Epworth Christian School was conceived in the hearts of the congregation at Epworth Fellowship Church in 1979.
After 32 years, ECS esteems itself in providing excellence in education to the children and families of this community.
We are proud to have quality staff who consider ministry to children to be as important as academics.
At ECS, we are committed to partnering with parents to continue to offer the best PreK-8 program on the Eastern Shore.
Epworth Christian School (ECS) – the Christian Home Extended - reinforces the faith and values of Christian parents.
We believe that: (1) policies and procedures governing the school should be consistent with the standards of the Bible, which is God’s inspired Word; (2) each child is unique, created in God’s image to live a life of faith and service; (3) faith in Christ must be applied to all areas of life; and (4) that God’s Word has the answers to individual and world problems.
As an educational institution, our objective is for each child to ultimately develop a Christ-centered worldview and a strong Christian belief system.
It is our goal to partner with and encourage parents in their efforts to teach, shape, equip, encourage and love their children.
Our vision is that a strong faith in our God and biblical values will be foundational within each child, and will anchor and navigate them through each state of their development here at ECS and through all arenas of life.
As educators, we have been given the privilege of impacting the spiritual and academic development of the children placed in our classrooms.
It is the goal of the ECS faculty, staff and School Board to be good stewards of the potential of each child placed in our care and encourage them towards excellence.
