Forest Lake Christian School
Choosing the right school has become one of life’s most strategic decisions, because that institution can shape the values, philosophy and direction of a young person. It demands a quality choice. Education is not value neutral. Every institution will work to shape the worldview of an impressionable child. School is where we learn to think. School is where we learn to work with and relate to others and ultimately it helps determine what our impact will be upon this world. If that whole process includes God’s own viewpoint, then we provide our children with a truth laden education which they are able to apply to every aspect of life.
The mission of Forest Lake Christian School is to provide an education based upon the truth of God’s word so that students are able to discern right thinking and action from a Biblical world view and are thereby empowered for a life of enduring commitment to Christ, moral integrity, and intellectual growth. A team of dedicated and professionally trained teachers provide daily instrution from God’s word and provide a model of Christian excellence in and out of the classroom. We trust that this site will help you determine that Forest Lake Christian School offers the best perspective on the issues of moraliy, ethics and education.
Forest Lake Christian School was founded in 1966 as an independent, evangelical Christian day school. We are a charter member of ACSI and welcome students of any race, color, gender, and national or ethnic origin.
Forest Lake Christian School is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), a member of the the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and is the longest running Christian school in the Northern California area.
I want to share a touching story — Last week, I was over at the Elementary campus getting ready for the Veteran’s Day Chapel. We had the pleasure of working with amazing individuals – Pastor Jeff Alaways of Simple Truth Church, Cadet Alexander and the Detachment 088 Honor Guard from Sacramento State University, and a local Boy Scout Troop #708 from Auburn. My contact for the Boy Scouts was our very own Jack McKim who is in 8th grade at Forest Lake Christian.
I thank you, dear parents, for allowing us to share with you in the educating of your children. At our recent teacher convention I was challenged again and again with the message of the Power of Relationships. God created us all as relational beings and when we are in healthy Christ-centered relationships with each other we are most effective.
