Excel Christian Academy is an interdenominational Christian school, which embraces historic evangelical Christianity as revealed in the Scriptures. We seek to provide a comprehensive preschool and elementary school education through a rigorous academic program within the context of a Christ-centered world view. Central to the learning process is the integration of both faith and academics which, ultimately, leads to the development of a Christian mind.
The basis of our educational philosophy is grounded in certain academic assumptions. We believe that our students should learn the material presented in the curriculum for his/her grade level. Each student should gain a thorough comprehension and command of the fundamental core classes as well as processes used in communicating and dealing with others, such as reading, writing, speaking, listening, and mathematics. Further, we seek to develop within each child independent and critical thought, a positive self-image, self-discipline, an awareness of the culture in which we live, expertise in educational technology, and an appreciation of aesthetic values.
ECA’s educational philosophy is also rooted in particular theological assumptions. We believe that God is self-existent and seeks a personal relationship with all people. We maintain that He is the Creator and sustainer of the universe. Further, we assert that God has made Himself known to humanity through His creation, through the written revelation of the Scriptures, and through the historical person of His Son, Jesus Christ. With respect to our view of man, we believe that man was created in God’s image. However, through willful rebellion against God’s standards of righteousness, man fell, and became alienated from God. Through the sacrificial and atoning death of Christ Jesus, God provided the means of reconciliation and restoration. We believe that the basis for right living and ethics is found in God himself and is revealed to man in Scripture. Therefore, we maintain that Scripture is essential in teaching and guiding young minds to make wise choices in daily living.
At ECA we strive for an educational program which supports our students in reaching his/her full academic and individual potential. Ultimately, as students grow in their academic understanding and application of God’s truth in their lives, they will fulfill God’s highest purposes for man: knowing Him and living rightly in their family, church, community, and world. The Center currently houses Pre K2- Pre K5 in addition to an after school program for grades K-8th.
