Is Community of Faith Christian School accredited?
We are members of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).
Are your faculty degreed?
Our teachers are degreed, state-certified, and professionally prepared to provide an excellent education. Many hold advanced degrees. Once hired, the faculty must continue professional development via educational workshops, seminars, and graduate courses.
Do you have to be a certain denomination to attend CFCS?
No, you do not have to be of a certain denomination to be accepted at CFCS. In fact, we currently have many churches and many denominations represented at CFCS among the student population as well as the faculty and staff. We welcome families of all denominations. We strongly encourage our families to be active members in the church of their choice.
What are the qualifications for acceptance?
Entrance tests are given to assist administration and parents with making an informed decision regarding academic placement at CFCS. We give the Development Readiness Test to kindergarteners. The language and math sections of a standardized achievement test are given for grades 1st through 8th. If a student scores in the 60th percentile in these areas, he/she should be able to maintain at least a passing average in our courses. Students scoring in the 90th percentile should be able to maintain good to above average grades in our classes. We do not require entrance testing for PreKindergarten students, but we do require that they be potty-trained before the first day of school.
Our goal is to fill CFCS with strong Christian families. At least one parent must have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and believe in Him as Lord and Savior. The student must have a strong desire to be at CFCS and have no history of major discipline problems. Parents of all applicants will be interviewed by the Principal.
Do you only accept children who score high on the testing?
Although we have a rigorous course of study for our students, we will accept students who score below 60th percentile, with the understanding that other support may be required (i.e. tutoring, academic therapy, speech therapy, etc.) We tailor lessons for these students to help them catch up and come up with a plan that works best for the student. We have students here at all levels academically. Our goal is to help each student to achieve their personal best. It is crucial for parents to understand that for these students to succeed, parental involvement is a must. It’s a team effort between the student, teacher and parent. Our teachers are excellent at working with children who are behind but they must have your support.
Do you have an athletic program?
Yes, we offer volleyball, basketball, and track and field.
Do you have a fine arts program?
Absolutely! One of the finest! We offer art, drama, choir, choreography, and yearbook. Our students have won many awards for their art. Every year we get requests from people to purchase some of our art. We have built a great reputation in our community with productions like “Joseph and His Twelve Brothers”, “Anne Frank”, and “The Nifty Fifties” musicals. Our yearbook staff is very creative and produces a very professional yearbook every year.
Do you have a hot lunch program?
We offer hot lunches to students three times a week. Menu and lunch orders are available online via RenWeb.
