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.

(Excerpt from “Just a Minute” by former Compassion International CEO, Wess Stafford)
Elementary Principal Brian Tebbs
In the book of 1 Kings, there was a great showdown amongst the righteous man Elijah and the prophets of Baal. This encounter was intense to say the least; Elijah demonstrated his trust in the Almighty and defeated over 450 wicked prophets. He then ran over 15-20 miles from Mt. Carmel to Jezreel out running Ahab’s chariots. At his return he was threatened by the wicked Queen Jezebel, fled into the wilderness and fell into exhaustion.
“ Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good.  Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor.  Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord.  Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.  Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to […]
