Forest Lake Christian School was founded in 1966 as an independent, evangelical Christian community school. We are a charter member of the Association of Christian Schools International ("ACSI") and welcome students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin.


Choosing the right school has become one of life's most strategic decisions, because that school will help shape the values, philosophy and direction of a young person. It demands a quality choice. Education is not value neutral. Every school will work to shape the worldview of an impressionable child. School is where children learn to think. School is where children learn to work with and relate to others and ultimately it helps determine what their impact will be upon this world. If that whole process includes God's own viewpoint, then our children receive with a truth-laden education which they are able to apply to every aspect of life.
