    Elementary School 

    In our elementary school, we are all working toward facilitating the work of the Holy Spirit in the hearts of our students. Our desire is to see each child give his/her heart to Jesus at an early age. Therefore, we aspire to model godly character for students in our daily lives.

    At Faith Christian, we focus on keeping Jesus at the center, glorifying God, and serving other through the power of the Holy Spirit! We strive to love our neighbours as ourselves. In order to acquire an excellent education and passionately represent Christ at FCES, our teachers must be able to teach and all students must be able to learn.
