I have worked with several schools in this district and am very impressed with Freedom's attention to academic standards and student success. With an engaging teaching staff and administration, this school provides one of the best learning environments for your students!

I have been at Freedom for over ten years. This School has helped me grow closer to the Lord and has given me many opportunities to grow and use the gifts that God has given me. I love this school. Thanks so Freedom for all that you have poured into my life.

Can't say enough positive things about this school!!! Low student to teacher ratios give my children the personal attention they deserve. A great emphasis on moral and biblical values has strengthened our work as parents; my children are held to high standards even on the playground as they play games with other children. Teaching to all levels of ability enables every student to soar academically. The leadership and public speaking courses have created very strong leadership attributes and confidence in my children. Wouldn't have my kids at any other school!!!

I am an FCS parent and I was so surprised to see the post about the financial policies. I have never experienced anything like this. In fact, when our family had some financial hardship the school administration was extremely gracious and willing to work with us.

I am an Alumni of Freedom and am blown away that anyone would be unsatisfied with the quality of education that Freedom provides. I came into the school as a Junior and was behind because of my academic background. Not only did I feel like the classrooms had a great student/teacher ration, but a couple of teachers volunteered multiple hours of tutoring time for me, so that I would catch up. This was time away from their families and personal lives. I was amazed at the level of dedication and commitment the staff had to each of the students. I graduated feeling more than prepared for college. I look back at my experience at Freedom and thank God, simply because Freedom prepared me to work full time and go to college at the same time. I don't think I would have been able to juggle both of these responsibilities if it weren't for the training and tools I received at Freedom. Thanks Freedom for preparing me spiritually, academically, and emotionally for my future!

Freedom is a school that my husband and I can be confident in. We know our children are with a caring, loving staff that go the extra mile to see that they understand what they are learning and at the same time will be challenged to grow. The high moral standards of the staff and administration assure me that my children are physically safe, emotionally nurtured, spiritually inspired and academically challenged. We are grateful for FCS and would not have our children at any other school.

Absolutely horrible! This school is run without ANY morals at all. They called to say they had changed policy on us last minute in August. We had to pay tuition through November with only days notice! Said they would drop us if we didn't pay the full amount by August 15th. THEN told us afterwards that our fees plus multiple pre-payment of tuition were completely non-refundable. We were completely blackmailed with our child's education. We didn't even have time to look for another school, we had to pay. Suffice it to say our child WILL NOT be back next year.

My daughter attended Freedom for years. When she finally transfered out, to attend another high school, she was multiple grades behind the other students! This was after she earned straight As and Bs at Freedom. I expected those As and Bs to mean something. I was shocked to learn that she could have been getting a better education at our local public school- and that says a lot! So much time, money and investment spent trying to ensure her a good education and it all went down the drain. We just have to pray that she can get caught up in time to be competitive for college.

As a parent and this is being our 10th year at the school, I cannot say anything but great things about the teachers and staff and the a mazing impact that they've made in my kids lives! My daughter graduated after attending for 8 years and my son is starting 10th grade. Being a single parent, the school has helped me to raise my kids God's way and helped them learn skills for their furture.

Both my children graduated from Freedom several years ago, and we couldn't be happier with the foundation that was established in them both spiritually and academically. Today they are both happily married and raising children, are living for the Lord and serving in their churches, and even in this tough economic climate they both have skills and work ethic that has enabled them to thrive and even be entrepreneurial. Their years at Freedom were a great experience for them, and we continue to be involved and supportive of Freedom as a family.

I have a high school student at Freedom Christian School and we love this school. My child is being well prepared to enter the college of choice. The AP course work allows students to receive both college credit and high school credit. The dedication of the highly qualified staff is amazing! They truly care about whether their students have gained understanding of the subject being taught. If you are serious about your child's spiritual well being and their academics, this is the school for you!

Also, they have a policy that is absurd for a so-called college-preparatory high school: a student who does not turn in an assignment on its due date, gets several chances to turn in said assignment. If he turns it in the next class day, the grade is reduced 10%. If he fails to do so again, it falls another 10%. When I was attending the school, one could be three class days late, receiving a 30% reduction. Any later, the grade became a zero. And yet another not so college-preparatory policy was that of make-up days. One day after every semester, each student gets a chance to retake tests and/or homework assignments. FCS is a great elementary private Christian school, but it's not at all a good high school. A high school student needs to be challenged, not babied. Life doesn't give as many "second chances." I have said all that I have to say, now pray as you decide whether or not to send your innocent child into this environment. Whatever decision you make, may God bless it. (Part 3)

I've had three kids in this school for two years and they are thriving, both academically and spiritually. Before we found FCS I thought you had to compromise one or the other. There is such a spirit of excellence from the teachers and staff, definitely no compromise here! My kids cannot wait to go to school each day. Check out a school program to really get a sense of what FCS is about.

I am a grandmother to 3 grandsons who attend Freedom Christian School. I have been fortunate enough to attend the amazing school programs, the special Grandparents Day, and see them interact with their teachers and fellow students when I occasionally pick them up. I am mother to 7 children some of whom attended private schools. I sincerely wish I had known about Freedom. There is a strong sense of purpose, love, and community when you walk on this campus. I can sense it! More importantly, I can see it! The teachers know and love all their students. They express, in a tangible way, the love of God while not just teaching academics (which includes French, Spanish, and Sign Language beginning in Kindergarten), but they also are imparting to the students in their care, an understanding of honor and respect - which is hard to find in many schools today. There is also a joy in this school! I know it is the joy of the Lord and it is not just talked about, it is lived. I highly recommend this school. Walk the campus, come to a program and you will absolutely know that this is a good place for a child to be!

