  • With the Bible as its foundation, Evansville Christian School exists to provide an exemplary learning environment to educate and equip students with a Biblical worldview who confidently engage the culture and impact the world for Christ. With 800+ students in Preschool (age 3) - 10th grade, ECS is a multi-campus school system with five campuses throughout the tri-state area. Four campues are in partnership with churches and we have opened our first, freestanding campus for high school as we add a grade each year. Our vision is to honor and glorify God by working with parents and pastors to inspire students to reach their Godgiven potential..

Our ISTEP scores consistently rank among the top 5% of all schools in the State. ECS is an "A" rated, Four-Star, "high achievement/high growth" school per the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE). Woven into the fabric of our curriculum is a solid focus on helping children develop the skills, knowledge, and values that will enable them to excel in life. In addition to traditional courses, our curriculum includes Bible, phonics-based reading, Accelerated Reading, inquiry-based science, STEM, technology, music, band, art, media center/library, P.E., and Spanish. We also offer numerous extra-curricular clubs, activities, and athletics. Through our relationships with parents, pastors, and the community, ECS serves as a unifying ministry. More than 100 churches are represented in our student body and many students do not have church home (ECS has an open enrollment policy). We have a staff of 100 employees, including 60+ teachers (all licensed by the State and ACSI).  ECS was founded in 1975 and incorporated in 1990 as a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation. Our annual budget is approximately $6 million.  ECS is a participant in the State of Indiana's school choice & voucher programs.

We are very happy with our school. I know my kids wouldn't be where they are if it wasn't for ECS!

We have a first and fourth grader at ECS. We love ECS. The teachers and staff do a great job teaming with the parents to ensure each child gets the best education possible. Academics at ECS are so strong. I appreciate the fact that at ECS, our children are taught thoroughly at school. As a parent we are only asked to spend time with our children at home reinforcing what has already been taught in the classroom. The extensiveness of the curriculum is so impressive. The children get all the fundamentals, do well on testing, but learn many extras as well such as Spanish, music, art, and physical education. ECS supplies a well rounded education. The biblical approach is such a blessing. Our children have developed a true depth in their Biblical knowledge and worldview. I see them draw on that knowledge as they process situations that come up in their lives. Christian character is being learned each time they step foot on the campus through the staff, teachers and their peers. ECS is filling our children with the academics, Christian character, and confidence we believe they will draw on throughout their lives. We love ECS.
