In 1978, the parents of the Mission Boulevard Baptist Church became convinced of the need for their children to have a Christian education. Because families could not afford the rates of most Christian schools, we determined to work together to provide a Christian school for our children. All teachers and staff were parents giving their time to make an affordable Christian education for their children and others in the community.
In the fall of 1978, MBBC began the Mission Boulevard Baptist Church Child Development Ministry for K4 and K5. The following year we added 1st and 2nd grades. In the summer of 1981, the church youth group and their parents requested that we have all twelve grades. Stepping out in faith that the Lord would provide teachers, we announced that we would go through high school. Qualified people volunteered to teach the classes, and we have offered K3 through 12th grade ever since.
Recognizing the need for our students to have the benefits of accreditation for transfers, scholarships, etc., we achieved accreditation through the Arkansas Nonpublic School Accreditation Association (ANSAA) in 1994.
Because God continues to call people to give their time and lives as an offering to Himself, FCS continues to provide affordable, Christian education in Northwest Arkansas.
