    The biblical foundation of this school is second to none and the academics are superb. My child is learning far more than he would have at the public school and being taught in a very structured environment has been a huge positive for his development. However, it's very international, and in the upper school almost entirely, which to me doesn't define "diversity". Once the kids age, the structure is almost too much if you're looking for a well-rounded child. Things like the music program, sports, and clubs could be much better. While the education for now is my top priority, I will not stay here as my son ages.

    It's a wonderful place. Caring teachers, challenging curriculum, excellent facilities. All of our children have attended and gone on the top universities and amazing careers. Thank you!
    I believe the early years in a child’s education are so important in their overall development and decided to move my daughter from the public school to a private school. My daughter started at Fairfax Christian School in the first grade and it was the best decision I ever made. The school offers a diverse and challenging academic program that promotes a positive atmosphere with an emphasis on respect, morals, and integrity. My daughter is now entering the 6th grade and I am planning for her to continue all the way through high school. The teachers are excellent, caring, and approachable. I love the smaller classes and the individual attention she receives. The school provides a safe and welcoming environment. Overall, Fairfax Christian School is an outstanding school that develops well rounded kids who go on to be successful citizens. I would recommend this school to anyone without hesitation.
