acquiring the talent needed for this college prep institution. FCS is second to none on keeping up with the latest educational and technological tools and equipment. It improves its' facilities and sports fields as needed to provide a big school atmosphere with a small town feel. I recommend this school often to my coworkers on Ft Bragg and highly recommend FCS to you.

    After spending 13 years at FCS as a student graduating in 2011 and returning during my summers back from college to help out it is fair to say that I have spent a lot of time at FCS. I have seen and experienced it as a student and alumna and am more than impressed with so many aspects. First the focus on teaching students about God's love and Word is the most important part of the mission of the school as it should be. The faculty and staff exemplify genuine love for the students and find it a privilege and great responsibility to prepare the students spiritually academically and socially. As I prepare to enter my senior year of college I find myself looking back on my FCS experience with great appreciation. From the spiritual development I received especially through my senior mission trip to Zambia Africa and personal discipleship to the academic knowledge I gained I don't think I could have had a better experience. I also greatly appreciate the numerous extracurricular and athletic opportunities I had and the great relationships I formed with teachers and staff which I still hold. Now in college I feel I can attribute a lot of my success to all I learned at FCS.

    I had my son enrolled in FCS for pre-k and I can't express how much I love this school. The teachers are so involved with each child. They are very affectionate and caring. I love the fact that my son learned so much as well as learning about God. One day my son bump his head and even though he was ok his teacher called me just to inform me that he bumped his head. They go above and beyond. I would definitely recommend this school to anyone looking for a Christian private school!

    I'm currently a junior and I been at this school for 3 years and I can't explain how great this school is. When I first arrived at this school my Freshman year I was shy and I didn't know anyone but everyone was nice and welcoming. The classes are challenging and the teachers are helpful you just have to go to them and ask. I believe this school is preparing me for college and doing a great job at doing so. My relationship with God has grown so much by just being around the teachers and students. Like any other school this school is not perfect but it does strive to be.

    This school is wonderful. My kids love coming here. They are learning material above grade level and prompted to learn more about their faith. We have been VERY peased.

    I have three kids in this school. One in third grade one in seventh grade and one a Junior. As a military family we have gone to lots of schools due to military moves. Of all the schools my kids have attended I can honestly say this is our favorite one. The quality of teachers and education is top notch. My junior is being well prepared for college next year with AP classes. My seventh grader is the one who has the most trouble with all the moving and making new friends he has told me that he felt that the kids here were kinder and more accepting of him as a new student and that he feels great about having so many friends at FCS. This is a huge blessing for us! I love the teachers at this school they care about the character of their students as much as they care about their scholastic achievements. FCS has been the best part of moving to the Ft Bragg area for us and I would highly recommend it to anyone with any age children. I'm so thankful for it!!

    I have been to a few Christian schools since we move around with the military. We absolutely love this school. We never want to leave it. Our kids thrive here and we love the teachers and admin. Everyone is warm and welcoming and genuinely love and care for my kids. My kids are getting a wonderful God centered and very rigorous academic education

    I have taught at this school for several years. The heart of this school is wonderful. It is a grace oriented school where kids are encouraged to grow in their faith and love of The Lord. It has very strong academics--- my own children have thrived here and have been well-prepared for college. I do not agree with the one post that the admin is driven by money. FCS keeps our tuition low so that families can afford to attend. But if people don't pay their bills then unfortunately cannot stay enrolled. The overwhelming majority of staff absolutely loves our jobs and the ministry of FCS and we wouldn't want to teach anywhere else.

    I almost cried when reading some of the reviews on here! I am a single mother of 2 kids that now attend FCS. I can tell you that this school has been a great blessing to me and my children. After home schooling for 7 years I had to find a school that would help my children grow and learn in a Christ centered atmosphere. My children walked into school and instantly became part of a family! The teachers all got together with me and had a group meeting on what they could do to help me and my kids. They prayed before and after the meeting. The principle took quick action in helping my son through a rough time in his life where I felt even my church had let me down. The bible teacher has reached out to my son and made a huge difference in his life on and off campus. I have gone to almost all the football games and I can tell you I have seen where our coaches have taught more than just the game but how to be the better man on the field as well. I love the school and feel blessed to have the honor of calling FCS home. They aren't about money but they need it to keep the doors open. Respect discipline love and Jesus are taught at this school and I recommend this FCS. GO WARRIORS!

    I have a Grandchild that has attended FCS since Kindergarten (Daycare as well). Her learning skills are very astonishing! I have had no bad experiences with any teachers and Staff and was shocked when reading reviews! Several were way off base but one that stood out was way far from the truth......My Grandchild has been through a different teacher each grade (just like any other school) I have not experienced any great amount of turnovers! (?) At the beginning of the school year I have always been greeted with a prayful Teacher and one who prays with my child in times of trouble and for other students who maybe out sick. My Grandchilds prayer life is awesome and is way better then mines and often teaches me a new direction in prayer. I feel bad for parents who claim to have had a bad experience so therefore I pray the Lord continues to look over you and your loved one but I also pray you and your child never loose the Faith and trust in Gods Will! I am sure I speak for FCS we pray for those troubled and continue to keep prayer over you and your family! GOD BLESS!
