With the Bible as its foundation, Evansville Christian School exists to provide an exemplary, Christ-centered education and equip students to impact the world for Christ. With 600+ students in PK-8th grade, ECS is a multi-campus school system with four campuses throughout the tri-state area, plus soccer fields and two summer camps, all in partnership with area churches. Our vision is to honor and glorify God by working with parents and pastors to inspire students to reach their God–given potential. ECS features challenging academics, licensed teachers, small classes, extensive technology, and involved parents. ECS is fully accredited by the State of Indiana, the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), and AdvancED (formerly the North Central Association). Our ISTEP scores consistently rank among the top 5% of all schools in the State. ECS is “A”/Exemplary-rated and considered a “high achievement/high growth” school by the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE).Woven into the fabric of our curriculum is a solid focus on helping children develop the skills, knowledge, and values that will enable them to excel in life. In addition to traditional courses, our curriculum includes Bible, phonics-based reading, Accelerated Reading, inquiry-based science, STEM, technology, music, band, art, media center/library, P.E., and Spanish. We also offer numerous extra-curricular clubs, activities, and athletics.Through our relationships with parents, pastors, and the community, ECS serves as a unifying ministry. More than 75 churches are represented in our student body and many students do not have church home (ECS has an open enrollment policy). We have a staff of 70 employees, including 50 teachers. All teachers are licensed by the State and ACSI; and all are considered “highly qualified” by IDOE. ECS was founded in 1975 and incorporated in 1990 as a nonprofit, tax-exempt corporation. Our annual budget is approximately $4 million.
