Evans Christian Academy welcomes homeschooled students! ECA allows part-time enrollment so that your students can take one or more classes and receive the benefit and direction of a dedicated teacher. Evans Christian Academy is an excellent way to transition your child from home to the college environment. Classes are on a block schedule (1 1/2 hour) and meet 2 - 3 times per week. Requirements for each course are outlined in its syllabus.
Grading at Evans Christian Academy is issued four times per school year. Final grades are issued and course credits are earned once a semester (twice per school year). For a core class, this means that a half-credit is issued for each successfully completed semester.
Evans Christian Academy offers transcripts for part-time students as well as full-time. Informal transcripts are free. A transcript with the school seal is $10.00 for the first copy and $5.00 for each additional copy. These sealed copies are mailed to the college or university of your choice
Often a college or university requests a letter of recommendation for the student. By being enrolled at Evans Christian Academy, your student has a teacher that can provide the added support that might be needed to obtain a scholarship.
Evans Christian Academy has been blessed with the opportunity to leave a positive impression on the lives of its students. A few parent testimonials are expressed below.
Dear Ms. Freida,
It's Corinna Rezzelle! I have just arrived in Augusta from New York and I wanted to write a little note to you. I have just graduated from NYU, obtaining my Master's in Theatre Education. I know that without the work and commitment that you and all of the staff at ECA did for me all of those years ago that I would not have been able to get as far as I have.I want to thank you for everything that you do. I know my Mom has probably told you, but I have since become a teacher myself and the work that you all did when I was at ECA shapes how I teach in the classroom today!You are the best! I hope that you're having a wonderful summer and that you have a fantastic school year. My mom and I talk about you and the school often. We just love you all!Have a wonderful day,
If you are looking for a school that offers excellent and caring teachers, challenging classes, and a place to grow as a person, Evans Christian Academy is a safe bet for both the student and parents. My husband and I were looking for a school to transition our son into from a home school environment. This particular school was filled with teachers who were willing to help make his transition as smooth as possible. They offered AP classes, Honor's classes, and College Prep work that would meet the needs of each student arriving at their doors. My son Colton was introduced to the director, Mrs. Lachman in early 2012. She was and is an extremely dedicated advocate for each child. Colton entered ECA with an A average, and the teachers only made him work harder to become more polished. Colton thrived at ECA; he became a very active student who excelled in each class. The student to teacher ratio made sure that Colton was never overlooked. The teachers were always encouraging him to continue to pursue excellence. They prepared him for college with rigorous classes and lots of encouragement. He graduated in 2014 and is now attending Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville, Georgia. He is an Honor and Dean's List student and has been awarded numerous scholarships and awards. In April 2016, he was awarded the Tony Tan Computer Science scholarship. ECA will always have a special place in our hearts. Thank you to all the wonderful staff and teachers.
When I first came to ECA in 2005, I was just looking for a place to get me out of the awful environment of public school. My first year at ECA was a hectic one. I had a lot going on in my life and went through a period of deep depression, and as a result I missed at least two months of school that year. Because of the supportive, comforting, and accommodating staff at ECA, I was able to pass. With all my teachers praying for me, letting me make up my work, understanding my situation, and even offering to tutor me at home, I was able to come back to school and prosper. Over my years at ECA, I have come to know the staff and students as my second family. With my Junior year coming up, my 5th year at ECA, I know there is no better school for me. I will always support them in what they aim to do because I want to see other lives changed by their love and kindness. There is no other place I'd rather graduate from. :) ECA has truly changed my life for the better.
If you desire a Christian environment that encourages your child to develop his talents, while teaching him tools to overcome weak modalities, and enriches him with culture then Evans Christian Academy should be your choice. Our family has been associated with ECA since our son was in 9th grade and he is now a graduating senior. Small student to teacher ratio allows an intimacy between faculty/staff, student, and parents not possible in larger schools. We truly feel that we have become a family with a common goal; for our son to be a happy well rounded student well prepared for college and a citizen that will make a positive influence within the community. Our son applied to several in and out of state universities and was accepted by all. We feel this was a reflection of the excellent education and preparation he received at ECA.In Christ,
--Mrs. Linda Turner
How can I tell you how grateful I am for all you have done for Meg these last two years? Thank you for being there and providing that safe and flexible avenue for her education. Thank you for believing in her. Thank you for your willingness to work with her, for your diligence, strength, and vision for the special niche in an educational system which doesn't fit every child. Thank you for caring for Meg. Thank you for your ever-present smile and a true love for your work.May God richly bless the work of your hands and heart at ECA- you are its "heartbeat."We will miss you!
I am writing a note of thanks as we pack to take Rachel to Mercer University where she begins a new chapter in her life. As you know she earned a scholastic scholarship based on her academic success at Evans Christian and performance on the SAT. She will also receive the Baptist Heritage Grant. Equally as important as those achievements which enable her to attend Mercer is the growth and maturity she experience in her two years at ECA.Rachel graduated from Episcopal Day School and attended Augusta Prep before she came to ECA. I was in search of a Christian high school because I was not pleased with her performance or behavior at Prep. I know the 9th grade and separation from friends and teachers she had been with for several years played a part in her change in attitude, along with her age and stage of life.As I said at graduation after Rachel spoke, to me ECA stands for "every child achieves." She needed just what you offered - the atmosphere where every child has the opportunity to excel at his or her level with one on one instruction, direction, and encouragement.You probably don't remember that first meeting I had with you before I brought Rachel in for an interview, but I certainly will never forget it. As I told you then, Rachel is my creative child and can create trouble where there isn't any. She is smart, creative and fearless, and until she was tested by Jodi Frye, I would never have believed she had any learning deficiencies. Her ability and the guidance she had received through 8th grade kept her focused... and then high school hit!As I said at graduation, Rachel was never a threat to anyone but herself. Although she began her studies at ECA on a probationary status, that quickly passed. What we found at ECA was an exceptional learning environment where my child could get refocused and yet you offered the freedom to attend classes and come and go, which has been a wonderful transition for college life. Rachel matured and grew in her academic knowledge and love for the Lord through the firm but fair protocols you have in place.I wish you all the best as I know the school is destined for even greater things in the near future. Do not hesitate to call me if I can do anything to help support ECA because you and your staff supported my child in a way I can never forget.
To my friends at ECA,
As a home schooling parent, I started to stress when my first child was entering high school. It was at this time that I began looking for some outside help and visited ECA. I still remember my first conference with Frieda and how relieved I felt when I left the school. Not only did she present me with all the great opportunities that ECA has to offer home schoolers, but she also prayed with me and it was then that I knew I wanted my kids to be a part of this.My oldest son started at the school with Biology and had a teacher who is still today considered his "favorite". The experience was so positive that the next year I started my daughter and the two of them took several classes over the next couple of years. Not only were the academics and teachers exceptional, but Tyler and Jessica were both involved in the service club, inducted into the National Honor Society, and members of FLAIR (a foreign language honor society). Because of their experience at ECA, it was an easy transition to the joint enrolled program at ASU. They both took college classes during their final two years of high school and Tyler is now in his second year at Mercer University where he was awarded the Presidential Scholarship (we are currently in the process of Jessica's college choice). I firmly believe having the accredited classes from your school has helped in their college searches and scholarship offers.ECA was truly my lifeline in providing my children with not only a great education in a loving Christian atmosphere but more importantly wonderful lifetime memories and friends. I truly thank you for the opportunities that you offer which help ease the burdens on home school parents. I am looking forward to my youngest son taking some classes in the near future!With a grateful heart,
