“Evangelical Christian Academy feels like family! They have small class sizes and a strong Christian classical academics curriculum. ECA is the only Christian School in Colorado Springs that offers this unique mix. Most importantly the teachers care about each student and Christ is at the center of their teaching!”

This is a safe place to share your honest opinions of a school, whether good or bad.
The secondary school underwent a transition a few years ago to its Omnibus program and the students were buried in homework. If you play a sport plan to get about 6 hours of sleep at night because you will be up late doing homework.
The fake 5 star reviews that were written by administrators and teachers posing as parents and students seem almost real until you take a closer look at them. You will notice that most of the 5 star reviews are short and not too individual. In fact, lots of them have wording copy and pasted right from the ECA website. In contrast the 1 star reviews seem real and genuine from real people that were hurt deeply. ECA is extremely dysfunctional. I will say the superintendent is doing a great job of running a school into the ground. I think he will have the doors completely closed in about 3-5 years at the pace they are losing students at. If you are a Christian parent that wants a Christian education for your children do not go here. You have been warned.
Once our son adjusted to the workload he seems to be able to complete most assignments on time. The study hall period is very helpful and Mrs. Singleton does a great job helping our son be successful with knowing the expectations.
This is our first year at ECA. Our son is an eighth grader and although there has been an adjustment period, he is now doing well. I am impressed by the commitment and follow through to help him succeed. He makes positive comments quite frequently regarding his academic experiences! I am grateful that we have found this school. Everyone from the shuttle driver to the school administration has been supportive and encouraging!
I have a strong desire for my children to experience the love and truth of the Lord in all the major institutions of their lives - family, church, and school. The faculty and staff of ECA provides this experience along with a top-tier education.
The school has to promote those values because it is basing it's motivations and goals on the Bible. If God's Word acts as the backdrop for everything you do, honesty, integrity, and fairness are a natural by-product of that.
My daughter has been attending since first grade and she thrives in the ECA culture. The love of Christ is evident through the administration and teachers down to the students. It encourages me as a father to see a school so dedicated to upholding the Bible and everything it stands for.
