About This School
Our educational philosophy is derived from the Bible. From Scripture we obtain knowledge about children, those essentials needed to nurture a student to become all he can be. From Scripture we obtain direction, discernment, and the insight into instruction with God's perspective.
The education program at Elvaton Christian Academy is committed to academic excellence and is designed to promote the development of knowledge, wisdom, and critical thinking, which are the skills required of Christian leaders in academic pursuits and all of life. Strong academic teaching with a Biblical worldview provides students with the competency and inner strength necessary for success as well-prepared disciples of Christ.

Elvaton Christian Academy recognizes the importance of all facets of language arts. Our classroom instruction is a blend of strong skill orientation and language experience and provides leadership for enrichment activities in reading and writing. Development of individual talents is furthered through attention to cultural arts. Two music and drama productions each year; music times during morning assembly and chapel, performing arts, and recorders. Students’ artistic abilities are encouraged through art classes.
Elvaton Christian Academy views parent involvement as a crucial part of the educational process. Positive relationships between home and school develop a team approach to educating children, which is healthy and fruitful. In partnership, parents and school counsel, guide, and motivate students to grow. It is imperative that parents be respectful of the staff and to refrain from speaking despairingly of staff. Your respectful attitude towards your child’s teacher will make a world of difference in their attitude in class. Parents are expected to be active participants in the education of their children. God has given them the responsibility for this important function.
