FBCS high school is dually accredited K-12 with Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and Cognia accredited. Cognia is a non-profit, non-governmental organization that accredits primary and secondary schools throughout the United States and internationally.
Service Hours Requirement for Graduation
At FBCS, we value the positive impact made by our students in the Treasure Coast community. In Hebrews 13:16, we are commanded to “do good and share with others.” We are told these sacrifices please God. As a desire to please God is at the heart of our school, we promote the volunteer efforts of our students.
As a result, we require every graduating Senior to complete a minimum of 100 volunteer hours. However, if a student joins our campus during their high school career, the number of hours is adjusted to reflect the number of years spent in the FBCS high school program.
If a student is seeking a Bright Futures Scholarship, the FBCS volunteer hours will count for the 100 community service hours that Bright Futures requires. (House Bill 461 allows paid work as a substitute for community service hours)
Service, or volunteer hours, can be achieved in many ways. There are often opportunities available on the FBCS campus, which can be accessed through your child’s teacher. Our current high school mission is volunteering at the Stuart Gertrude Walden Child Care Center. GW welcomes high school volunteers. Many students volunteer at their home church by helping with the nursery and children’s church. Students are also welcome to volunteer with the youth group at First Baptist Church or with other approved community groups.
Local Mission for the High School
At FBCS, we have the privilege of serving our community through a local mission trip. During the 2022-2023 school year, we will serve at the Gertrude Walden House.
The mission of the Gertrude Walden Child Care Center
Believing all children are creative and energetic, Gertrude Walden Child Care Center, together with the Executive Board, staff, parents, and community, will be an exemplary model of early childhood that will empower all young children to become effective, enthusiastic, and socially competent learners.
In addition, the high school student of FBCS will have the opportunity to come alongside young learners at the preschool facility.
High School Mission Trips
At FBCS, we offer the opportunity for our students to participate in yearly mission trips that serve people outside our community. They also provide a valuable learning experience.
The typical cost of the trips is between $1,200-$1,500, depending on location. Student scholarships (such as Florida Empowerment or Step Up) can reduce costs.
The 2023 FBCS Mission Trip location is Maui, Hawaii, where we will be volunteering with Maui Rescue Mission.
Past Trip Locations Include:
Alaska Bible College in Palmer, Alaska
Hogar De Vida Children’s Home in Costa Rica
City Relief in New York, NY
