Admissions Policy

Fort Myers Christian School is open to all qualified students regardless of race, color, national or ethnic origin. It does not discriminate in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarships, financial aid, or any other school administered programs. The Admissions Committee evaluates applicants on the basis of the application, the candidate’s transcripts, teacher recommendations, character and educational recommendations, disciplinary profile, educational history, academic assessment, and an interview with our Head of School. All students must meet our minimum Admission Criteria and be in good academic and behavioral standing at their last educational institution and eligible to return to school. We also require that at least one member of the student’s immediate family is a born again believer as stated in John 3:3. Here is a link to Our Statement of Faith. In considering applicants, the Admissions Committee analyze a number of factors to determine a student’s fit for our program, which will include (but are not limited to) a student’s academic strengths, former school record, unique talents, desire to learn, and faith background. Since FMCS is not adequately prepared to meet the needs of every student who applies, our admissions procedures are designed to help both the school and the parents make the best possible decision for the education of their child. Submission of an application and fee does not guarantee admission. Fort Myers Christian School Admission Committee reserves the right to deny admission to any student on the basis of the admission criteria or if the committee does not believe the school can adequately serve the needs of the student. All student application and assessment records will remain confidential and property of Fort Myers Christian School and will not be released to applicants. All admission decisions are final. Due to the competitive nature of the admissions process, prospective families are encouraged to visit our school in advance to application and to apply early.

“I wanted to express my appreciation for FMCS’s significant impact on Elijah and Naomi last year. The staff showed dedication, passion, and guidance towards their spiritual, academic, and personal growth. The kids miss the school dearly, and so do I. Moving has shown us that finding schools and teachers with academic excellence is challenging. Thank you for everything that has been done and will be done in many children’s and their families’ lives. God bless you all!!!!”

“We wanted to say another huge THANK YOU to you and your staff!! The 2020-2021 school year is almost over and has been a success. The extra efforts put forth by all of the FMCS staff have been exceptional!! We have been thrilled to attend Feed The Need, the Christmas program, Grandparent’s Day, soccer games, the Sports Banquet and we look forward to next week’s end-of-year Award Ceremony. It saddens us knowing so many students and families in the area or around the country have not had the same opportunities. FMCS HAS DONE IT RIGHT AND WITH EXCELLENCE!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!”

“My name is Christine Swiersz. My husband, Tom, and I have had the great blessing of having all four of our daughters graduate from Fort Myers Christian School. The sixteen consecutive years our four daughters have attended FMCS have impacted our family and each of our lives in ways that words can never describe. All six of us have been changed for a lifetime. We have grown in our relationships, in our academic strengths, and, most of all, in our faith. Our children have grown exponentially in their faith in amazing ways, and so have my husband Tom and I!”

“I’m a proud alumni of FMCS. I loved everything about my time as an Eagle! When it came time to choose a school for our son, there was no place else we would rather send him. We look forward to seeing him grow during his time at FMCS!”

“We chose to send Elizabeth to FMCS because we wanted our daughter to be surrounded by teachers and staff that would help her to grow academically and spiritually. As an alumni, one thing that always stuck out in my mind was how the school always felt like home. The teachers and staff were so devoted to their students and made us feel like family. FMCS became our number one choice because of the caring teachers and staff.”

“I decided to send Emma to FMCS because, I wanted her to grow up with a solid Christian foundation. I knew that at FMCS she would not only receive a great academic education, but also a great faith-based education as well. I loved my time at FMCS and know a lot of the staff from when I attended. Starting school this year is unlike any year before and I knew that I could trust FMCS to keep her safe and allow her to learn and grow while still having fun. I had no doubts that Emma would be in good hands and would be loved by all of the school personnel.”

“I didn’t just want a private school education for my sons, I wanted it to be a biblical, Christ centered one. Having had Mel Mitchell as my principal and friend when I was a student, I know first hand his sincere love for Christ and his Word. FMCS is a reflection of that love and leadership.”

“It was a joy to watch Johnathon grow in his faith and his academic ability while at Fort Myers Christian school from 1st – 8th grade. We knew when we first visited FMCS, that there was such a presence of faith in the school – even our family that visited Johnathon there felt the same way. I’ll never forget the night a first grade teacher at FMCS called to tell me that she had heard of our interest in the school, that they were ready with open arms to take Johnathon in, to “love” him, and to work with him and his learning challenges. Through the years, she remained true to her word, as did the many other wonderful teachers at FMCS. A couple of years ago, during his finals week in high school, the exams were quite comprehensive. When I picked him up after school I asked him how it was all going. He said, “If I hadn’t learned everything that I learned at Fort Myers Christian School, these tests would be a lot harder. I learned so much there, mom.” How’s that for affirmation? We are so grateful to Fort Myers Christian School for laying a solid foundation for our son.”
