Why Cursive Writing
In opposition to the current trends of promoting screen time and keyboard use by students, educators and parents have overlooked the benefits of handwriting in stimulating several areas of the brain, creating deeper memory pathways, lowering emotional tension, increasing fine-motor coordination, producing fluency, establishing multi-processing efficiency, and clarifying personal thought…
Front Royal Christian School works with your learner throughout his or her academic career, seeking opportunities to explore interests and strengths, to identify potential career paths.
Beginning in ninth grade, FRCS centers its college counseling program on working with students individually to identify the colleges and programs that suit them best and form the bridges between their past achievements and future aspirations.
High school students are guided in their registrations for PSATs, SATs, ACTs, and preparatory programs. Tours to college campuses of interest are scheduled each fall for students to get firsthand experience with the schools that interest them.
The results speak for themselves.
“Love is a one-way street. It always moves away from self in the direction of the other. Love is the ultimate gift of our selves to others. When we stop giving we stop loving, when we stop loving we stop growing, and unless we grow we will never attain personal fulfillment; we will never open out to receive the life of God. It is through love we encounter God.” –Mother Teresa
FRCS partners education with formation. Through acts of service, students develop compassion, humility, and mercy as crucial character traits that they will take into their future lives. Jesus Christ taught us to serve through His own acts of service.
Students participate in many opportunities to serve their peers, elders, families, neighbors, and the world. Some of these acts include:
- Nursing home visits
- Handmade cards and crafts for shut-ins and the terminally ill
- Various service jobs on campus including set-up and clean-up of special events
- Operation Christmas Child (both gift boxes and volunteering at distribution center)
- Donation of food to shelters and collection programs
- Senior Mission Trip (location/focus varies each year)
