Religion - 2019-20

4 credits required for graduation

Religion classes offer the opportunity to dig deeper into Biblical truths and how to apply them in daily life. The focus is to give all students a solid foundation in the Word by teaching the history of salvation, and by equipping our students with tools to preserve and share their faith.

Even though credits in religion are not normally required for college, a college will recognize some of the credit earned as social studies credit. Transfer students are waived one religion credit requirement for each year away from FVL.