I am a teacher at Freedom Christian School and I am so grateful to be working here! I love coming to work everyday to help our students seek God and strive for excellence. This school is unlike any other; we value character as well as the student's education. As a teacher, I partner with the student and their parents to ensure their future success in college and in life.

We've been at the school for 10 years now and I can still say, "This is a great school!" The staff at the school connect with each student and provide a quality education. I wouldn't have my kids anywhere else! I would give them 10 stars, if possible!

Freedom Christian School is a college prep school for K-12th grade. I have been a part of the staff team for 12 years now and have been astounded at how the staff work together to help every child succeed. I have seen many alumni come back to their teachers, thanking them for their college prep work. The elementary classes as well are very dynamic and have several extra classes such as Spanish, French, Sign Language, and Music. I recommend this school to anyone who wants their child to go to school in a family oriented environment.

Freedom Christian School is a great K12 Christian School. My elementary aged kids attend there. They learn art, French, Spanish, Sign Language, and computers in addition to the core subjects. They have weekly Bible memory verses which keep me in the Bible with them. Also, they played on the basketball team and the soccer team. In the high school level, the school offers soccer, basketball, volleyball, and golf. I'm really looking forward to my kids playing golf! They'll also have the opportunity to take Advanced Placement classes in high school.

We are new to Freedom Christian School this 2010/11 school year and couldn't be happier. The teachers and administrators are the best anywhere! My son is in the 5th grade and was nervous about starting a new school, but from day one he has felt like FCS has always been his school. The teachers as well as the other students have really made him feel, not only welcome, but a member of the school family.

Freedom Christian School is an outstanding school. The administration and faculty really care about all of their students and their families. The school has very high academic standards. They really prepare their students for college. For a small school they a very technically advanced. My children really enjoy coming to school each day. We are extremely happy that we found Freedom Christian School!!

My son started kindergarten here last year and will be going on to first grade. He loves going to school here and looks forward to it. My younger son will be entering the pre-kindergarten program this year. I like the idea of putting him in here instead of preschool so he can get ahead start for next year when he is in kindergarten. The school also has a great buddy program where my son had an older buddy in a higher grade (5th or 6th) and it is a mentor type relationship. They will have lunch together from time to time and get gifts for one another at holidays and that type of thing. I think it is a unique school in the Sacramento area because it has a family type feel but the academic standards are really high. It has to be the best school in Sacramento!

We have 3 kiddos attending Freedom Christian School (FCS) for the past 3 years & couldn't imagine a better educational setting. The administrators & teachers are fantastic!! Walking into any classroom, you can sense the love & enthusiasm these teachers have for each of their students. We believe that our 3 kiddos are receiving more than an average education. FCS has been providing a well-rounded education (Biblical principles taught & applied, traditional academics to AP classes to chapel), in a safe social setting. FCS is doing a great job in preparing its students for future success in life, both academically & spiritually. It is well-worth the drive for our family!!

Our family has been part of Freedom Christian School for many years and we have all grown tremendously from the experience. I know the kids are getting a solid education that is preparing them for their future. The staff and administration all invest heavily in the kids academic progress and personal development. What's more, we have been challenged spiritually as individuals and as a family because of the accountable relationships we have developed with solid Christians there. We are grateful for what Freedom has done in our lives!

I have three kids in this school, the eldest has attended for 8 years. I'm just amazed at the quality and the consistency of love, care, and teaching ! My younger kids receive the same care, and individual attention that makes me very happy to have them at Freedom ! I'm very excited about the upcoming gymnasium and the upcoming school year. I checked the cost of surrounding schools as I heard that FCS was one of the cheapest, and I was amazed to find that with all that is done with high quality here, they are on the low end of the surrounding private schools cost. I'm sure that all of my kids will graduate from Freedom Christian !

Hello! I am a Freedom Christian School graduate and am so excited that I have the opportunity to let others know what an amazing school Freedom is and the impact this school has had on my life. As parents decide whether or not Freedom is the school for their children, my prayer is that they see the dedication and heart that Freedom's staff have for the students. I started attending my junior year and from the moment I stepped on the campus my life began to change. Freedom is a school that not only sees the importance of academics but truly desires all around wholeness for each student. Thank you Freedom for loving me and preparing me for life! ~Elizabeth Feldhaus~

Wow! My girls have been attending the high school this year 9 and 10 grade. We love the caring administration, teachers and staff. The quality of the education is spectacular and the grace is there when needed! The leadership of the school is superior and the team/staff are willing to work with your kids to help them succeed. The Christmas program was spectacular (not a dry eye in the house) and really showed the spirit of the school - Jesus is truly the reason for the season and the reason for the mission of this fabulous school. Balanced academics, sports (go girls Basketball!), clean, safe activities and wonderful caring learning environment. Highly recommended - some spend the day with the kids and you will see!

I love this school. In my opinion, there are none better. My son has been attending there for almost 4 years now, and I have had wonderful experiences with both the teachers and administration. It is a smaller school - K-12. All the teachers know all the kids names and personalities as well. They are loving, kind and supportive. At times when we have run into problems with our son, we have completely felt as if we were working on the same team. They are committed to seeing my son, and all the children, grow and mature in deep and serious ways. I recommend this school to anyone who desires an education for their kids that submits to true Christian values, is high in academic standards, small enough to not be overlooked, and loving enough to pour the attention into my kid, that I would.

High quality programs and curriculum. Very high standards on moral and ethical values. Good sports program. You should see their sign language program. Parents are involved as well in helping curb the education of children. Very highly recommended!
