Friends Christian School (FCS) exists to develop, nurture, and equip students to positively impact their world for Jesus Christ.

FCS serves more than 1,100 students in preschool through 8th grade. Students come from more than 50 different churches and more than a dozen cities.

FCS is a ministry sponsored by both Friends Church Yorba Linda and Rose Drive Friends Church and has been in operation since 1975. Friends Christian Preschool and the elementary school (kindergarten through fourth grade) operate on the Lakeview Avenue campus of Friends Church Yorba Linda. Little Friends Preschool and the middle school (fifth through eighth grade) are located on the Rose Drive Friends Church campus at the corner of Rose Drive and Bastanchury.

The FCS School Board is comprised of members from both sponsoring churches. Susan Bridgford, Ron Cordova, CC Duffy, Dave Hill, Greg Topp, and Rick Underwood represent Friends Church Yorba Linda. Laurie Harris, John Helvin, Rick Hoegler, Karin Perry, Dorothy Taguchi and Ron Weston represent Rose Drive Friends Church. Greg Topp serves as Board Chairman.
