Learning doesn't stop in the classroom. The Fairfax Christian School has many after school activities in the arts, music, sports, clubs and more. Students are encouraged to participate in extra curricular activities which interest them.
Across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., Northern Virginia is the wealthiest region in the United States. The Fairfax Christian School is a ten minute drive from Washington–Dulles International Airport. International students live with our American families with access to top amenities including swimming pools, tennis courts, golf courses, shopping, restaurants, museums, sporting events, theaters, parks and historic landmarks.
Our international students board with homestay families who are carefully selected and matched to each student based on their interest. Usually, two students are placed with each family. Many families also have their own children in the Fairfax Christian School. There is a strong network of support, so students won't feel alone.
On weekends, students stay with their host families. They can get together with friends or explore the Washington, D.C., area. There is always something fun to do in Washington!
