History

Cross in DoorwayIn the Beginning…

In the 1970’s a group of pastors, elders, deacons, and concerned church members decided to provide a quality, Christian education to their members and the surrounding neighborhoods. Today, Forcey Christian School is a multi-accredited school with a diverse student population of more than 500 students in PK3 through 8th grade.

1977

Forcey Christian School opened its doors to a class of 8 kindergartners.

Each year until 1982

Forcey added a new grade to its rolls every year until students in kindergarten through fifth grade filled its hallways.

1995

Parents had expressed a desire to continue with FCS through 8th grade and so the school opened its middle school to provide a Christian educational experience through formative adolescent years.
