"Eagle's Landing Christian Academy has raised the standards by which all other Christian schools should be measured with regard to students with learning challenges such as dyslexia."

-Robert Langston

Author, Motivational Speaker and Consultant CEO, The Dyslexia Educational Network, Inc.

The MERIT Program (Multi-faceted Educational Resources and Instructional Technology) provides assistance to our students who learn differently.   

The MERIT Program will assist identified students in becoming active and competent learners in the classroom. Please note that these are not tutorial services. Students may or may not need to receive additional tutorial assistance outside of the MERIT Program to help them with the classroom curricula. Students will not receive specialized instruction and are expected to function within the demands of ELCA’s curriculum on their grade level. 

Students receiving services will be billed the appropriate fees. If there is not a copy of a current evaluation in the student’s file, please provide us with this information. Services will not be provided until all records and evaluations are reviewed and Student Support Services determines the student’s eligibility for the program. 

We look forward to ministering to your child and assisting them in experiencing success in the classroom. Please be assured that assisting and equipping our students for success in the classroom and in the world for Christ continues to be our primary desire. Thank you for entrusting your child to us and for your continued commitment to their academic and spiritual growth.
