ECS strives to provide a learning experience where students are encouraged to explore and equipped to learn while developing critical thinking skills. Our curriculum is aligned with, and exceeds, the Indiana Academic Standards with an integrated Biblical worldview. Through differentiated instruction, teachers help students achieve academic growth based on different skill levels and speed of progress.
Our program is an exciting, hands-on adventure in learning in a dynamic and bright environment. Our phonics-based reading program is a cornerstone of our success. Students learn to build words by combining sounds and become confident readers. Our desire is to encourage a life-long love of learning in the areas of Language Arts (reading, writing, and spelling), Math, Science, Social Studies, Art, Music, and Technology. The small and nurturing classroom environment inspires students to reach their potential, fosters positive relationships with peers and teachers, and reinforces the values taught at home.
Kindergarten students at ECS perform above the national average for reading and math with NWEA growth assessments, which are administered three times during the school year.
Kindergarten classes are offered at our Elementary Campus, and classes typically have a maximum of 22 students with a licensed teacher and a full-time assistant. All of our campuses are highly secure, and parents often speak of how safe they feel sending their children to ECS. In addition to physical safety, we are committed to ensuring every child feels socially and emotionally safe at school as well. Before and after school care is also available from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Children must be 5 years old by August 1 to enroll.
The Indiana School Choice programs (vouchers and SGO grants) help make ECS accessible for more families to partner with a school that meets their needs and supports their values. For information, visit our Affordability page.
