Fremont Christian School (FCS) junior high Lady Warrors win the 2017 Bay Area Christian Schools Championship!

For the second year in a row, FCS has won the BACSAL Championships. They had a thrilling come-from-behind win in the Semi-Finals versus the previously undefeated Tabernacle team.

In the Semi-Finals, McKenna N. had four hits and scored three runs. Keely C. had three hits and also scored three runs. The big hit of the game was in the last inning by slugger Veronique V. who had a clutch hit with the bases loaded to tie the game. FCS would take the lead on Leia G.'s RBI, and win the game 10-9. Michelle C. scored two runs, and Gayoung L. had stellar defense.

In the Championship game, it was a defensive showcase. McKenna N. only allowed three hits the entire game, and also led off with a home run! The big hit came from Taliyah H. who had a base hit and came all the way around to score on an errant throw. The middle infield was great defensively in this game. Kayla C., our shortstop, had four good plays, while Leia G. threw out a runner at home to end the third inning, and also threw out a runner for the last play of the game. Sixth graders Audrey A. and Bethany G. were key contributors to both games. These Lady Warriors won 3-1 against San Ramon Valley.

"To win back-to-back BACSAL Championships here at Fremont Christian School is an amazing accomplishment, and I could not be any prouder of our girls. They put in all the work throughout the season, and deserve it," said Coach Gomez.

Congrats to the Fremont Christian Lady Warriors on an amazing Championship run!

The Siemens Competition is the nation’s premier competition in math, science and technology for high school students.  Every year, students submit innovative individual and team research projects to regional and national levels of competition as they vie for college scholarships ranging from $1,000 up to $100,000. The Siemens Competition honors the best and brightest students for their accomplishments in math and science – students who are changing the world for the better.

This year, out of the more than 1860 projects submitted, 491 students are being recognized as semi-finalists. This select group of students and their notable projects are judged to determine who advances on to 6 regional competitions held in November. Individual and team winners of the regional contests earn the opportunity to compete in the National Finals held at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. in December where $500,000 in scholarships will be awarded, including two top prizes of $100,000.

The prize, launched by the Siemens Foundation in 1999, was established to increase access to higher education for students who are gifted in STEM and is based on the culture of innovation, research, and educational support that is the hallmark of Siemens.  This competition seeks to recognize and build a strong pipeline for the nation’s most promising scientists, engineers and mathematicians.

Congratulations to these students and their outstanding accomplishments.

2018 National Merit Scholarship Commended

October 10, 2017
By Admissions Office

Every October, students enter the National Merit Program by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT®)—a test which serves as an initial screening of approximately 1.6 million juniors each year—and by meeting published program entry and participation requirements.

FCS offers this exam to all 11th grade students in October during the school day. Students in grades 9-10 also get a chance to view and practice the SAT with their own versions of the PSAT in October.

Last school year, in our of a class of 63 seniors, 3 students earned all three levels national merit status. Jocelyn S. earned Commended, Daniel F. earned Semi-Finalist, and Leon W. earned Finalist. By earning this distinction and honor, those seniors were recognized as being in the top 4% of the nation from all high schools.

In the 2017-18 school year, there are 34,000 students being recognized for their exceptional academic promise as National Commended Students. Of more than 1.6 million students who took the PSAT NMSQT, these students are among the top 50,000 scorers. These students will be recognized by colleges for this very exceptional honor through their college applications and potential scholarships.

This year, FCS is so proud to announce five seniors who have just been announced as National Merit Commended students. Today, we want to award the following students their National Merit Commended Letters, please join me in congratulating: Ivan C., Solomon C., Joshua M., Ritu M., and Allen W.

If you would like a chance to join this elite group of students in the nation, your chance is coming up this October! All juniors will take the qualifying PSAT/NMSQT while the 9th and 10th graders will take preliminary practice exams through the PSAT 9, 10 and Pre-ACT.
