This is a wonderful school that has a lot of great kids and teachers who care. Please be prepared for a heavy work load in the HS though. They are a tough school, and many, many kids struggle to keep C's and D's.

I could not imagine going to a high school other than Faith. The teachers are incredible and you are able to have a close relationship with them, while also getting a great education. The athletics are also amazing. The main focus is giving all the glory to God, and we have had many successful seasons in many different sports.

I didn't realize it while I was attending, but this school was probably the best years of my life. High School was a blast, and I did not even realize it until college. Students and teachers have a great relationship with each other, and in most cases, the students feel comfortable with their teachers, unlike many schools where students and teachers don't have a personal relationship and talking with them can make one nervous and feel awkward. I could not have asked for a better high school experience.

Faith Christian is everything a Christian parent could want in a school. Every time I attend an event I am amazed at the quality of the children. I have had two children graduate who made quality life- long friendships, were prepared to be leaders, and are succeeding in the most important things of life.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
