FCS uses several well-respected curricula, including A Beka, Pearson, Glencoe, Bob Jones, Shurley English (core English curriculum for 1st-8th grades), and Write Reflections.
Students in 1st through 8th all participate in an annual spelling bee. Student finalists have the opportunity to participate in regional and state-wide spelling bees.
The math olympics is an annual event where FCS student finalists compete against other Florida schools in problem solving and computation.
Themed Bible Curriculum
Students in 1st – 8th grade study the same major concepts in their Bible classes throughout the year. FCS encourages students to share what they are learning in Bible with their siblings and parents.
We encourage parent involvement in their student’s education and in our school. For interested parents, we offer a number of volunteer opportunities during enrichment days. Parents staff our library, teach P.E. classes, serve as guest-readers in the classroom, and teach special courses of interest such as art, Spanish, sewing, self defense, and cooking.
