Highlights From the First Half of the School Year (2021-2022)

January 19, 2022
By Fremont Christian School

As we kick off 2022, FCS wanted to share some of the academic, athletic, and extracurricular highlights from the first half of the school year.

Academics

Fremont Christian School 2021 Year-End MAP ScoresMAP Scores: The majority (70-77%) of our elementary and secondary students scored above the 2020 national normative data on the Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) test. This means that our FCS students are performing at or above pre-pandemic levels –– even after learning from home for the majority of 2020 and even part of 2021.

We are heartened to see this level of achievement in our students, due largely in part to our dedicated teachers and supportive parents, who sought to make the “new normal” as conducive to learning as possible.

Student Satisfaction. The Student Satisfaction Survey, facilitated by Charter Oaks Research organization, showed that 75% of our secondary students rated FCS as a “very friendly” atmosphere, the highest rating in that category. That is a much higher percentage than Charter Oaks typically sees from other schools, as normally even a score of 50% is considered very good!

Student Participation. We want to celebrate that our students take advantage of the many “big school” opportunities at FCS: 90% are involved in performing arts and/or athletics. Their participation builds community, character, and skills that will transfer to college and career!

Athletics

FCS Warriors Volleyball Fall 2021Girls’ Varsity Volleyball. Our team went undefeated the entire season and won both the Bay Counties League (BCL) Tournament and B.C.L. League Championship, with a record of 14-0. The Warriors also claimed the #1 seed in the California Interscholastic Federation North Coast Section Playoffs (CIF NCS). And, for the first time in school history, the volleyball team hosted a NorCal playoff game. Way to go, Warriors!

Boys’ Varsity Soccer. The team ended an incredible season with a 13-7-1 record and a second-place finish in our BCL League. They also qualified for the NCS Division 3 playoffs, surging all the way to the NCS championship game, where unfortunately they lost 1-0 in an epic battle against Valley Christian.

Additionally, the team earned the North Coast Section (NCS) Scholastic Championship Team Award for fall 2021. This award is presented to the top three NCS varsity teams in each division or classification in each sport with the highest composite GPA of 3.0 or above. Recognizing that there are 179 schools in the NCS, this is indeed an outstanding achievement.

Girls’ Junior High Softball. We finished 6-4 and qualified for the league playoff tournament. We are so proud of our girls, many of whom had not played prior to this season. With each game, they improved tremendously and fought hard — and with heart.

Boys’ Junior High Baseball. Our 7-3 record helped propel us all the way to the year-end championship tournament, where our team showed tremendous fortitude to finish third.

Both JH softball and baseball showed enormous growth throughout the season and proved to have resilient mindsets. We are super excited to see what the future holds for our junior high sports program.

School & Community Events

See You at the Pole (Sep. 22). Our Warrior students took part in this global event, in which participants meet at flagpoles to pray for their school. It is estimated more than 1,000,000 students participate yearly. More Info

Athlete Spotlight: Freshman Tennis Star Katy Wu

December 16, 2019
By FCS Athletic Department

FCS freshman athlete Katy W. took the tennis circuit by storm this year, winning the BCL Singles League and becoming the 2019 tournament champion. Katy finished 17–0 in league with the tournament and 18–1 for the year, losing only two sets all year in N.C.S. And she is just getting started!

Her coach, Brent Way, said about Katy: "For a freshman to do what she did is amazing, I am so glad I had an opportunity to coach her this year. She should do even better next year."

2019 Fall Athletics Highlights

December 16, 2019
By FCS Athletic Department

Our FCS Warriors had a fantastic fall season, so we wanted to share a brief overview of each individual fall sport from our secondary school. 

FCS Fall Sports Highlights:

  • High School Cross Country had a great year, with seven runners moving on to run in NCS.
  • The High School Girls' Volleyball season was one for the ages, as the girls were 19-3 while winning the BCL League Championship, coming in 2nd place in NCS, and earning a birth in the NorCal Regionals.
  • Led by Katy W., the High School Girls' Tennis team had a very strong year while Katy was nearly unstoppable winning the BCL Singles Championship and earning a NCS birth while only losing two sets the entire year.
  • High School Boys' Soccer earned a birth in NCS, being led by a very strong senior group who finished the season as the runners up in the BCL Tournament.
  • The Junior High Softball team put up an incredible record after losing many of their players from last season to graduation. Going 7-1 in their league, they won their league's regular season this year.
  • The Junior High Baseball team overcame the odds of playing against club programs to win their league championship. Led by the 8th grade battery of Chris K. and Kamaile N., the baseball team overpowered opposing hitters and came up with the big hits to win the big game.

Congratulations to all of our athletes for all their successes this fall and for representing our school so well across the board.
