Welcome to First United Methodist Christian School,


FUMCS is a ministry of the First United Methodist Church of Homestead. Our school has provided quality Christian education to Homestead families since 1953. We presently serve children ages 2 (Potty-taught) through 8th grade. We are an accredited member of ACSI (Association of Christian School International), members of UMAP (United Methodist Association of Preschools), licensed by the Department of Children and Families, and are in compliance with all state and local standards governing childcare and preschool programs. We abide by the ratios of ACSI and those of DCF; please know that although we try to accommodate all children, registering early will ensure a spot.

We at FUMCS fully rely on God’s word, and take pride in assisting the parents in raising strong Christian believers. Because we are faithful, He blesses us and makes us prosperous in His Name. Our success in educating children in the ways of the Lord is our main goal and your help is crucial to that development. We take pleasure in our large parental involvement and invite you to become a part of this ministry.

Picking a school for your child is a very important step in the future of your child. While researching schools, it is important that you look at all aspects of the school, from their philosophy, to their practices. If after the above has been completed, you feel that FUMCS is the place for your child, we welcome you with an open heart and a warm greeting.

Please download the enrollment packet from our Registration page. It includes information regarding school hours, registration, tuition, and supply fees as well as charges for before and after care.  Please read over the information carefully and follow the  instructions for completing the registration form.  If you have any questions please call our school office.

First United Methodist Christian School is committed to providing a quality Christian education under Christian leadership in a loving, supportive environment so that  students will excel intellectually, spiritually and socially.
