At Fort Worth Christian, we partner with parents to be a Christ-centered, college preparatory school. While at FWC, it is our mission to ensure that every one of our students is known, loved, and valued, taught excellence in and out of the classroom, and empowered by a biblical worldview. It is our prayerful hope that every graduate of FWC would live a life of faith, service, and leadership for Christ. We invite you to join us!

There are several ways a future Cardinal can visit our campus. After you have reviewed our website and social media, please register in advance for an Open House group preview event or contact Admissions to schedule a personal tour at a time that is most convenient for you.
Once you have toured the campus, we strongly encourage future students to come back to campus to be a “Cardinal for a Day” where we have your child (1st Grade through Upper School) shadow one of our student ambassadors or with a pre-arranged teacher (Lower School). This must be pre-scheduled through our Admissions Team, so they can determine a day that will offer the best experience for your child.
At FWC, you will complete your application online. You will need to create an account and then a new student application. In addition to basic student and current school information, you will also include immunization records, previous report cards, achievement test results, and applicable transcripts (9th-12th). You will also have an opportunity to review our handbook, understand our substance abuse policy, and submit requests for recommendations. It sounds like a lot, but it will not take you that long and it gives us the best way to get to know your son or daughter. The Admissions Team will work with you along the way to ensure all necessary documents are in place. Due at this time will be an application fee (the academic assessment fee is included).
FWC requires an age-appropriate academic success assessment for all applicants. This is not a pass-fail entry test; rather, this assessment offers our Admissions Committee the best evaluation of your child’s current educational achievement. For grades 2-12, in addition to the computer test of mathematics and reading, we will ask the student to write a short essay to be completed in a comfortable, private environment. Again, this is not meant to intimidate your child or make them overly nervous. We just want to know as much about your child as we can during this admissions process.
All new students applying for enrollment into the 9th-12th grades will be required to submit to a drug screening prior to being considered for admission. FWC covers the cost of this screening for you. Official results of the drug screening, administered by an approved and an FWC-authorized facility will be provided to FWC within the time specified by the administration. The Admissions Team will issue you the appropriate drug screening paperwork and information so you will know where and when to go.
Once the application file and academic assessment are complete, the file will be advanced to the appropriate division to schedule the admissions interview. For students applying for grades PK4-5th Grade, the admissions interview will consist of the division head and the parents*. For students applying for grades 6–12, the interview process will include the student by her/himself as well as a parent meeting.
*When parents are joint conservators, those with educational rights will be invited to participate in the interview as part of the admissions process.
The Admissions Committee meets regularly to review each admission decision. In a prayerful and thoughtful review of each student, we ask for wisdom and discernment about whether or not FWC will be the best fit for each student and vice versa. Sometimes, additional information is needed (relating to academics, behavior, or other history) which can extend the decision-making time. Because we know parents and students are eager to know one way or another, we do our very best to get a response to each family as soon as possible. Our Admissions Team can give you a status update at any time in the process.
Once a positive admission decision has been reached, the family is notified by phone immediately. Decline decisions are most often notified by mail.
Congratulations - you are a Cardinal!
- At this time, if a student is accepted, the family may also choose to apply for financial assistance.
- You may now complete online enrollment, including the payment of enrollment fee.
- Each new family will need to arrange for payment of tuition.
You are now finished. Welcome to the FWC community!
“My girls have really blossomed and are being equipped with the tools necessary to be ready for college. Most importantly, they are being taught a biblical worldview.” -Scott Frechette, Upper School Parent, Colleyville
“When faced with the decision to move our son from public to private school last year, I was apprehensive about making such a huge commitment. I know all parents want the very best for their child and I can faithfully attest to the fact that Ft Worth Christian is exactly where God wants us to be. They sincerely live their mission statement and I am utterly humbled by how much my son is "known, loved and valued'. I am blessed to know that he is receiving an outstanding education and is being led in true fellowship each and every day!” - Tiffany Morgan, Middle School Parent, North Richland Hills
"While only our first year, we feel a part of the FWC family. From the admissions staff to the teachers, we were welcomed with love!" - Kristie Peters Weaver, Lower School Parent, Trophy Club
