  • The staff of Freedom Christian School have varied backgrounds and church experiences. However, the two common denominators for all staff members are their passionate devotion to Jesus Christ and their determination to enable all of their students to reach their God-given potential. This strength of purpose and vision create an atmosphere of unity and love for the FCS community.
