(Acquiring Character Through Service) Service Projects each month of the school year.  A student from each class is nominated for exhibiting the character trait of the month, they are recognized in Chapel and then all of them come together for the service project during the school day.

missions iconMany things come to mind when hearing the term "worldview."  At Faith Christian High School students have many opportunities to expand their worldview and to develop a Christian worldview.  Whether it be through Bible classes, such as Worldview and World Religions; befriending an international student; service projects; mission trips; athletics; or theater - our students are constantly challenged to view the world as greater than their immediate local.
