FAIR OAKS, CA (MPG) - Freedom Christian School (FCS) at 7736 Sunset Avenue in Fair Oaks has been a quality school for students from many different evangelical churches in the Sacramento area since 1982.

FCS has offered a family-oriented, biblically based, technologically advanced, K-8th grade academic experience for families who value what matters most.

Having resumed in-person instruction from TK (transitional Kindergarten) through grade six, FCS is actively looking to increase TK enrollment through this calendar year and looking for students to enroll in its seventh and eighth grade programs which will resume in the future, said Mrs. Laura Koehn, FCS school principal.

“We’re excited to be back, and we’re in an enrollment rebuilding phase,” Koehn said.

“We’re especially looking for families with young four-year-olds who would like to enroll in our pre-K program,” she said. “Many families held back enrolling their children in TK due to the pandemic, and coming into the classroom, and need academic support in building basic skills.”

Interested parents should call or email her for enrollment information and special pricing for multiple students, she said.

Daily TK activities begin with extended care at 7 am with dismissal at 3:10 pm. Extended day care is also available. Fun daily activities include hands-on math, creative writing, language and phonics with learning centers, science, social studies and journaling activities mixed in. Extra classes in computers, music, sign language, Spanish, art and physical education are also offered.

“We’re committed to providing a biblically based, academically excellent education in a nurturing, family environment where its students can effectively accomplish the purpose for which they were created and impact the world for Christ,” she said.

At FCS, all students learn the skills necessary for academic success, but also how to use critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity to accomplish their goals now and in the future.

Teachers nurture the young digital generation by engaging in students by traditional study methods of book, pen and paper and with contemporary Chrome lap books, incorporating an increased amount of project-based learning in the classroom.

“We believe that education is the process of developing a person spiritually, intellectually, socially and physically through understanding and applying truth,” Koehn said.

Students engage in activities such as chapels, outreach projects, small group Bible study and prayer which allow students to experience a real, dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ.

“We’re excited to see our students learn and grow spiritually as they advance to the next academic grade.”

Staff members are dedicated professionals credentialed by the Association of Christian Schools, who encourage all students to pursue high academic standards as well as personal spiritual growth goals in an environment of respect and support. As a TK-8th grade school, FCS offers core course offerings and electives to meet the needs of all students.

“When they graduate, we’ve done our best to equip our students to live a productive, godly life and train them to pursue truth and its varied applications as they fulfill their purpose in a global society,” Koehn said.
