Equipping Mind & Heart

Fostering intelligence and integrity

When you choose to send your child to Faith Christian School, you and your child will become a part of the Faith Christian family. Our holistic approach to education cultivates a community where friendships are forged, conflicts are addressed with compassion and Truth, service with humility is a priority, and your child is encouraged to be his or her best self.
Your child will benefit from small class sizes, a curriculum designed for excellence, caring teachers and staff, time in the day to play, community service opportunities, and a safe distraction-free environment, all through a biblical worldview.

We know true excellence is accomplished when both the mind and heart are equipped well. Therefore, it's our mission to help your child grow spiritually, academically, physically, and socially to prepare him or her to be an exceptional leader. (1 Cor. 10:31, 2 Tim. 3:14-17, Luke 2:52, Phil. 2:1-7).

Unparalleled Environment


“We are so thankful our daughter is attending Faith Christian. It’s a place where her kind heart is protected and fostered, while being allowed to excel in what she is good at and strengthened in her weaknesses. We feel she is being given a strong foundation that will serve her well in high school. Although, we’re praying Faith Christian will have a high school by then…”  -Sonya and Nik Rhiley


Our History


Our story began in 1984 when Grace Fellowship Church in Kearney launched a small non-denominational Christian elementary school called Kearney Christian School. Twenty students and two teachers in K-6 quickly grew into a viable elementary school.


Then in 1995, a small group of parents realized the need for a non-denominational Christian middle school. In 1996, through prayer and hard work, ten students in grades 6-8 were taught at Faith Christian School by one teacher at Trinity Presbyterian Church.


In 1998, Kearney Christian and Faith Christian united under the name Faith Christian for grades K-8 and gained state accreditation in 1999. After a series of moves to accommodate our growing numbers, we built our own facility and moved in for first day of classes in 2010.

We’ve come a long way from two teachers with twenty students. Through it all, God has remained faithful, and we are excited to watch Him work as we equip our next generation of leaders.
