The gospel for education— the gospel for life.
Evangelical Christian Academy exists to partner with parents and their church to educate, equip, and empower students to pursue their purpose in Christ.
Partnering with parents and their churches for 50 years.
Evangelical Christian Academy is the only accredited K-12 Classical Christian school in Colorado Springs. We offer a unique learning environment based on God’s holy word, teaching students to think well, serve with love, and seek God’s will for their lives.
Equipping Students with Christian Character
At ECA, we believe that developing the hearts and minds of students to be life long learners with Biblical foundations is paramount. Through our Classical Christian curriculum students are achieving high academic success as well as cultivating a personal relationship with our Savior and Lord. High School students even have the opportunity to earn college credits through our Dual Enrollment partnership with Colorado Christian University.
Our Pre-Kindergarten program provides a fantastic place in which children learn the love of Christ, practice important social skills, and develop a love for learning. 2-day, 3-day, and 5-day programs are available.
Kindergarten – 5th grade Grammar school builds the foundations of Classical Christian learning. Students focus daily on the word of God in all subjects. Classroom structures support students as they learn to love the Lord, be a great friend, serve others, and follow Jesus all in an academic structure that highlights the natural development of children as learners.
Logic level instruction for 6th to 8th grade focusing on the natural development of middle school students to see the world through a critical lens. Structured classroom discussion, in depth research, introduction to debate and logic, and exploring Biblical foundations in history as well as literature solidify the fundamentals and principals of students being equipped to pursue their purpose in Christ.
9th – 12th grade students participate in a wide variety of courses designed to emphasis the Rhetoric level of learning. Biblical worldviews are foundational to all courses including history, literature, science, and math. Students are preparing to be persuasive in their faith as they step into the world beyond ECA. Dual enrollment through Colorado Christian University offers students an additional option for earning college credit while taking ECA AP and Honors courses.
The Collegium Study Center
Evangelical Christian Academy hosts the Collegium Study Center for Homeschool Families.

I enjoy bringing all the faculty and staff of ECA together once a month for an “All Hands” Meeting (I can’t help but use some Navy lingo). While together, I teach on some topic, then allow time for splitting into small groups to share stories and relate to the topic...
On a recent visit to our Kindergarten, I was impressed with a roomful of happy and well-ordered students. I especially enjoyed a recitation of their many Bible verses. Their list of memory verses for the year includes 26 “alphabet” verses and about 30 more verses or...
The recent campus closures due to the rash of illnesses was a very difficult, albeit necessary, measure. It was hard on our students for its impact on interactions and activities, on our parents for the changing of schedules, on our teachers for adjusting all their...
