About

Join us for our Season of Giving!

Last year, we were amazed at your generosity!

With all of the unexpected expenses that COVID created, it could have caused financial hardships here at FCS but instead, because of YOU, we were able to continue to provide an excellent Christian education for our students. This year, we’ve been able to offer new courses, expand our classroom spaces, hire new faculty and staff, and even create more experiences for your students and an additional 250 new students!

On Tuesday, November 30, 2021, students, faculty, staff, and friends are coming together to kick off the end of year season of giving campaign by making a gift to FCS on Giving Tuesday. Last year, we raised $96,570 from 226 donors. This year, we’re aiming even higher with a goal of $100,000!

THANK YOU TIVC

Thank you to TIVC for their generous gift to FCS.
“TIVC is very thankful for FCS and the community it inspires. FCS is the framework about which the truth of God’s foundation is laid in young lives. Year by year, the staff, administration, and faculty of FCS positively impact the trajectory of countless lives for the glory of God. Their sacrifice and devotion to the students, and the institution itself that is FCS, must be supported, preserved, and expanded. We are humbled and grateful to do a small part to support the mission of FCS to educate and promote the gospel of Jesus Christ.”

$3,000 Donahoe Family Match Gift is LIVE!

 "As the admissions director, I am blessed to be able to work with families who are seeking the type of Christian environment that FCS offers. They want their children to have the opportunity to grow as scholars, and in their relationships with Christ. My husband and I see just how much our own children benefit from being at FCS. The annual fund helps ensure this type of education stays affordable for our current families and for the families to come. We hope other families will join us in supporting this vision."

Thank you Trible Family!

"This is our first year at FCS, and our youngest two children attend the Lower School and the Upper School. We gave to FCS because we have been so grateful for the Christian foundation that FCS has given. Following the pandemic closures, which kept them from full-time school and from church, we found each of them unsettled and, to us, unsteady in their academics. By focusing classes and weeks around Christian studies, FCS has helped return to them their sense of purpose. With that basis, both of them have returned to working hard in their subjects, and are proud of themselves for keeping up with FCS's strong academic program. We are also grateful that our high schooler could play basketball this winter as a Lady Eagle, and look forward to sports camp for our 4th grader next summer!"

We love FCS and are so thankful for everyone there who serves our family!"

$5,000 Carnahan Family Match Gift is LIVE

"We are fully committed to Christian education in our culture today and want to do all we can to support it."

Mrs. Carnahan retired last year from Immanuel Christian School (ICS) where she worked in admissions and administration for 25 years. All of their grandchildren attended ICS at some point but now FCS has a few of their grandchildren here since they moved to Fredericksburg.

A Christian school education is near and dear to the Carnahan family which is why they are offering a $5,000 match gift. They are encouraging other grandparents to give as well!

Thank you Mrs. Skinner

"I believe in the ministry of FCS. I believe in teaching children the truth of God's Word and how that impacts everything -- what we think, say, & do. There just isn't anything more important that we can do for the next generation than to teach them the Gospel Truth. Academics come second."

Thank you Kennedy Family!

"About 6 years ago we were blessed with the opportunity to send our kids to FCS. At that time our two oldest children transitioned from public school and simply put, saying they thrived is an understatement. The Christian environment and learning experience was life changing. Our youngest child has attended since kindergarten. We are so grateful to God for the FCS community and honored to be a part of it."

Thank you Mrs. Stanley!

Everyone at FCS knows and loves Marie Stanley!

What you may not know is that Marie has faithfully served at FCS for over 35 years, first as a volunteer and then as a staff member.

Marie says, "I give today in loving memory and in honor of Gary and Andy Foss. They had a calling and vision from God to start Fredericksburg Christian School in 1979 and were faithful to serve with excellence. Gary and Andy were a couple who loved the Lord, loved their staff, and loved each student. They walked with grace, humility, compassion and integrity and are dearly missed by all who knew them. I am so thankful for the legacy that continues today at FCS."

Thank you Bardwell Family!

"When relocating to Fredericksburg in 2020, finding a great school for our daughter, Ana, was a top priority. We are so thankful that we were led to FCS. From the moment of reading the following statement on the website, we knew FCS was the right school for Ana. The words, "Raising Christian leaders in an atmosphere of academic and spiritual excellence" and "We serve in partnership with parents" spoke to our hearts. Then, after reading the "Statement of Faith" it confirmed our need to visit and we are so pleased with our decision to have Ana attend FCS. Our family has experienced God's grace in so many ways and bringing us to FCS was just one more of his blessings. Ana is so happy here and I couldn't be any more pleased with the faith filled workplace. Daily, you feel our creator's presence and see his word in the actions of everyone here. Giving back to FCS is an easy decision when you consider all that FCS gives our children. I hope all parents agree with us and will consider giving to our amazing school!"

Thank you Marshall Family!

"Our family has been truly thankful and blessed that the Lord sent us to FCS 20 years ago. We graduated our last of four in 2021. Christian education has proven to truly be a large part in our family's walk with the Lord. Even when the finances got tight, the Lord mad sure we were provided with the means to continue to be ministered to by the FCS staff family. In today's society, it is even more important to teach our children the Word every day. We were confident that when we dropped our children at school, they were surrounded by the Lord's people and His hand was upon them.

I get the privilege of being on staff and have truly felt that the staff at FCS is not only family, but sisters and brothers in Christ. Thank you FCS and our founders for always being there for our family. We love all of you."
