Enroll in our top-rated academic preschool, elementary/middle school, and child care programs
Prospective families are encouraged to contact the school office to schedule a campus visit, to meet with the school's administrator or preschool director, and to check out the school's unique curriculum. Information packets and enrollment forms may be obtained by calling FWCS's office at (704) 865-9823. A general open house is held in February to give prospective families an opportunity to visit classes and meet FWCS's staff members. Prospective families are given campus tours throughout the school year and students are accepted throughout the school year if class slots are available. Fall registration opens on March 1. Pre-entrance testing is required of all students entering grades K-8. Informal admissions interviews are conducted with all families seeking enrollment.
Enrollment is open to any family who agrees to fully support FWCS's values and lifestyle standards.
All families are required to read the school's Mission Statement and Statement of Faith and must understand that these statements are the foundation of the school's curricula, policies, and educational philosophy. Parents are also required to annually sign their agreement to have their children taught according to First Wesleyan's value system, Statement of Faith, philosophy of education, etc.
First Wesleyan Christian School's biblical role is to work in conjunction with the home to mold students to be Christlike. On occasion, the atmosphere, values, life-style, or conduct within a particular home may be counter or in direct opposition to the biblical lifestyle the school teaches. In such cases, the school reserves the right, within its sole discretion, to refuse admission to an applicant or to discontinue enrollment of a student whose home life openly conflicts with the values of FWCS.
First Wesleyan Christian School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, or any of its other scholarship, athletic, and other programs.
In addition to the above requirements, see the preschool program page for specific preschool admissions requirements.

After homeschooling for seven years, we hesitantly decided to place our children back in regular schools. We chose First Wesleyan for our youngest child. She attended FWCS for grades 6th-8th. It was a great transition for her going from home to Christian to public. She has many fond memories of her days at FWCS.
