Why Choose SFCS?

  1. Heritage of Faithfulness
    SFCS was established in 1976 by First Baptist Church with the desire to create an educational option that teaches all academic subjects from a Biblical perspective. 
  2. Biblical World View
    All subjects are taught from a Biblical world view. Our goal is to equip students to live a God-honoring life. 
  3. Teachers
    SFCS teachers are called to the ministry of cultivating Godly character in the lives of their students. SFCS teachers have a broad range of teaching experience including international, public and home school. Our excellent student-teacher ratios allow for the development of each student’s unique abilities and talents. 
  4. Academics
    SFCS systematically reviews state and national education standards to ensure the education we provide is superior to the education offered by public institutions.  Secular standards are the minimum academic qualifications from which we build a comprehensive, rigorous, Christ-centered education.  SFCS developed a Curriculum Guide to ensure that academic standards are evaluated and chosen in accordance with our stated philosophy, that the Curriculum Map has practical value in helping teachers achieve an appropriate scope and sequence, and that SFCS is using the best curriculum resources at our disposal to impart spiritual, social, and academic learning to our students.
  5. Student Leadership
    Students have many opportunities to develop as leaders through involvement in athletics, fine arts and mentorship of younger students. Student development also takes the form of servant leadership through ministry opportunities in the community. 
  6. Fine Arts
    All students participate in music, choir and art. Students in grades 5 –12 compete in speech, music and art festivals organized by the Minnesota Association of Christian Schools. Additionally, students participate in an exceptional dramatic theatre performance each spring. 
  7. Electives
    SFCS offers a variety of electives coupled with quality teachers and current technology. SFCS allows and encourages students to take advantage of Minnesota’s PSEO college class programming through on-line classes. 
  8. Athletics
