"The basic premise of Fort Lauderdale Christian School is that the ultimate responsibility of a child's education lies with the parent. In our complex society, God has provided FLCS to assist parents in fulfilling their God-given mandate to teach their children in the fear and nurture of the Lord. It is proper that children in the most formative period of their lives should be educated through objectives formulated by a God-centered philosophy, educational objectives which include not only the cognitive and psycho-motive domains, but also the affective domains, realizing it is impossible to instill values apart from Christ.
The task of education is clearly given in Scripture to the parents, not the State, Institution or Church.
\"And these words which I am commanding you today shall be on your heart; and you shall teach them diligently to your sons and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way and when you lie down and when you rise up.\" Deuteronomy 6:6-7
\"...bring (up your children) in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.\" Ephesians 6:6b
FLCS seeks the cooperation and support of home and church in order that the child see a well-rounded, yet unified picture of God and His world.
The community to which FLCS is directed is composed of evangelical Christians and their children. FLCS seeks a student population where at least one of the parents is a professing, dedicated believer who is a member of a local Bible-believing church. FLCS does not provide Christian nurture in place of the home, but supplements the Godly instruction of the parents and the church.
FLCS provides a program of instruction for the parents so that they will become acquainted with the philosophy and goals of the school. We always welcome your questions and comments.
The School Board and Administration provide the necessary facilities, staff, equipment and materials to carry out the education of your children. These provisions are made so that children of Christian parents may be fully equipped to meet the demands of the Christian life in our complex, pluralistic society.
Christian education consists of viewing the natural revelation of God and all of life through the perspective of His special revelation. No area of living and thinking should be divorced from God and Christ for your child.
Man has been given the cultural mandate to subdue and have dominion over the world, and therefore, FLCS seeks to build in your child a Christian world and life view. We guide youth in discovering a Christian perspective on all areas of life and prepare them to live in the real world.
Therefore, it is the task of each teacher at FLCS to analyze and interpret his/her subject area through God's revelation, the Bible.
FLCS seeks to expose the students to the teachings and mind of the world in order to understand and cope with a society that is usually hostile to the things of Christ, and to be better quipped to witness to it.
\"We are destroying speculations and every lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ...\" I Corinthians 10:5
FLCS seeks to develop the whole person for service in God's Kingdom. Your child will be led to develop a life of discipleship, making full use of the abilities God has given him. FLCS recognizes the uniqueness of each student as one created in God's image with varying gifts and talents, yet each one having a particular place and calling in God's Kingdom with specific talents to offer the whole.
It is the purpose of FLCS to educate children for lives of obedience to their calling in this world as image-bearers of God. This calling is to know God's Word and His creation, to consecrate their whole life to God, to love their fellow man, and to be good stewards in their cultural task.
