Academic Success


Academic Success, our after-school study hall program for middle and high school students, provides a quiet place for students to study with access to teachers and administrators. Faculty are available to answer questions, tutor, help with organizational skills and give the extra support some students need to succeed.

Academic Success meets Monday through Thursday until 4:30 pm.




The Fairfax Christian School develops young leaders. We strive to accomplish this through many different avenues, and student mentoring is a key component in this process with peer-to-peer and teacher/student mentoring. Mentors are carefully matched with students according to their interests, backgrounds, needs, classes and activities.
