In 1978, the parents of the Mission Boulevard Baptist Church became convinced of the need for their children to have a Christian education. Because most families could not afford the rates of most Christian schools, we determined to work together to provide a Christian school for our children.
In the fall of 1978, MBBC began the Mission Boulevard Baptist Church Child Development Ministry for K4 and K5. The following year we added 1st and 2nd grades. All teachers and staff were parents who gave their time to provide an affordable Christian education for their children and others in the community.
In the summer of 1981, the church youth group and their parents requested that we have all twelve grades. Stepping out in faith that the Lord would provide teachers, we announced that we would go through high school. Qualified people volunteered to teach the classes, and we have offered K3 through 12th grades ever since.
Recognizing the need for our 7th through 12th grades to have the benefits of accreditation for transfers, athletics, scholarships, etc., we achieved accreditation through the Arkansas Nonpublic School Accreditation Association (ANSAA) for our secondary in 1994, changing our name to Fayetteville Christian School (FCS). We extended the accreditation with ANSAA to our kindergarten and elementary in 2016.
