Message From Principal
As the principal of Evangel Christian Academy, I feel it is important to keep our school’s mission statement as the primary focus of all that we do. The following is our school’s philosophical statement directing our mission. Please take a few minutes to read over the details of our purpose and be reminded of what Evangel Christian Academy is all about.
Evangel Christian Academy exists to be an extension of the Christian family in training
and developing their Christian student(s) for committed service to our Lord Jesus Christ.
Through quality academic instruction, the impartation of Biblical values and providing
activities designed to foster spiritual, academic and social growth, ECA words to help
each student reach their potential in Christ.
The founders of ECA firmly believed that a quality education that leads to productive, purposeful, and fulfilled lives must be based upon the truths of God, as revealed in Jesus Christ and proclaimed in the Bible. They further held that hard work, pursuit of knowledge, integrity, sacrifice, citizenship, and prayer are qualities that define us and are essential to the development of believers in Christ. We share these convictions, and they remain fundamental to our school’s philosophy of education.
Believing that preparation is important in every endeavor, we equip our students for success by emphasizing Bible, English, mathematics, social sciences, foreign languages, science, computer applications, and fine arts. In addition to a challenging and balanced curriculum, we value the benefits of athletic programs and other extracurricular activities that promote the students’ sense of character, responsibility, fair play, teamwork, and commitment.
We know that young people study, learn, interact, and participate best when in a safe environment. We not only emphasize our children’s physical safety, but we also desire that they be emotionally secure. We believe that our staff, faculty, and coaches should be positive role models and advocates for our children and should be sensitive to the needs of each student. Because we believe that schools and home must work together, we encourage parental involvement. In return, we expect our students to learn respect for authority, to become accountable for their actions, and to clearly exhibit self-discipline.
We desire unity of spirit and purpose at Evangel Christian Academy and believe that encouragement of others is key to achieving that unity. By working together and supporting the ECA mission statement, the success we seek for our young people is certainly attainable. “If He is for us, who can be against us?” May God bless and keep you.
