HISTORY

Fresno Christian Schools has been a valuable part of the Christian community for over 30 years. The dream for a quality Christian school for Fresno began in 1970 when pastors and educational leaders met with a common vision to consider the possibility of establishing a Christian school. Seven churches in the Fresno area agreed to set aside denominational differences to support the vision for a school that would not compromise God’s word or settle for anything less than the pursuit of excellence in the classroom. Classes began in 1977 with 135 students in grades K-6.

 

In a typical year, the student body represents over 100 churches. Students attend from the greater Fresno area and other communities such as Kerman, Kingsburg, Sanger, Selma and Madera. The largest percentage of our student body attend one of the partnering churches:

  • Bethany Mennonite Brethren Church
  • Clovis Hills Community Church
  • Faith Summit Church
  • First Baptist Church of Clovis
  • Fresno Christian Reformed Church

  • Northwest Church
  • Riverpark Bible
  • The Bridge Evangelical Free Church
