Welcome to Flagstaff Christian School

Where students learn in a Christ-centered and nurturing atmosphere.

We want to welcome you as you explore Flagstaff Christian School for Kindergarten through 10th grade. We are located in the heart of Coconino County in the beautiful Flagstaff mountains.

It is the mission of FCS to work together with the family to provide a Christ-centered and rigorous education that is built on the foundation of a biblical worldview.  It is our deepest desire to see every student come to know Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and to discover His unique plan for their lives.

We wish you well in the application process and would like to invite you to take a gander and see what life is like for students.

Our Philosophy

Where students learn in a Christ-centered and nurturing atmosphere.

At FCS, we believe that every student is a child of God and that each one possesses unique gifts and abilities given to them by their Creator.  It is our most earnest desire to see every student come to know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior and to discover what their God-given purpose is in this life. From that foundation, the goal for each FCS student is that they excel in intellectual preparedness, Christian discipleship, servant leadership and cultural influence.

All classes and curriculum are taught from a Biblical worldview. We are intentional and creative in helping God’s Word to be planted in their hearts, assisting them in making it applicable their everyday lives.

We believe that the family unit is the biggest key to a student’s success. Our school exists, therefore, to partner with and serve the parents in that education without replacing the family’s role.

FCS will work together with families, the Christian church and the community to provide students with a compass for life through a challenging Christ-centered education and a solid Biblical foundation.

Our Teachers

Mrs. Raynsford has over 25 years of teaching experience in the private school sector. She is passionate about teaching students and makes the material come alive in the classroom. Mrs. Raynsford recently has moved to the role of Administrator and we are thankful for her wonderful leadership! She loves our students and provides them with a safe, Christ-centered, highly academic, and fun learning environment. Mrs. Raynsford is at FCS because, “Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life. There can be no division between that being the core of my being and what I pour into the lives I am entrusted with day after day and year after year. FCS gives me the priviledge to partner with what are students’ parents are instilling as truth and what our Creator has laid as the foundation for this world.”

Mrs. Manci joined FCS in 2003 and has been instrumental in shaping the lives of our youngest students. Mrs. Manci loves to teach because she loves that children are so real, honest and see things simply. She loves being at a Christian school where she can teach them about Jesus in everyday situations. She has a bachelor’s from NAU in early education with a minor in psychology and is on the Coconino County Search and Rescue Team.
