Wonderful school and staff! I would highly recommend this school, the children learn so much and seem to be so far ahead of other schools. This isn't just a school it is a family!

ECA has been a wonderful experience for me as well as my children. My family was welcomed with open arms and it has been that way all 4 years we have been there. I can't imagine sending my children to any other school. They have been challenged academically in a Christ centered curriculum. I want my children to be pushed to excel but also taught in a loving environment. I have not been disappointed!

ECA has provided a wonderful atmosphere for both of my children. The students are definitely challenged academically, however, as you would expect in a Christian school, Christ is at the center of the curriculum. My children have certainly grown academically, but more importantly they are developing character and that will serve them for the rest of their lives. The teacher's are very personable and clearly have a love for children. The school itself has a famly atmosphere and is not "stuffy" like some academy's. I would definitely recommend ECA to any parent who seeks an alternative to public schools. The combination of small class sizes, lack of disciplinary problems, a Christ-centered environment and achievement test scores that far exceed those of the surrounding schools makes for a compelling opportunity.

We have been very pleased with ECA and the Christian environment my child has received this year. We knew going into the school year that she would be challenged beyond belief b/c of the Beka curriculum ECA uses. She has learned so much academically which is preparing her for future schooling. However, her new knowledge of the Bible is preparing her for eternity.

Unfortuately, we had a miserable experience at this school. With the exception of one very special teacher, the 3 years spent there were miserable for my son and I. His confidence was utterly shattered. He managed decent grades (mostly A's and B's with a few C's) but somehow this was not satifactory to the school's teachers and principal and my son was treated poorly and we had several meetings over his grades. The curriculum is unbelievable. I have known home-schoolers who have used the same curriculum and it was not as challenging as the way ECA presented it. They started Kindegartners on cursive writing within the first few weeks of school. For the nearly $8,000 we wasted over 3 years, my son could have been excelling in the public school we're in now (earning all A's) and we could have saved alot of money.

ECA was created to place Christ at the Center of Academic excellence. My son has gone to ECA for 3 years. I am very impressed with their academic program. He is also involved in their sports program. There are many ways for parents to be involved in their children's education. I would recommend ECA to any Christian family.

This rapidly growing, private school focuses on how to equip children to function and succeed in the world. This Christian environment is for the above average academically inclined student.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
