Summary

Fellowship Christian School is a Christ-centered, college preparatory, independent, non-denominational covenant school that serves students in grades PreK-12. Our vision for students includes the integration of a Biblical worldview into a curriculum where character, values and essential life skills are emphasized and modeled by a professional and dedicated faculty. This Christian philosophy of education is at the core of all areas of study. A rigorous academic program is offered including strong co-curricular offerings with successful athletic and fine arts programs. As a Christ-centered school, students are taught how to integrate Biblical truth and learning into their daily lives to impact the culture for Christ.

Fellowship Christian School nurtures and educates the whole child - heart, mind, body and soul - and provides a balanced, yet challenging college-preparatory curriculum that includes honors and Advanced Placement classes; 53 athletic teams; and an award-winning fine arts program encompassing visual, musical and theatrical skill development.

Encouraging a lifestyle of service is incorporated in elementary, middle and high school. Students have numerous opportunities to serve others in the name of Christ, whether nearby in Roswell and Atlanta or internationally in the Dominican Republic or Zambia.

School Verse: "For this reason also, since the day we heard of it, we have not ceased to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that you will walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects, bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all power, according to His glorious might, for the attaining of all steadfastness and patience; joyously giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in Light." Colossians 1:9-12


Mission statement

Partnering to inspire academic curiosity, impeccable character, and Christian leadership grounded in biblical truth.


Statement of faith

Fellowship Christian School was established in 1986 to assist Christian families in nurturing their children academically, spiritually, physically, and socially. As one of the school's foundational standards, the STATEMENT OF FAITH serves to formally acknowledge the theological basis of its educational philosophy and practices.

As a prerequisite for admission to FCS, we require that at least one parent agrees with and personally acknowledges this same doctrinal standard for his/her life and can express a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. In addition, it is expected that families seeking enrollment at FCS regularly attend a local church, which upholds the evangelical tradition expressed in the faith statement below.

The Bible, as originally given by God, is divinely inspired, infallible, entirely trustworthy, and the supreme authority in all matters of faith and practice.

There is one God, eternally existent in three persons - Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ was fully God, yet fully man, born of a virgin, and lived a sinless life, performing many miracles.

We acknowledge His substitutionary death, resurrection, ascension, and individual mediation for us, and eagerly await His personal return in power and glory.

Man is sinful and separated from God, and a reunion, called salvation, is possible only by faith in Jesus Christ, apart from works, through the regeneration of the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit indwells the believer and enables us to live a holy life and to witness and work for the Lord Jesus Christ.

All true believers are united by the Holy Spirit as the church, the Body of Christ.

Everyone will be resurrected - the saved to everlasting life, the unsaved to everlasting torment.
