We are dedicated to partnering with parents in the pursuit of academic excellence, artistic expression, athletic distinction, and personal maturity of each student while growing in knowledge and wisdom through God’s truth and abundant grace.
Truth - Truth is absolute. Truth is given by God through His written Word. The Bible’s authority and sufficiency regulates the purpose, content, and conduct of SFCS. II Timothy 3:15-17
Growth - Growth must be cultivated. SFCS cultivates the maturity of the entire student equipping them for maximum effectiveness in living out the great commission. II Peter 1:5-8
Partnership - Partnership is foundational and profitable. The church’s mission is designed to operate in the context of community. SFCS functions to aid the church, parents, and students in fulfilling their unique call from God. Philippian 1:27
SFCS was founded in 1976 as the result of a need identified by First Baptist Church to provide an education option that teaches all academic subjects from a biblical perspective.
SFCS is a member of the Minnesota Association of Christian Schools as well as the nationally recognized American Association of Christian Schools. Students enrolled in SFCS are educated in the fundamentals of reading, math, English, history, science and Bible. Because of our unique size, SFCS is able to offer a wide variety of high quality electives that are intentionally designed to develop holistic students. Elementary students participate in activities such as art, music, choir, physical education and dramatic productions. High school students participate in activities such as music, art, choir, physical education, ACT prep courses, journalism, yearbook, CPR training and numerous other electives available through Ignitia online courses. Student development also occurs through mentorship of younger students and servant leadership ministry opportunities in the community.
