School Notes

  • The mission of Eagle's Landing Christian Academy is to glorify God by assisting parents in involving their children in a growing relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ through Kingdom Education.  
  • Eagle's Landing Christian Academy is a Christ-centered, college preparatory Christian school.  The school is located on an 86-acre campus twenty-five miles south of Atlanta. Eagle's Landing Christian Academy offers a well-rounded, biblically based academic program for children grades K-3 through grade 12. 
  • Eagle's Landing Christian Academy is accredited by Advanc-ED/Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). These accreditations qualify our students to be eligible for state scholarships and ensures credit recognition to any college or school in the country. In addition. Eagle's Landing Christian Academy is a member of the Georgia High School Association (GHSA), Region 5-A, Southern Baptist Association of Christian Schools, Association of Christian Schools International and the Council for the Advancement and Support of Education.    
  • Through the School Improvement Plan continuum, we strive to prepare students from the youngest age to progress year by year into students who are capable of succeeding in a rigorous academic setting, taking advantage of Honors and AP courses. This is achieved through an alignment of curriculum and face-to-face, intentional collaboration of teachers of preschool through 12th grade students. The results of this Ethic of Continuous Improvement are students who enter college at higher-than-freshman status and students who are capable of success in any path the Lord has for his or her future.
  • ELCA is particularly proud to note that two current seniors in the Class of 2016 have achieved outstanding SAT scores; one with a perfect score of 2400 and the other with a score of 2350. ELCA is on the forefront of Christian education in providing diverse learning environments for all learners.  One such area in our school is our MERIT program (Multi-faceted Educational Resources and Instructional Technologies), which falls under the auspices of our Student Support Services program.  It is through this cutting edge program that we are able to provide college-prep curriculum to students who are not as successful in a traditional style classroom. These students are able to be in a conducive learning environment in which they thrive and are highly successful.

School Reviews

Our kids have been at ELCA since preschool and we Love it! The teachers really care about the students and keep open communication with the parents. It is great to be at a school where God is the focus but the school excels in academics, sports and fine arts.
