FCS, an independent, coeducational Christian school, founded in 1975, seeks to “provide a quality Christian education that reinforces the Christian training of the home and the church”. Serving the Yuba/Sutter County area with two campuses on the west end of Yuba City, the elementary (K-6) campus is located on the Calvary Christian Center site and the secondary (7-12) campus and main business office is ¼ mile away on 10 acres (6.5 owned by FCS) next to the First United Methodist Church.  

Faith Christian School has a continuing 40 year legacy of equipping children to be grounded in truth and faith, educating students to excel in further education and the workplace, and encouraging generations to have a love for others and lead a lifetime of service.
