Welcome to Foothills Christian High
Thank you for your interest in the unique educational opportunity available at Foothills Christian High School. FCHS offers an exceptional blend of Christian classroom instruction coupled with independent study. Students attend classes in a normal class-to-class format three days per week (Tuesday through Thursday) to receive classroom interaction, instruction, and assignments for the entire week. On Mondays and Fridays students are engaged in independent study involving an online learning program. Families can utilize the tutorial option available for Monday and Friday to receive additional help.
Our Primary Goal
Most importantly, we offer our commitment to Christ and an opportunity for our student body to grow in their knowledge of God. Our Bible program includes weekly chapel services with a student-led worship band. Faculty and guest speakers bring a wealth of experience, challenging students to exercise and increase their faith. Every year students are required to take a Bible course that will facilitate their personal development and experience of the Lord Jesus.
FCHS is an accredited educational institution (WASC) registered with the State of California.
Enrollment at Foothills Christian High School is limited to those who pass the screening process. Students must respond to a series of questions with a short essay. Evaluation forms must also be submitted by their pastor or church leader as well as one from a current school teacher or administrator with knowledge of their academic experience. A personal interview is required which involves the student, a parent and an FCHS administrator. A non-refundable application fee of $75 must accompany the application. Please contact the office if you have any questions or to begin the application process.
Our students enjoy the benefits of committed Christian teachers working in small classroom settings averaging less than 20 students per teacher. This atmosphere allows the fullness of a Biblically-integrated curriculum and the development of crucial critical thinking skills. As a school of about 250 students, we provide a wealth of academic opportunities including honors English, Math, Science, History, and some AP courses. There are also a variety of electives available. We offer a diverse athletic program with 12 varsity sports and participation in the Southern Conference of the CIF.
We hope you can join us!
