    FREE APPLICATION FOR FOR FEDERAL STUDENT AID
    FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) applications are due March 2. The filing period for the application is Jan 1-Mar 2.

By attending and filing the necessary forms, students will be entered to win a $1,000 scholarship.

    SPIRIT WEAR
    The site will be online for a little less than one week so that FC can order by bulk to save money. On Feb. 3 at 5 pm the site will go offline so Priceless Kreations can begin to process our orders. Orders will be delivered to school on Thursday, Feb. 13. FC’s goal is to reduce the cost of spirit wear for the Fresno Christian Community by creating a seasonal bulk order process. The site will still be available between bulk order promotions, however, with limited options and higher price points. Be sure to take advantage of the expanded selection and lower prices during the bulk order! Check out the new spring wear designs for windbreakers and visors! You can personalize your t-shirt by adding your name, number or grad year on the back.
