Academics

We strive for academic excellence at FHCS in the core subject areas of social science, literature and language arts, mathematics, science, and Bible. Courses in fine arts, foreign language, and technology are also offered through the 12th grade. FHCS seniors annually have the highest average composite ACT scores of any school in the region. The five (5) year composite average ACT score for FHCS seniors is 24.3 compared to a state average of 21.9. The fall of 2016 saw two of our high school students register ACT scores of 35 and 32, respectively. For more information see the ACT College Readiness Letter August 2016

What is Scholars Bowl?

Scholars Bowl features regional team competition in the academic areas of social studies, language arts, math, science, fine arts, and, at times, foreign-languages. Also included are current events, sports and politics from the past year.  In a typical meet, teams compete in several rounds which test their knowledge and ability to work together under pressure. It’s also a great deal of fun for the participants, support staff and fans!
