Early Childhood Education

Our Nursery, Pre-K, and Kindergarten programs use guided play to create a stimulating and nurturing environment where young children can grow—academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. We challenge children to expand their knowledge and imagination, hone their relationship skills, develop problem-solving abilities, and acquire independence and self-confidence.

Lower School

Our Lower School is a place where joy-filled learning is embedded in play, exploration, and discovery. Whether at a desk, in the garden, art studio, or the playground, learning is engaging and takes place alongside critical questioning—why?, how?, what if?,—teamwork, and collaboration.

Middle School

Our Middle School transforms eager, enthusiastic, and motivated elementary school students into self-aware, analytical, and empathetic eighth graders who will become courageous leaders and independent thinkers.

Upper School

Our Upper School's challenging and innovative program includes lively and rigorous classes, athletic, artistic, and performance opportunities that emphasize advanced critical thinking and independent projects requiring student research. Additionally, leadership skills, global awareness, and self-discipline are developed throughout the curriculum and in extracurricular activities.

WHAT FCS PARENTS ARE SAYING

"I love the balance teachers in all divisions hold between being nurturing and doing real academic preparation. FCS is an intellectual and loving community."

"It is the rule rather than the exception that the adults at FCS go the extra mile for students."

"The teachers are the most incredible educators. I have children in other schools, and there is just no comparison!"
