Admissions Standards

Our admissions standards reflect our commitment to serve as a partner with the family in Connecting Faith and Learning. Florence Christian School does not require prospective students to take an entrance exam. However, each family must go through the admissions process which includes an interview with our admissions team to discuss the academic and discipline standards that are required by FCS.

Shared Goals

FCS is most effective when working with families who share spiritual and academic goals that reflect the mission of the school . Parents are to agree to cooperate and support the ideals and statement of faith of Florence Christian School as outlined in the FCS Parent Handbook and Florence Baptist Temple Statement of Faith.
