School Notes:


ECS features challenging academics, licensed teachers, small classes, extensive technology, and involved parents. ECS is fully accredited by the State of Indiana, the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), and AdvancED (formerly the North Central Association). Our ISTEP scores consistently rank among the top 5% of all schools in the State. ECS is an “A” rated, Four-Star, “high achievement/high growth” school per the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE).

Woven into the fabric of our curriculum is a solid focus on helping children develop the skills, knowledge, and values that will enable them to excel in life. In addition to traditional courses, our curriculum includes Bible, phonics-based reading, Accelerated Reading, inquiry-based science, STEM, technology, music, band, art, media center/library, P.E., and Spanish. We also offer numerous extra-curricular clubs, activities, and athletics.

Through our relationships with parents, pastors, and the community, ECS serves as a unifying ministry. More than 75 churches are represented in our student body and many students do not have church home (ECS has an open enrollment policy). We have a staff of 70 employees, including 50 teachers. All teachers are licensed by the State and ACSI; and all are considered “highly qualified” by IDOE. ECS was founded in 1975 and incorporated in 1990 as a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation. Our annual budget is approximately $4 million.
