Preschool
Our preschool program can be the foundational block upon which a child’s experience at Fort Myers Christian School is built. This is the entry level program into our school. The program structure and curriculum design set the focus towards beginning a young child’s adventure in education. Emphasis is placed on nurturing each child in all areas of his or her own progression of development. The philosophy is integrated with hands-on learning through various discovery experiences. This foundation of creative development is outlined in the theme of our pre-kindergarten, which is “Discovering God’s World.”

Elementary
First Assembly of God and Fort Myers Christian School welcomes you to our new Children’s Center building which houses grades PK-4th! We praise the Lord that your children have an opportunity to enter a building that was built debt-free (a great relief to our tuition paying parents), a place that desires to see young boys and girls grow spiritually, academically and physically. Our dedicated teachers and staff have committed their lives to the call of teaching and will do all they can to create a great atmosphere for learning. We encourage you to visit our school and take a tour. For more information, please contact us.

Middle School
Our middle school consists of students in grades 6th-8th grade. Core classes include: math (6th grade – regular math; 7th grade – math or pre-algebra; 8th grade – pre-algebra or algebra), science, language arts, history, bible, one semester of Spanish and one semester of physical education. During the last period of the day, elective period, students have been able to choose from: drama, computer, art, teacher aide, study hall, yearbook business, yearbook layout, ensemble, and science fair. Students will switch classes on a bell schedule, use lockers, and wrap the day up with homeroom. Join with us in prayer that these students will make a great transition to middle school as they enter this time of their adolescent growth! We encourage you to visit our school and take a tour. For more information, please contact us.

Specials
We are very blessed to have teachers that help our students to grow in many different ways at our school. “Specials” include Physical Education, Spanish, Music, Computer and Art. K-5th students visit these teachers once a week. Our 6-8 grade students have an opportunity to choose teachers for special electives during their last class period of the day. These electives include: Computer Webpage Design, Computer Eagles News Team, Art, Teacher Aide, Yearbook Publishing, Yearbook Business, Drama, Science Fair, and Study Hall.
