School Notes

  • Excel Christian Academy is a small, private Christian school whose goal is to provide an excellent college-prep education in a Christ-centered atmosphere. ECA is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI), which is an accreditation division of AdvancED, the largest and most accepted accrediting agency in the United States.  In 1993, Excel began as a Kindergarten-6th grade school with only 61 students. Proudly, ECA recognized its first senior graduating class in the year 2000, and we are proud to say that 100% of our last senior class was accepted to college; it is our goal that this is the case every year. Our curriculum is such that each student will have learned the skills necessary to have their choice of colleges upon graduation.  One of our goals for improvement is to grow our student population so that we are able to increase the number of programs offered to our students as they express their interests for sports, arts, recreational, and academic programs.Excel is a community school that was built as a ministry of the Cartersville Church of God which later became The Church at Liberty Square.  ECA was founded by the Senior Pastor Dr. Joe E. Edwards.  Plans are underway for Excel to become an independent community Christian school led by a private board and will continue to have the mission to provide an excellent education in a Christ-centered atmosphere. We are very appreciative of the prayerful leadership and financial support provided by the Church at Liberty Square. Students and staff represent a variety of church affiliations, with memberships at over 50 different churches.The school`s spiritual purpose is to encourage a deep relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ; we believe that every child is a unique creation of God and spiritual opportunities are provided throughout the school day. Daily morning devotions, daily Bible classes, and weekly chapel services are an integral part of each child`s learning experience.Cartersville is located 42 miles north of Atlanta on the I-75 growth corridor, near beautiful Lake Allatoona. With a population nearing 20,000, it is the largest city in Bartow County, which has a population just over 100,000. Cartersville is a very progressive city, with rural surroundings, and the site of many major industries.  It has been growing very quickly and has become a prominent place to visit in Georgia and the Southern United States with highlights including the Booth Western Art Museum, the Tellus Science Museum, The Etowah Indian Mounds, and the LakePoint Sports Complex.
