FRCS High School
The FRCS high school experience is one in which students and teachers interact and pursue knowledge in a close-knit learning community. Lifelong relationships are formed as students study and have fun together. The students are highly involved, participating in many academic, athletic, and social activities, which help to create well-rounded, vibrant young people.
FRCS students reap the spiritual and emotional benefits of community service, while blessing others. Forty hours of student-selected service are required prior to graduation. Activities may include class ministry projects, food and clothing drives, mission trips, and projects sponsored by the National Honor Society and Student Council.
Summer Reading Program
Over the summer, all students are required to read one assigned book and at least one book of their choice from the high school reading list. This is done to promote knowledge of literature, improve vocabulary, and increase students’ language arts skills.
High school meets for its own chapel service every week. Praise and worship is led by high school students participating in the Worship Band performance class. Speakers include students, teachers, parents, and pastors. Once a month, a student is chosen from each class to receive a character award. A mid-year Spiritual Emphasis week with activities and services every day helps students re-focus their commitment to God. Chapel is an important part of encountering God at FRCS.
Achievement Hour is a flexible period of time for students to do homework, get tutoring from other teachers, make up tests, or go to enrichment sessions or organization meetings. Students who have low grades in a class on a progress report or report card will be sent to check in with that teacher each week until their grades rise.
In 2003, the school purchased a powerful on-line communication tool known as Edline whereby parents and students can access a wealth of school-related information such as newsletters, calendar events and class assignments. Edline also includes private grade reports, attendance information, and account statements, which are only available to the individual parent. Student-led conferences and progress reports also keep parents informed of their students’ academic progress.
Senior Year is exciting and busy! Senior project, the Understanding the Times Bible curriculum, and college applications make it academically challenging. Co-curricular activities such as senior debut, senior trip, Junior-Senior banquet, Baccalaureate and Commencement provide opportunities to create meaningful memories.
