Eagles Nest Christian Academy in Milton, DE is an interdenominational Christian school offering classes for Pre-K through eighth grades.
Our academic standards are among the highest in the state of Delaware.
While academics are an important part of a child's life we also believe that shaping character is equally important.
Christian principles are woven into all facets of a student's life at ENCA.
Whether in the classroom, the playground or the cafeteria we stress the importance, and encourage the development of Christlike character in all of our students.
While we believe the home is the most important learning and growing environment for a child we strive to compliment that training through a Godly, competent faculty and administration.
