School Notes

  • The education program at Elvaton Christian Academy is committed to academic excellence and is designed to promote the development of knowledge, wisdom, and critical thinking, which are the skills required in academic pursuits and all of life. Strong academic teaching with a Biblical worldview provides students with the competency and inner strength necessary for success in life. The Cornerstone of Elvaton Christian Academy is its commitment to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Our educational philosophy is derived from the Bible. From Scripture we obtain knowledge about children that teach us those essentials needed to nurture a student to become all he/she can be. From Scripture we obtain direction, discernment, and the insight into instruction with God's perspective. We become partners with parents to accomplish their God given responsibilities toward their children.

I taught at ECA for 22 years. I can't imagine a better life as a teacher. God blessed me immeasurably by letting me go to such a loving place to "work." The kids are lively and we had so much fun learning and singing and playing together. The teachers enjoy each other. I praise God for that wonderful time in my life. (I can't stop going back to visit.)

I would highly reccommend Elvaton Christian Academy to any parent who desires a safe, Christian oriented, and academically 'top of the line'' school for their child or grandchild. 8 of my 10 grandchildren have attended ECA and they have all excelled as they have graduated to other schools. The small class size and loving teachers make a tremendous impact on every students'' life!

We are very pleased with the school, curriculum, the entire staff, and the loving care that my children receive at ECA. My children have been attending ECA for 8 years and I couldn't be more pleased with the "people" they have become through the help of the loving, safe, and Christian environment that my kids are in every day.

November, 2013 - My family has been at the school for 9 years! We love the faculty and staff, the children and the families who attend the school! I have been teaching at the school for the last few years, and there is no place that I would rather be! My three children are getting the academics, the spiritual lessons, and making good friendships to prepare them for a bright future. We offer Music, Art, and P.E. to grades K - 8th. Please come and join us! We can't wait to meet you! :)

Elvaton has been a wonderful experience for my three children. They are excited to go to school and I love the personal attention they receive. It is a comfort to know they are in a physically, emotionally, and developmentally safe environment that fosters learning.

We have been a part of the Elvaton family for three years now. It is a wonderful place to work! It is a wonderful place to see kids at work! My days are so easy at Elvaton. The classes are fun and the kids are eager to learn. We love being together as a school and I love the blessing of being one of the teachers! Come and join us!

Our three children have been a part of ECA for the last 4 years. It was a wonderful transition from homeschooling for them. The class sizes are small. The teachers are caring and go the extra mile for their students. My kids love their school and have developed fantastic friendships. They also have developed a great sense of confidence. I highly recommend ECA!

I have been involved with Elvaton Christian Academy for 26 years. My daughter went to the WEE program in 1987 and now her daughter is in our school. I love the at home atmosphere. The curriculum is very structured but fun. The godly ministry through the teachers and staff is the best. The school is a safe haven for all children.

We love Elvaton! This is our first year and both my boys have been doing so great. They love their teachers and the staff. Everyone is very friendly and helpful and its a great family setting.

I have been involved with Elvaton Christian Academy for a couple of years now. We have our two oldest children who attend and it has been a fantastic experience. The teachers and staff are very accommodating and most important to me, very open with communication. Although a religious affiliation, they mix a great blend of fun activities and school with Christianity. It is not a prayer study from start to finish by any means. Obviously no problem with that, but not really what we were looking for. I have my 3rd child ready to attend next year and is already involved when we pick up and drop off the others. Warm, friendly organized environment that I highly recommend to others.

I am a grandparent. 8 of our 10 grandchildren have attended Elvaton Christian Academy and/or Preschool over the past 17 years. Each have excelled academically and spiritually. Five now attend public school and are all honor students due to the strong foundation and love of learning they received at ECA. I would highly recommend this school!
