We assist Christian parents in the church and community in carrying out their responsibility to educate, nurture, and equip covenant children so that they become responsible disciples of Christ. Students are challenged to think deeply and develop a distinctly Christian world and life view. Since we desire all students to reach their God-given potential in order to serve in Christ's kingdom, we emphasize both godly character and excellence in academics.
ECCS is a member of the Child Light School Association, and Grades 4-8 are accredited by the Georgia Accrediting Commission. We serve approximately 130 children from kindergarten through eighth grade.
Our Parents: Involved
Parental involvement allows children to see a range of Christian parenting modeled before them. Parents become well acquainted with all students, widening the opportunity for relationships to develop and grow.
Our Teachers: Committed
We believe that the teacher represents parental authority at school and should direct the students to submit to the truth and love of Christ. The teacher is a role model and should demonstrate the lordship of Christ in every area of life. Teachers must genuinely love children and seek to continually grow in the ability to teach creatively.
Our teachers have been certified by the state of Georgia, and many hold master's degrees. We have small classes, with 8-12 students in the lower grades and usually no more than 16 in the upper grades. We follow many of the practices of Charlotte Mason, founder of the PNEU school in England in the 1900's. Her methods included composer, art, and nature studies, narration, and the reading of "Living Books."
Our Students: Nurture
We give praise to God that our students on the whole consistently score well above national averages in standardized testing. We believe that much of our academic excellence is a result of the close relationship between the school and families as they work together to nurture the development of the child's godly character.
We believe that God gives different gifts and even the same gifts in different measure. Since every child is different, individual attention should be given to each student based on spirituality, maturity and intellectual capacity. Every effort is made to work with children who have academic challenges in order to help them reach their God-given potential.
