A PLACE FOR EVERY STUDENT WITHIN FAITH CHRISTIAN SCHOOL ATHLETICS

With a wide variety of sports offered from grades 6-12, there is a place for every student within Faith Christian School athletics. We are focused on shepherding each individual to their athletic potential. The participation in FCS athletics is about far more than physical challenges and accomplishments. It is about using the vehicle of athletics to discover one’s true identity in Jesus Christ and to be made “mature, and complete, not lacking anything”(James 1:4) as a result of these very tangible opportunities.

Athletics is one of the key components of a comprehensive Christ-Centered education at Faith Christian School. It is an opportunity to develop character that will prepare students physically, emotionally, and spiritually as part of the overall discipleship process. The purpose of this athletic program is to offer interscholastic sports which encourage our students to develop skills, responsibilities, commitment, teamwork, sportsmanship, and the promotion of a healthy lifestyle.
