We feel the weight of your decision…and its influence.

Our lower school is a private, Christian elementary school in Roanoke, VA.

We’ll do our part.

Few decisions feel as far-reaching as those concerning your child’s education. Sometimes even just finding a school that shares your goals can be intimidating. The truth is, you deserve a partner that you can trust. We would never presume that Faith Christian School is the best fit for every family, but we would invite you to simply consider FCS. Whether you choose Faith or not, we want to help you make the right choice for your child. We’ll do our part.

The goal of our teachers, staff, and faculty is to provide a Christian environment where each child is known and loved. Our joy comes from watching students reach their full potential. We prioritize safety and security, in both the physical and emotional sense. We seek to provide an affordable experience that deepens your child’s love of learning.

With over 20 years of success in preparing students for college and for life, we’d love for you to consider Faith Christian School.

“We couldn’t have made a better choice.”

– Alan and Tori Hayes

Lower School Curriculum

Curriculum must embrace all of the innate, God-given attributes in children…a desire to discover and to learn, an endless curiosity, an open heart and mind, and a soul to be gently-formed in the image of God. Your child’s education at this critical stage should be inviting and fun and will nurture, encourage, and inspire your students even beyond graduation.

Visiting any school will provide the clearest picture of how to answer the question all parents must ask, “Which school presents the greatest prospects for helping my children become all God intended them to be?”

“We found a school that supports our goals for our children.”

– Bob and Joyce Childress

We want to set the foundation for a lifetime of learning.

The early years are some of the most important times in the life of every child. Our Lower School sets the stage for joy and enthusiasm that brightly colors each day in the classroom. Our Christian Classical model of education believes that each and every child has a God-given love of learning, a relentless curiosity, a never-ending list of questions, and an ability to reason.

In even a brief visit to our classrooms, you will see children excited about learning. With smaller class sizes and caring, handpicked teachers, we partner with parents to prepare each unique child for the future. Students thrive as faculty inspire and encourage the gifts and talents of each one.

We are taking the Coronavirus threat very seriously. Read the letter from our head of school, Peter Baur.
