My daughters attended Evangelical Christian Academy for many years... too many years. This school gives Christian education a bad name. When I finally moved them to another school, they were behind in almost every subject.
ECA soured me on "Christian education" forever; both "Christian" and "academy" are misnomers. The education was so substandard in some areas that I had to do remedial work to succeed in college, even though I graduated with a 3.6 from ECA (which I had attended since kindergarten). I went from being a sincere Christian involved in my church to loathing evangelicals and avoiding church because of the lies, malice, hypocrisy, and ugliness of certain administrators and teachers. The bullying was so bad that I became suicidal, but my parents were told by teachers and the principal that it would be worse anywhere else and I "just had to develop a tougher skin." I can't emphasize strongly enough what a bad experience I had at ECA. If I could live my life over, I would drop out the day I turned 16 and get a GED before enduring a single extra second at that place.
As parents of two students at ECA, we couldn't be happier with the school. It offers a Christ-centered education that challenges and encourages its students daily to do their best academically for the glory of the Lord. I encourage any parent searching for a school that will partner with them in raising Godly young adults to visit the school and find out what a wonderful experience it will be for your family!
We put our 5 year old daughter in 1/2 day kindergarten here after having a very unpleasant experience in the public school. She thrived! This school is so accepting and personal. Her teacher was nurturing and loving and made her feel welcome every day. The other kids were well behaved. She had a great year there.
ECA holds true to their mission statement. They assist families in providing a Christ-centered education of high academic quality so that students may be prepared to take an active, vital place, in the home, the church, the state, and in their future vocations by applying Christian principals in a biblical manner that is glorifying to God. At ECA, we are a family. We partner together with God to bring each child to their full potential in Christ. We believe that those who put their hope in the Lord will renew their strength; they will soar with wings like eagles, they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. (Isaiah 40:31)At ECA, students are World Changers. I live with three of them!
