Third Grade

Welcome to the third grade! We strive to provide an excellence in education that stands the test of time and to establish an academic, ethical and spiritual foundation for life. We use Biblical behavioral guidelines in our classroom by showing respect toward God, others and ourselves, by being kind and compassionate to all our classmates, forgiving them, just as Christ forgave all of us, and by cheerfully following the directions of those in authority. In addition to daily studies, students participate in a variety of classroom projects, fieldtrips, contests and activities sponsored by our SGA and the community. As part of our music program, students participate in a Christmas Concert and a Spring Sing.

Welcome to the fourth grade at ECA. The fourth grade is a transition year in which students learn responsibility and independence as they begin their journey into the upper elementary grades. This is a year in which students grow in confidence and gain many skills that prepare them for higher level learning and thinking in a challenging environment. They also learn Godly wisdom and character throughout. A heavy emphasis is placed on learning new vocabulary in all subjects.

Sixth Grade

The sixth grade is a year full of important emotional, social, and academic transitions. The sixth grade brings an increased sense of responsibility, leadership, and expectations. ECA’s sixth grade curriculum is designed to capture students' interest and encourage them to think and become more Christ-like as they enter their pre-teen years. The focus is on personal Bible study and the understanding of principles that guide all of life's decisions. All curriculum and supplemental materials are used to meet our SAT-10 objectives in each subject. The curriculum is fun, but challenging; students receive a solid foundation of Biblical content with strong application in their personal lives.

Physical Education / Athletic Department

Elementary students at ECA attend PE on a daily basis. To increase their motor skills students work on basic movement activities and some sports specific skills. Every Wednesday, they walk/jog laps around the football field for cardiovascular fitness and have free play every Friday, choosing between basketball, jump ropes, hula hoops, or the children come up with games of their own. Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday we have a different set of activities that vary from week to week. Activities such as:

Movement Exercises

Jump Rope Skills (Long and Short)

Media Centers (Library / Computer)

Evangel Christian Academy’s Media Centers offer the students the latest in technology. Our library has over 7000 books and 5 laptops used for research and Accelerated Reading.

ECA has designated elementary and high school computer labs. Our computer labs have 49 computers currently being used by students for Accelerated reader quizzes, research, yearbook, and class instruction. All students are required to have an AVL card for use in their research.

In the Library, students in Grades K – 6 have ½ hour per class per week for instruction. Students learn how to check out books, find books, and what the Dewey Decimal System is and how to use it. Children in K5 are read to and have activities to reinforce what they have read. Our Librarian and elementary teachers coordinate school work so that students may do research and have extra instructional time in that area of study during their library time. The library extends the curriculum by reviewing spelling, vocabulary, history and science topics through games and activities. Each year elementary grades publish a class book which includes stories and illustrations centered on a chosen topic. This process involves research, writing, editing, typing, and the ability to use creativity and imagination for the illustrations.

In the computer lab, students in Grades K – 6 have ½ hour per class per week for class instruction, research projects, AR quizzes, and internet usage. All computers in the lab have access to the Library OPAC system allowing them to research books they may need. They are also taught the proper usage of the internet and the affects the Internet has on our lives today. Additional computer lab time is scheduled as needed to complete various projects.

Students in Grades 7 – 12 have access to the Library and Computer Lab every day for research projects, internet usage, and class instruction. Currently we have one yearbook class and one graphic design class where students put their creative minds to work in creating their own yearbook. They are also responsible for helping teachers throughout the school with various projects that require computer usage. Students in the yearbook, graphic design, and Applications courses are also exposed to many new and innovative programs that allow their expertise to grow in the area of graphics, video, and desktop publishing. Adobe Design Standards, Photo Shop, InDesign, and Illustrator are some of the programs used to accomplish this goal.

Elementary Enrichment Classes

Music

The ECA Music Department consists of both elementary choirs and a high school chorus. All elementary students in grades K-6 have music class. Elementary grades form their own choirs as well as being combined for various occasions. These groups perform at various venues including the Alabama National Fair, Holiday Market, nursing homes, chapel services, and others. The choir finished two major performances this year. The first was a Veteran’s Day service. Each choir performed a number as part of this chapel. The second was our large Christmas Concert. One of the exciting parts of this concert is the mass choir that opens and closes the show. This choir incorporates the entire music department.
In the spring, the high school chorus will begin working on a competition routine to be performed at various competitions. Also, in the spring, all choirs perform at our annual, show-stopping Spring Fling. This is the time where they showcase many of the things they have learned in class throughout the year.

