Our Practices

Focus on Prayer:  Prayer is vitally important to under-gird the oneness we have in Christ as an ECCS family. Parents meet regularly with the teachers and other parents in their child's class for the purpose of praying for the teachers, students and school.

Curriculum:  ECCS does not use one set curriculum. Teaching materials are selected from a variety of resources. We believe that all truth is God's truth, and God has inerrantly and infallibly revealed His truth in the Bible. The ultimate goal of ECCS is to teach students to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever. We believe that the study of history, science and math, as well as all other areas of knowledge is to be pursued from a perspective that gives reverence to the Creator. We follow many of the practices of Charlotte Mason, founder of the Parents National Education Union school in England in the 1900s, whose ideas included composer, art, and nature studies, narration, and the reading of "Living Books." More information about Miss Mason's philosophies can be found in the book, For the Children's Sake by Susan Schaeffer Macaulay. Other recommended reading:  Shepherding a Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp.

Academic Excellence: We give praise to God that our students, on the whole, consistently score well above national averages in standardized testing. Every effort is made to work with children that have academic challenges in order to help them reach their God-given potential. 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.
