East Memorial Christian Academy (EMCA) is a spiritual and educational ministry of East Memorial Baptist Church (EMBC).
Our mission is to glorify Jesus Christ while shaping the hearts and minds of our students’ for a lifetime of Christian service.
As such, we constantly strive to provide our students with a Christ-centered education that addresses their spiritual, cognitive, social, and physical needs.
We strive to include the critical elements of our students’ family along with caring Christian teachers who employ Bible-based curriculum.
Together we accomplish our “One Family – One Focus” approach to education.
Due to rapid and continue growth, we moved into a $10M newly-constructed facility in July 2007.
We will continue to make improvements to our processes, infrastructure, and curriculum.
A major goal is EMCA to be the “Go-to School for Science and Math.” We want to be the first school parents think of when looking at Science and Math programs.
