Philosophy

Christian Fellowship School is committed to raising up young people who serve the Lord in both their vocational calling and in the local church. With a challenging college preparatory curriculum, we recommend all students to pursue higher education as a means to best live out their giftings and talents in their daily life. Therefore, with the assistance of faculty and administration, the guidance office strives to prepare students for college and career readiness, from identifying interests and aptitudes to college applications and the financial aid process.

Expectations

Our goal is for students to have a good understanding of how their unique skills and interests are best suited for a vocation and in their Christian life, and to make informed decisions on where to pursue their education after graduation. Therefore we expect students to participate in job shadowing opportunities, complete a minimum of 10 hours of community service, and take the ACT before they graduate. We understand that the transition to college is a process, but we aim to help students graduate prepared and confident in the Lord’s direction for their life.