Character Education

ECA is not only concerned with teaching academic curriculum, but helping our students become responsible, caring citizens, letting their lights shine for Jesus. Some examples of character traits highlighted are obedience, citizenship, compassion, fairness, honesty, integrity, perseverance, responsibility, respect, self-discipline, and trustworthiness. Each trait is introduced through the use of scripture, stories, discussion, videos, and age-appropriate activities and word puzzles.

Art

Art is offered weekly to elementary students. The classes are arranged by presenting the students with individual Art elements and creating pieces that highlight that particular element. Through this approach, the students gain experience with various artistic processes and media. Art class also allows students to enjoy creating specific projects that celebrate the various holidays throughout the year. The artistic processes as well as the products are enjoyed during this enrichment class.

Spanish

The elementary Spanish class is made successful by emerging into Spanish. The class is divided into three lessons: (1) Calendars – consisting of dates, months, days, weather, seasons, colors, and numbers. (2) Main lesson of the day and (3) Wrapping up with extra vocabulary. The students have a lot of fun in Spanish class. They play games, interact with puppets, play music, and enjoy other fun props to enrich the Spanish Environment. The class opens daily with prayer to encourage spiritual growth.

Junior / Senior High School

The junior high section includes grades seven through 9 and focuses on the transition from elementary to secondary school as well as from childhood to young adulthood. Our junior high students are taught to develop practical methods of study, organizational skills, acceptance of personal responsibilities, and greater spiritual growth.

The school year is divided into four nine-week grading periods, comprised of two semesters. The students attend seven periods of classroom instruction each day.

Beginning in the ninth grade, instruction focuses on preparing our students academically, personally, and spiritually for college. The Guidance Department personnel assist each student in selecting the academic schedule most appropriate to his or her needs, abilities, and long term goals. Along with the core courses of English, Social Studies, and the higher Mathematics and Sciences, students are offered a variety of electives: Spanish, Choral Music, Computer Science, Health, Family Living, Drama, Journalism, and Visual Arts.

The school offers several opportunities for leadership. Students may audition for the praise band or be elected to serve in the Student Government Association. At the end of the seventh grade students who have maintained a 3.5 grade point average in their courses may be elected by the faculty into the Junior Honor Society.

We also offer a well-organized social program. Group activities, such as homecoming competitions, academic competitions, and field trips promote school spirit, self-confidence, and build social skills.

Drama

The high school drama class of Evangel Christian Academy is dedicated to the pursuit of dramatic excellence in the areas of drama ministry and classical theater production and performance. With this as our goal, we begin our year by focusing on different dramatic mediums to present evangelical messages to our students and staff during chapel services. This focus on “ministry first” is a reflection of our desire to offer up the first fruits of our gifts and talents to the Lord. Students are trained and encouraged to honor God first with their gifts and talents and to use those gifts to encourage others in their walk with Christ.
We are also committed to encourage our younger students to learn and to present their best to God. As a part of this commitment, we will be performing some educational and seasonal pieces for some of the elementary classes, chapels, and a combined Christmas performance. During the second half of the school year, focus is given to the spring drama and/or musical presentation. Students from the entire student body are allowed to audition to be in the cast. Once the necessary roles have been filled, students commit to after school rehearsals and scenery construction. In addition to the cast, a group of students are chosen to be on the production crew, which fulfills the obligations of sound and lighting technicians, stagehands, and makeup and costume assistants.

Art

Art classes are an introduction to the elements and principles of art. Projects may also focus on a particular artist after studying his or her work or technique. The students have an opportunity to use a variety of media while mastering different skills. Art has many benefits for our students. They learn to use physical, mental, and emotional capabilities together in one project. They gain experience in decision-making, selecting, and arranging; thus encouraging orderly thought processes and orderly work. It also provides a way for students to express their thoughts and feelings in a productive, visual manner.

Music (Praise Team)

The ECA Music Department consists of both elementary choirs and a high school chorus. All elementary students in grades K-6 have music class. Elementary grades form their own choirs as well as being combined for various occasions. These groups perform at various venues including the Alabama National Fair, Holiday Market, nursing homes, chapel services, and others. The choir finished two major performances this year. The first was a Veteran’s Day service. Each choir performed a number as part of this chapel. The second was our large Christmas Concert. One of the exciting parts of this concert is the mass choir that opens and closes the show. This choir incorporates the entire music department.
In the spring, the high school chorus will begin working on a competition routine to be performed at various competitions. Also, in the spring, all choirs perform at our annual, show-stopping Spring Fling. This is the time where they showcase many of the things they have learned in class throughout the year.

The Praise Team is made up of selected students from grades 9-12. Students are chosen based on their leadership skills and teacher recommendations. Although, a teacher is assigned to the team, they are student led. The team leads the student body in praise and worship during high school Chapel services.
