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.
“Beware of sitting back and saying, it can’t be done. You will know it can be done if you look to Jesus.
The well of your incompleteness runs deep, but make the effort to look away from yourself and to look towards Him.”
As we move into the fourth quarter and the end of this school year, it is easy to say, “It can’t be done.” There are many rewarding activities swirling around today — sporting events, Boys State interviews, college acceptance letters landing in mailboxes and yes, tests, quizzes, projects, and more academic challenges. It is our nature to say it cannot be accomplished, but as we turn in prayer to Jesus, He will give us the direction, strength, and guidance we need. He will direct our steps and push us toward those areas which are His will for our lives. “Trust in the Lord with all you heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your path straight.
