An 8th-Grade Boy’s Testimony About Being a Student at Fremont Christian School

FCS Helps Families in Providing a Safe Place for Students

Fremont Christian School prides itself on being a caring, safe, loving environment where students are free to be themselves and grow as academically, socially, mentally and spiritually as a child of Christ! We invited FCS 8th-grader Matthew Wemple to talk about his journey at FCS. He came to the FCS in search of teachers and fellow students who were kind, accepting and faithful.  What he found brought him joy and got him ready for high school!

Q: Why did you come to FCS?

A: I came to FCS for a new beginning. My parents heard a lot of good things about this school and they thought it would be a great place to learn and grow, and they thought right. On my first day here I was scared of being teased just like I was at my old school and right away if felt accepted. Everyone at this school has been great and welcoming for the past two years.”

Q: What do you like about FCS?

A: I like Fremont Christian School because there is more opportunity to grow in faith. Also in helping to show God’s light to all that we come into contact within the community. The teachers are wonderful. When you are at a rough time, the teachers are always there to help and cheer you up, which some kids never have at other schools. I also like how there are opportunities to help around the school. I help set up for chapel and help with the sound system every Friday, which is fun. There are also other opportunities like keeping the floor clean.

Q: How has FCS prepared you for high school?

A: FCS has prepared me for high school by taking us to Western Michigan Christian School to take a tour so we are more comfortable on our first day. They have told us what to expect in high school, how to take good notes, and also how to act. They also help prepare our spirit to take on the faith challenges.

Why Enroll Your Child at West Michigan Christian Schools? Part 2 – Testimonial

This Parent is New to it all But Certain that Christian Education is the Right Choice for His Family

My oldest is just beyond her first year at Fremont Christian School, so for my wife and I, the journey of Christian education is just beginning.

I wonder what will her favorite Bible story or who her favorite character will be? How will her experience in Spanish Immersion go? How will chapel, Bible class, and Christian teachers influence her in her walk with Jesus? How will God use this unique experience of Christian education to make her into the person He desires her to be?

Being a parent of a student in our Christian schools family brings a fresh perspective on Christian education. I am beyond thankful for this opportunity for my child, and, soon enough, all my three children. I’m excited for them to be at Fremont Christian School! I’m pumped knowing they will get into God’s Word, and learn how it applies to life! They’ll learn how to rely on Jesus when tough times come their way. They’ll know how to rejoice when they see God’s work being done.
