Welcome International Students

Founded in 1961, The Fairfax Christian School hosts the Washington, D.C., area’s premier international student program for lower, middle and high school students. A short drive from downtown Washington, D.C., the Fairfax Christian School is located on an enchanting wooded campus and a nearby annex in the heart of America’s wealthiest jurisdiction, Fairfax County.

Fairfax Christian School’s international students receive a foundation that makes them well prepared to enter and compete in America’s top universities.

Our unique English as a Second Language (ESL) program uses a university–prep curriculum. Students receive an intensive, comprehensive curriculum that ensures students read, write and speak at a university level. Students take TOEFL–prep classes and our 23 Advanced Placement (AP) classes for university credit.


"The 'E' Awards Committee was very impressed with The Fairfax Christian School’s dedication to providing quality education to students from around the world.  The school’s adaptation of its curriculum to accommodate non-English speakers was also particularly notable."  — US Secretary of Commerce, Penny Pritzker
