About Us

"And they shall be my people, and I will be their God.  I will give them one heart and one way, that they may fear me forever, for their own good and the good of their children after them. I will make with them an everlasting covenant, that I will not turn away from doing good to them. And I will put the fear of me in their hearts, that they may not turn from me.  I will rejoice in doing them good, and I will plant them in this land in faithfulness, with all my heart and all my soul."  Jeremiah 32:38-41 (ESV)

We are delighted that you would like to know more about East Cobb Christian School (ECCS). Our teachers and administration create a unique learning environment for our students, and we encourage you to meet our staff.

ECCS operates as a ministry of East Cobb Presbyterian Church (ECPC) to children of Christian parents in the church and community. ECCS is a member of the Child Light Schools Association (formerly Perimeter School Association), which has five campuses around the Atlanta area. We offer classes from kindergarten through eighth grades, serving approximately 125 students.

Applicants should be members in good standing of an evangelical, Protestant church.  Please refer to the statements of faith under "Publications and Resources."  Although we value all children as image bearers of Christ, we are not equipped to serve students with learning or psychological disabilities. 

ECCS is directed by the School Ministry Team, made up of members of ECPC who also have children who attend ECCS, and a school administrator. As a ministry of the church, ECCS is under the oversight of the officers of the church.

We believe that God has given parents the primary responsibility for educating their children, and thus the school is to function as an extension of the home. East Cobb Chritian School strives to teach to the "whole child," utilizing the Charlotte Mason methodology that is centered around the idea that education is three-pronged: Education is an Atmosphere, a Discipline, a Life.

By "Atmosphere," Charlotte meant the surroundings in which the child grows up. A child absorbs a lot from his home environment. Charlotte believed that atmosphere makes up one-third of a child’s education.

By "Discipline," Charlotte meant the discipline of good habits — and specifically habits of character. Cultivating good habits in your child’s life makes up another third of his education.

The other third of education, "Life," applies to academics. Charlotte believed that we should give children living thoughts and ideas, not just dry facts. So all of her methods for teaching the various school subjects are built around that concept.
