We have absolutely loved EHA and consider it a branch of our family. The teachers are completed dedicated to the students and the administration is extremely strong in implementing their guidelines and values. The consistency is refreshing, especially during such a tumultuous decade during the pandemic. After searching for many preschools in the area, we discovered Elijah House and fell in love with the classical education model with holistic learning, Christian education, and a true love and respect for the entire child. We feel that our students are safe, accepted, loved, and nurtured to be their best people. We already enrolled again next year and feel blessed to have found such a great fit!

I like this school, I also went when I was a kid. I believe the one on one attention is better than public school. They actually make sure your students know all they are supposed to know.
