Bob DeRuiter Secondary Principal

Dear Prospective Parent and Student,

Thank you for requesting information about Evangelical Christian Academy (ECA). Our school’s purpose is to assist parents in providing a Christ-centered education of high academic quality so that the pupils may be prepared to take an active, vital place in the home, the church, the state, and in their future vocations by applying Christian principles in a Biblical manner that is glorifying to God.

Our campus includes 7th through 12th grades, and our school day is 8:00 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.

Our curriculum, procedures, programs, and facilities undergo an ongoing, intensive evaluation in order to maintain the highest standards possible. During the summer, the office is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Please call our Admissions Director, Michelle Poli at 719-243-9858 to schedule a tour.

Evangelical Christian Academy is committed to working in unison with the home and church to nurture each student spiritually, socially, and academically.

I pray that God will give you wisdom in this important decision that you will be making-the education of your child.

In Christ,
Bob DeRuiter
