    The Fairfax Christian School is a wonderful place with caring teachers and administrators. We have seen a positive difference with my children and they have been a great influence on our whole family. Thank you!

    Our children love the Fairfax Christian School. The teachers and administration are really the best. The results are amazing. When my children are around public school children the same age their level of knowledge and understanding of the world stands out. They just know a lot more and can apply it. I can not thank Fairfax Christian School enough.

    This is an awesome school. Their goal is to create scholars and the administration and the teachers have the highest standards -- and the results to show it! They really challenge the students but are also kind and caring.

    This school is not a typical Christian School with cheap tuition and so-so education. Academics and student safety are their top priorities and they've been sending students to quality universities for a very long time. The school has students from 20+ countries. Great school to build up college resume if your child is getting lost in the crowd in bigger public / private schools. Absolutely recommended for anyone!

    This is a nice school with very caring teachers and reliable bus service. We had two boys there who got a solid grounding in early education reading and math. Non-denominational. It runs K through 12th grade and I have suggested parents check it out when they are looking for a school at al levels. This is probably not for everyone but it lives up to the Christian part. No bad language or meanness that we ever saw among the children or by the staff and which becomes a personal standard that the students adopt. Our boys have very happy memories and we appreciated a safe place and good education. Very sensible principal. NO PTA -- and no fundraising either.
