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.
“The proof that our relationship is right with God is that we do our best
whether we feel inspired or not.”
Last week at chapel, we studied 1 Peter 5:1-11. This passage of scripture describes how God calls us to be humble toward one another; to clothe ourselves in humility. We were reminded through the teaching by Pastor Jeff Alaways of Simple Truth Church, that the Lord is against the proud, but will lavish His favor on those who are humble. And as we trust God in our day to day life, we will grow in humility, and we will be inspired to serve Him and live for Him.
I see examples of humility each and every day at Forest Lake Christian School – in the hallways, classrooms, and throughout our sports programs. I see right relationships with God through acts of servant hood, kind words, and persevering through difficult times. The study of 1 Peter this year has been rich and has challenged all of us to live out our faith and to be full of hope.

The Forest Lake Family has shared an incredibly difficult couple of weeks. Through it all, our gracious God has been so evident around campus and in the lives of our staff, students, and families. Thank you for sharing the love of God with the O’Neill and Masalov families as they walk through their sorrows. Continue to pray for the peace and comfort only Jesus can bring to these families and all who are grieving. FLCS is a very special place, filled with amazing people (like you) and a totally awesome God who holds us in the palm of His hand.
Our final School Wide BBQ is this Friday, May 29, offering a hamburger lunch for $5. Shaved Ice ($2) and Cotton Candy ($1) will also be available. Students will have time to sign yearbooks during the powder puff games. Junior High yearbooks will be distributed this Thursday afternoon.
