Private Education

FACS-Logo-NewOUR MISSION. FACS exists to be an extension of the Christian family in training and developing the whole student for committed service to our Lord Jesus Christ through quality academic instruction, imparting Biblical values and providing activities designed to foster personal growth.

First Assembly Christian School was birthed in the fall of 1997 after much prayer, fear and trembling, and research. The calling simply became stronger than the resistance and thus by faith the school ministry began.

The vision clearly given by the Spirit of the Lord was to facilitate a Christ centered, Bible based academic institution for Christian families who have committed to “training up their children in the way they should go”, according to scriptures.

Since our inception, God has blessed and expanded this ministry. First year enrollment totaled 45 students in grades K-5 through 8th, and eleven years and two buildings later our current enrollment is almost 200. Our objective then and now is to provide an affordable, academic excelllent alternative education based on the values and standards of the Word of God.

FACS is a member of the Association of Christian Teachers and Schools.
