FBCS offers a Quality Education in a Christian Environment and believes each student can reach his or her full potential with hard work, discipline, and encouragement.  As we prepare our students to be well-rounded, educated individuals, it is our greatest desire to teach our students how to have a personal relationship with the Lord and walk in His righteousness.  We look for staff members willing to join us in our goals.

If you feel the Lord leading you into Christian Education we hope you will fill out and submit an application.

We look forward to hearing from you.

About STEAM

FBCS offers a Robotics After School program for our students.  Robotics helps our students develop their computational thinking skills and teaches our students how to solve problems. Through robotics, FBCS students are challenged to use their knowledge to complete specific tasks such as designing and coding rovers and other machines to perform specific functions.  There is an annual Robotics competition to culminate the end of the semester’s after school program.

FBCS has an annual Steam Night for 3rd-6th grade students. This special event provides hands-on opportunities for our students to experiment, explore and understand how scientists use the world around us to imagine new things.

Our students have filled Love Banks with change to a total of $1522 for 2018, with a total collected in the last 2 years of $3703 – outfitting 988 orphaned children! Our students are amazing! Thank you for your compassionate heart!
