A Word from Our New Acting HeadmasterFriends Christian School is a special place! For more than thirty years, it has been my privilege to be intimately acquainted with FCS. In the early 80s, I was first introduced to the school when I served as Head of School at a neighboring Christian school. A few years later, in 1987, I was called to serve as Regional Director of the Southern California/Southern Nevada Region for the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), a position I held for more than 25 years.
As we transitioned to this new position in North Orange County, my wife Lynette and I had a choice of many fine Christian schools in which to enroll our two young daughters. There was no debate. We chose Friends Christian School. Once enrolled in early elementary, our daughters remained and graduated from Friends. It was one of the best decisions we ever made as a family!Throughout my years as Regional Director, Friends Christian maintained a reputation throughout the region as an exemplary school… one that has consistently provided a strong, cutting-edge education within a solid Christian worldview framework. The FCS approach is strongly knowledge-based, innovative, and biblically centered. When searching for a school for your most precious gift, I encourage parents to consider five essential educational pillars...
- Teaching Biblical Truth
- Strong Program for Intellectual Development
- Christian Personnel
- Emphasis on Potential in Christ for Every Child
- Operational Integrity
For Christ followers, when any of the above five pillars are missing, your child’s education is compromised. Throughout my long association with Friends Christian School, I can say without hesitation that it is an institution of learning with the five pillars firmly embedded!Serving as your Acting Headmaster is an honor! I look forward to meeting you!
