Academic Excellence

The Fairfax Christian School creates scholars with a passion for learning. Our talented teachers follow a time–tested curriculum which brings excitement to learning and promotes critical thinking and creativity while focusing on the success and talent of each student. 

Our lower school begins with our phonics–based reading and advanced mathematics programs. Our history, science, art, music, foreign languages and Bible classes allow young students to grow and flourish. In third grade, students begin Latin and in fourth grade students are introduced to economics.

Middle school students continue with our core curriculum. They have opportunities to develop an aptitude for analytical and innovative thinking. Technology is used daily and incorporated into every subject. Students develop an inner strength and self discipline which grounds them for future success.

By high school, our students are prepared for university level course work including over twenty Advanced Placement classes.  SAT preparation is integrated into the curriculum. A variety of challenging electives allow students to establish expertise in writing, computer science, economics, business, lab sciences, art and music. Students are encouraged to develop their unique abilities. Our comprehensive program gives students an extraordinary foundation which will benefit them their entire lifetime.

Our Motto

“Wisdom begins with respect for the Lord.” —  Proverbs 9:10


Fairfax Christian School has been a spectacular learning environment for my daughter. Small class sizes, individual attention from the teachers and a focus on fundamentals has instilled in her a real passion for learning. Equally importantly, the strong moral atmosphere of the school has reinforced her sense of right and wrong/good versus evil, something that will serve her long after her school days are over.

The Fairfax Christian School is amazing. The administration and teachers care about our children. They teach more than just what’s in the textbook. They inspire students. Our children have learned self–discipline, responsibility and kindness. The maturity of the Fairfax Christian School students far exceeds their peers at other schools. Fairfax Christian School gives students a love for learning, a desire to serve others and the leadership skills to success.
