Please note:

Students are not allowed on facility location unless they are registered in a class, or a study hall period, or attending an event. This is required to keep all students, tutors and the Hillside Christian Fellowship building safe. Registered students are welcome to attend Chapel and lunch time (between 12:10 - 1:00 pm).

Students attending a full day of Monday classes may not leave the campus unless FCCT Leadership, or the student's tutor(s), is notified by a parent. This includes times during the Chapel & Lunch hour. As stated in FCCT's Parent - Student Handbook, "All teens participating in the program must be supervised at all times" while on campus.


FCCT is for junior high and senior high school age students age 12-18. Participating students must be 12 yrs. old by November 1st and 18 or under by the beginning of the term.

Schedule Overview:

Classes meet once-a-week on Mondays with 4 class periods from 9:00 AM – 3:10 PM. We offer two 16 week terms per year: Fall (Sept-Jan) and Spring (Jan-May). We offer core classes (science, math, English, social studies, etc.) for 7th/8th and 9th/12th, as well as, elective classes (art, finance, character, music, languages,computer, etc.) for all grades.

Periods 1 & 2 are 1.5 hours long to accommodate core classes. Whild periods 3 & 4 for electives are 1 hour long.

CORE classes will have higher expectations of students, parents and tutors, and are meant to be our academic courses. CORE classes are typically year-long and scheduled 1st and 2nd periods (but can be scheduled to fit a tutor's needs).

ELECTIVE classes are your fun, more laid back classes that are not necessarily academically focused. These classes are scheduled 3rd and 4th periods. Student-taught classes also are considered ELECTIVES.

Classes are broken down by grade by curriculum level and tutor planning. If you feel your child could participate in a class that is outside the listed grade range, please speak with the tutor of that class. Core classes will generally run both terms to complete the program year.

Fees and Tuition:

First Class Clackamas Teens Program charges a family term registration fee of $60 each term (fall and spring). This is due with your membership request (no registration application will be processed without it) and before signing student(s) up for classes.

Class fees/tuitions are paid directly to the tutor each term based on the payment schedule listed in the class catalogue. The class fee/tuition is listed in 2 ways by term and by month. The first is the total cost for the class for the term (i.e. $120). The second amount listed is the cost per month (i.e. $30). Since the term is 16 weeks it would equal 4 months (i.e. $30 x 4 months = $120). You may pay either way unless a tutor specifies otherwise.

Class Change Fees and Cancellations:

Please note that classes changed after the last day of registration will incur a $10 administrative fee payable to FCCT. There are no refunds for missed classes. Please pay the Tutors either in full at the beginning of the term, or in 4 payments on the first Monday of each Month. Once you sign up for a 16 week term, it is expected that you will complete that term and are responsible for the class fees of that term. If an emergency arises and you will not be able to complete the term, please let FCCT and the tutor know as soon as possible. A tuition fee reduction may be possible.
