My grandchild attends here. She will not come back. Some of the teachers and administrators simply dont go that extra mile for a Christian school. Teachers and the administrators ( who some are Also coaches) --isn't that a conflict of interest?--issue out Demerits and tag on $ for things that could be dealt with by the parent if they were to simply inform us Verbally. It seems that this school is all about sports too. The classwork is fine but it takes forever for the teachers to put their grades in especially if the teacher is a coach. You think your child is passing then if they fail one test ... The grade is almost an F! Tests/quizzes are 50%. Do your research before coming here. My child asked not to come back herself. I agree.

I have two students at Eagle's Landing Christian Academy. One in Elementary and one in high school. We have been part of the ELCA family for 10 years. I can't see my children at any other school. I love that my children are pointed to Christ daily. They have excellent academics, fine arts, and athletics. The godly leadership is wonderful. Thank you ELCA for pouring into my kids!

I have 3 kids at ELCA, and one more about to start in the Fall. We have been here since 2006. It is a wonderful place to educate and to grow in the LORD, Jesus Christ. Our kids have flourished academically, mentally, physically, and most of all spiritually. We are so grateful for our investment in ELCA.

Very attentive teachers in the high school. Students are polite to visitors, making eye contact and smiling or saying hi in the halls. The staff is loving and you feel like they really care about the kids, you can feel it in the way they talk to their students. The teachers understand they're here to grow our kids academically and as a complete person, this is key in the times we are in.

If your student struggles in ANY area of academics- look elsewhere. There are no support measures put in place for students who are failing- and it gets worse in middle school. Students who do not do well are labeled as "capable, but lazy". I agree with the large amounts of homework, and the leaders of this school turn the other cheek. Staff is hired by "who knows who, and who is married/related to who". Not worth the money for the education you would expect.

ELCA is one of those schools that you do not want too many people to be aware of but here I go anyway. My 12 old daughter transferred from from a middle school in the North Fulton area. She made an easy transition socially and academically however she was disappointed that ELCA did not offer Lacrosse. We were also saddend not to see many minority teachers as we are of Asian heritage. Guess it is hard to find Christian Indians and Koreans? We are please because her Stanford scores continue to climb into the 90s so this is a reflection of the higher academic standards. Overall we are satisfied.

This is an outstanding school. Christ is really displayed in all areas. My daughter was in k-5 and scored 98% in reading and 90% in math on her Standford 10 Achievement Test. The school also invest tuition dollars in their program. All monies are visual. It can be seen around campus. Hey......Lets not forget about the teachers, GREAT. Parents can defintely go to work in peace.......

My child was accepted into the school and then had to be withdrawn because the teacher was insistent that she was too "active" and did not fit her mold of how a kindergartner should be. My child was very polite and got along well with other kids. My child transferred the second half of the year at this school and was only in school there nine days and after constant negative feedback from teacher about her being too talkative, we decided to withdraw her. This school has large class size for a private school and they expect students to be like robots and not move unless they say so. My child has never been in discipline trouble and was ahead of the students academically when she transferred there. When we came up to withdraw her, they had the paperwork and her supplies waiting at the front as if we were just a number after we paid over 1400 dollars to get her started. The school seems great from the outside, but everything that glitters is not gold.

My kids attended ELCA for over 5 years, they loved the environment socially . We put them in public school because I could not see making the investment or sacrifice pass the middle or high school. The math department is in need of a lot of work. A large percentage of the kids in my child's 8th grade class room had to pay for tutoring. These kids were tutored by ELCA teachers (supplementing the income of the teachers). Which should be a conflict of interest, but I guess not. If you are considering this school do your home work .

