My girls started at Elvaton Christian Academy when they each turned two years old. Some of the things we enjoyed were the smaller class room settings, the friendly and helpful teachers and staff, but mostly was the Christian values it gave them started at such an early age. We unfortunately had to leave ECA and go to public school. Both of my children made easy transitions into their new schools. In fact they were ahead or right on track in most of their classes. The one thing that they had, that most of their classmates did not, was their strong Christian beliefs that Elvaton had instilled in them. So yes, I highly recommend ECA. It is a wonderful little school with a huge benefits.

My children were truly blessed to have been a part of Elvaton Christian Academy. The education they recieved while there was top notch. The curriculum was accelerated and it allowed my children to have a head start when entering the next grade level in public school. The spirutual guidance and leadership of the staff at ECA influenced them in making good choices in life. The school was small and personal and helped foster strong relationships with families. Parental involvement is encouraged and celebrated! The tuition was very affordable. Elvaton Christian Academy is about quality not quantity. I would highly recommend this school.

Elvaton Christian Academy is a wonderful family environment. Everyone is happy to see each other and are sincerely concerned with your well-being. This serves as wonderful examples of how we all should socially interact. The children learn so much because they know they will receive support when facing challenging work. There are many positive benefits at this school.

I absolutely love this school. It is and has been a blessing to me and my family for many, many years. I came to find out about the school at a very difficult time in my child's life. My child was "falling through the cracks" and the public school system would not give her the individual attention that she so desperately needed. ECA teachers wrapped their loving arms around my child and helped her to read! I am so thankful that God brought this school into my life. My daughter has a strong God-centered foundation that will take her though life. Thank you ECA!

Our family has a very long relationship with Elvaton Christian Academy. My step son & daughter went to K-2nd in 1995-1997. Now my 2 children started attending ECA when they were 3 & 4 years old in the Wee center. My oldest graduates the 8th grade this year. She has attended ECA for 10 years and has loved every teacher and ever experience she has had at this school. My younger daughter will graduate next year and it will be a very sad occasion that our 21 year long relationship with this school will be coming to a close. Our entire family will miss the entire staff. Everyone at ECA is amazing and their main goal is to educate the children and help the parents to raise them in the way of the Lord. This is one of the best private schools you could ever choose to send you child to. I being a 20 year veteran have some knowledge on the subject. All of the staff and children are amazing and you would love all of them and they would all accept you with open loving arms as well. I could go on and on about how wonderful the staff and school is but I am running out of space so you should visit the school yourself and find out how wonderful it is for yourself. From, A Very Grateful Parent

As a parent I love Elvaton Christian Academy. My son does not do well in large groups of people and the small class size at ECA is perfect for him. He gets a lot of one on one attention and he is doing so well there. The teachers are amazing with the kids. He has been going there since pre K and I hope to have him there thru 8th grade.

We can't begin to express how pleased we are with the education our daughter receives at Elvaton. She excels in the smaller class environment. We have peace of mind knowing she is receiving a quality education by loving and caring teachers and staff.

Elvaton Christian Academy Teachers are caring and committed to their students. It is obvious the students love the teachers and staff too. There are many opportunities for parents to be involved in academic and after school activities at Elvaton Christian Academy too. For a parent, knowing your child is learning in a safe, loving and fun environment is a wonderful feeling. Before and After Care is offered for those who need it.

Elvaton Christian Academy is a wonderful school. My three children are eager to learn in this nurturing environment. They provide activities within each class and allow the all the ages to learn from one another. The many role models have been great in setting the expectations I have concerning their behavior. I am comforted in knowing my children are well cared for.

I started with Elvaton Christian Academy in 1984 with my daughter. I love the school and the Godly ministry. The teachers are excellent as well as all the staff. My granddaughter now attends the school and she loves it. The school feels like home. The curriculum is awesome. The learning environment is structured but fun and well rounded. The school is a safe haven for all children. Elvaton is the best. I have been involved for 26 years and love it.

I have both of my children in the WEE program. I love that they are getting a Christ environment, loving teachers and caring staff. I know when I drop my children off they are well taken care of. The smaller class sizes also are great to encourage learning. Recommend Elvaton WEE to everyone I know.

Elvaton Christian Academy is a great school. My son started in kindergarten after interviewing several schools, both public and private, and I was most impressed with Elvaton Christian Academy. Their student to teacher ratio, academic cirriculum, and religious foundation have helped my child grow academically, and also helped my child build morals that include respect, kindness, and always believe in yourself. The teachers and staff at ECA are family and are such a big part of what makes Elvaton a great school and they are the reason the children to excel with all aspects of school and love it while they do it. I love this school and its staff and so does my child! It is not about the money, it is about the children and I have been very impressed with the progress of my child academically.

My 6 year old son goes to Elvaton Christian Academy. We are thrilled with the school. Not only are they very good in academics, they teach the children to love the Lord and on another. This is not a bible thumping group, they teach the bible and speak the truth in love, they are non-judgemental and loving. We attend a different church, and they are very respectful of other church families and denominations. I would highly recommend this school.

We have been very pleased with all aspects of Elvaton Christian Academy. The academic challenge as well as the Spiritual foundation are well inculcated in all the classes. I appreciate the additional emphasis on foreign language and music. Recognizing that public speaking is one of those essential skills I am glad our children have the opportunity to develop those skills in the drama department. For the past eight years our children have been well cared for, challenged and inspired at Elvaton. We would recommend this school to any one seeking a quality education with a solid Christian foundation.

I am a grandparent and 8 of my 10 grandchildren have attended the ECA Preschool and/or Academy over the past 17 years. They have received a wonderful scholastic and spiritual foundation and every one that has gone on to other schools has taken 'honors' classes and excelled. Their love of learning came from the excellent teachers at this academy. I would highly recommend ECA!

The quality of the academic program is above-average. I've seen several students convert from public to our Private school and struggle because they children are not at the level of learning that our children are. ECA tries very hard to work with these children and get them caught up but some have had to go back a grade or got frustrated and just left the school because they could not keep up at the level our children had been taught. The important subjects are covered at an above-average level. The children will now start learning foreign language in the first grade. My hat goes off to Elvaton Christian Academy. I've had a great experience during the 6 years my two children have attended. Furthermore, when I have had problems with bullying or teachers, things have always been handled in a Christian way. I highly recommend ECA!

The quality of the academic program is poor. They use Abeka, but they do not teach every subject in every grade. The music program is minimal. They learn songs for Christmas and the end of the year program. They also learn to play the recorder. Art is a joke. They trace and draw pictures a lot. Parent involvement is highly encouraged and so are christian values. It is not strict like most private schools, but the academic quality is lacking significantly. If you have an above average child, I would go somewhere else.
