Excel Christian Academy is a small, private Christian school whose goal is to provide an excellent college-prep education in a Christ-centered atmosphere. ECA is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI), which is an accreditation division of AdvancED, the largest and most accepted accrediting agency in the United States. In 1993, Excel began as a Kindergarten-6th grade school with only 61 students. Proudly, ECA recognized its first senior graduating class in the year 2000, and we are proud to say that 100% of our last senior class was accepted to college; it is our goal that this is the case every year. Our curriculum is such that each student will have learned the skills necessary to have their choice of colleges upon graduation. One of our goals for improvement is to grow our student population so that we are able to increase the number of programs offered to our students as they express their interests for sports, arts, recreational, and academic programs.
Excel is an independent community Christian school led by a private board and will continue to have the mission to provide an excellent education in a Christ-centered atmosphere. Students and staff represent a variety of church affiliations, with memberships at over 50 different churches.
The school’s spiritual purpose is to encourage a deep relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ; we believe that every child is a unique creation of God and spiritual opportunities are provided throughout the school program. Daily morning devotions, daily Bible classes, and weekly chapel services are an integral part of each child’s learning experience.