I had 3 children in ELCA for 4 years, it was a great school for their social development & I thought it was in academics as well...but when we moved and I enrolled them in Public Sch...they all were so far behind in math & reading. As of today, it is still a struggle for them, especially Math because when we left ELCA & enrolled them in the other school- they were so far ahead...my kids had to catch up really fast or fail... which is really difficult because math is built upon principles. It was a real struggle for my Middle scher & we had to put her in outside tutorials. If you are looking for a loving Christian environment & safe haven for your kid, it will be a good choice. Just make sure you supplement the core subj so they will be able to pass GA standardize testing.

Great school. My kids were in ELCA for seven years before we moved out of town. The education was excellent. The Christian environment was recognizable. The passion to impact the student's life and education is clear. Thanks.

As parents of a mixed race daughter we were concerned about sending her to what appeared at first to be an all white southern baptist school. There are a few prominant private Christians schools in the area that are not very diverse (all black or white) and therefore not serving their students well in this age. We were pleased to find out that ELCA is racially diverse and more importantly that the curriculum was academically stimulating. We have been pleased thus far as our son is gifted in many areas and yet still challenged. I am particularly pleased that the elementary math program is changing from Abeeka to be more competitive.

The teachers truly care, but some of the administration and counslers are overmatched and/or overworked which which severly affects their performance. The activites at ELCA are nearly on par with public schools, but the enviroment is superior. Along with most private schools the price has dramatically risen the last few years.

We have kids in middle and high school. While we feel this is a MUCH better alternative than public schools the academics are not up to par. The curriculum is not hard enough to prepare for college. This school will start to lose students to other new private schools that are appearing South of town. Also need more AP course - very limited. You know ther eis a problem when your kids complain they aren't challenged.

My children are in middle school and high school at ELCA. They have both been here since K-4. My husband and I could not be happier. He is a public school teacher and he sees the importance of putting our children in a christian environment that offers excellence in academics and sports. I would highly recomment ELCA to any parent. The students leave ELCA as well-rounded individuals prepared for any role they decide to take on in life.

Our kids were in ELCA since they were in pre-K. We moved last year to the Northside and put our kids in another private school. We were very surprised that both of our children were way behind the other children (our children were on honor role at ELCA). It has taken us lots of time and tutoring to get them up to speed with the other students.

We are finishing our second year at ELCA and we are very happy. I have been involved in Christian education for over 30 years and the ELCA leadership is the best, by far. The tuition costs are reasonable for the quality of the programs and facilities. I would recommend ELCA to anyone looking for a Christian alternative to public schools.

ELCA is a good School. However, The leadership is weak. They do not seem to care about discipline problems. It also is clear that the leadership of ELCA will cause the school to lose children to a more academic focused schools that are showing up in the area.

My daughter went to this school last year. Most of the staff and adminstration were very helpful and friendly. I have done my research with other private schools and ELCA needs improvement with supplementing some subjects that are the abeka curriculm. Extra activities are excellent. My child made straight A's at ELCA. However, when she went to the public schools the math and the science she was behind in. I would say do your homework and decide which is more important to you.

This is my 9th year at ELCA and every year it gets better. Academics are stressed and athletics are excellent. It is an AWESOME alternative to public school problems. Price is extremely competitive with other private schools of its caliber at 7K versus 10k and up at Landmark, Our Lady of Mercy and Woodward Academy. For the price and location it's tough to beat and the teachers and coaches really poor their lives into my kids.

I would highly recommend ELCA. Every year they expand their academics and electives. The teachers and administrators are friendly and very helpful. Teachers have websites that keep parents and students updated. Grades are also on the web. The school also uses the website to post the weekly newsletter that goes out. My children have gone to ELCA for eight years.

This is our 1st year enrolled at ELCA, and so far we are impressed. We are a family that have tried public and private schools and thus far we have enjoyed our experience. The curriculum has been challenging but not overwhelming, and our kids seem to have re-discovered a love of learning. ELCA seems to be hidden jewel in Henry County.

This is a wonderful school! They have a very expanded choice of extra activities. The teachers are very nice and involved with the students. The price of attending this school is a very high though. But going there is worth it! The students are also very happy and friendly. I would highly recconmend this school!
