We are a school and community of Christ followers united by and committed to our mission to be an extension of the Christian home in helping each child develop in mind, body, and spirit.

Our ultimate goal is to equip and prepare well-educated, mature Christian men and women to best fulfill Gods calling in their lives. We stand upon and are inspired by five core values which represent the heart and soul of FHCS. Fifth and foremost, we operate from a Biblical, Christ-centered foundation in all that we do. We are rigorously academic we place tremendous value on the quality of education we offer. Accordingly, we are proud of and grateful for our exceptional faculty who serve as strong and faithful educators for our students every day. We are fully committed to discipleship and Christ-centered mentorship as we realize learning through long-standing relationships with positive role models is critical to ongoing growth and maturity. Finally, we are independent and non-denominational, operating with complete institutional freedom as we strive to follow and honor the Lord alone.
