Philosophy & Approach

General School Mission

"Purpose. ECS exists to provide continuity between the Christian home and church in the educational process of child development towards God's objec-tive for Christian young people. Our purpose is to develop students into the image of Christ (Ephesians 4:22-24) in order to prepare and equip them for a lifetime of service to the Lord in whatever vocation God di-rects their lives (Matthew 28:20; 2 Timothy 3:17).
Goals. ECS endeavors to accomplish its purpose by continually nurturing the young person's spirit, mind and body after the pattern of Christ's develop-ment given to us in Luke 2:52. Thus, our primary goal is to develop the whole child by promoting his:
• spiritual and moral growth (favor with God);
• intellectual and academic progress (wisdom);
• physical development (stature); and
• social development (favor with man).
Experience has shown that in most cases, post-secondary instruction will be desirable for the majority of our students. Our secondary goal is to prepare them for further education at a Christian college, university or voca-tional school.
