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.

Dear Forest Lake ChristianHigh School Families,
On Friday, we ended our Spiritual Emphasis Week with Pastor Phil Sparling of Auburn Grace Church sharing about being thankful. He focused on Psalm 100 and how it is necessary to outwardly express our thankfulness to the Lord and to each other. We took this opportunity to write brief notes of gratitude to God for what He has done in our lives, as well as words of thanks to the teachers of our school. The three days of chapel were challenging to all of us with messages about surrendering our lives to Christ, the meaning of worship and opportunities within our own community to serve others.

There is a great need for discernment in this day and age. Driving to work today my daughter said “look at all the birds in the bushes.” There are always birds in the bushes but what caught her eye was the amount of activity among the birds. This lead to a great conversation about how the birds know when a storm is coming and how they are all abuzz preparing for the weather. The birds did not watch the news the night before, they have not read the Farmers Almanac, but they know what is coming often before we do.
