Why FCS?

Below are a few statistics that tell a little about what we are as an organization; but the real essence of who we are is found in the hearts of the teachers and staff and in the relationships they each have with the students at FCS. After all, the classroom, hallways and fields are where teaching, learning, coaching, training, mentoring and discipleship take place. Those investments of the lives of teachers and coaches into the lives of students are really the heart of Fredericksburg Christian… the things that impact for an eternity!
