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.

Our senior classes at FHCS may be relatively small compared to some area schools, but they certainly don’t lack in academic quality.  The 2017 graduating class was made up of 3 students and their average composite ACT score was 27.7.  Two of the students, both of whom attended FHCS starting in kindergarten, are attending Kansas State University on Putnam Scholarships while the third member of the class is attending Manhattan Christian College.

This year’s senior class has six students and four of them have attended Flint Hills Christian School since kindergarten.  The average composite ACT score for this group of four students is an outstanding 31.5. Annual reports from ACT show FHCS seniors at 27.7 compared to a state average of 21.7. For more information see the ACT College Readiness Letter August 2017

Scholarships
Academic Scholarships Available

The Shella Surowski Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 2016 to assist those in financial need.  Ms. Surowski was a longtime Spanish teacher and guidance counselor at FHCS who touched many lives with her quick wit, loving heart and true warrior determination to help her students learn and grow. 

Scholarship Funds

There are two different types of endowed scholarship funds available to students at Flint Hills Christian School. The General Scholarship fund provides assistance for families needing it the most. The Cindy Blanchard Scholarship is rewarded to students in the greater Manhattan community with an outstanding academic record.

Scholars Bowl
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!
