This brings ELCA’s nine-year scholarship total to over $100 million.

The College Placement and Guidance Office at ELCA strives to provide parents and students information on college resources and to help students stay organized in the college planning process.  We embrace the philosophy that a team approach is essential to reach a successful end. Here you will find resources for testing, college planning and admissions, and financial aid. 


Parents can be active participants in the college exploration and application process.  You should visit campuses with your child and participate in programs offered by admission offices.  Other ways to be involved are: making certain your child has been thorough in his/her search; reviewing the admission and financial aid applications and offering guidance in their completion; making certain that tasks get completed and forms are submitted on time; being the support and counselor when decisions are made.



  • Meet with students and parents to identify colleges of interest that complement the student’s academic, extracurricular, and spiritual desires. 

  • Write supportive letters of recommendation, where applicable, for student’s admission and scholarship applications. 

  • Review students' application and essay materials as requested.

PSAT (Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test)

The PSAT is given in October to all students in grades 9 - 11. The test is used for practice for the SAT and Honors/AP level placement in the High School.  ELCA registers all students for the test. PSAT score reports are normally returned after Christmas break. Going over the test – question by question – is a valuable way to improve SAT scores. Students who have questions about their score report should talk with the Academic Dean or Director of College Placement and Guidance. 


SAT (Scholastic Assessment Test) and ACT (American College Test)

Eagle's Landing Christian Academy school code for both the SAT and the ACT is 112046. 


SAT Reasoning Test

Beginning with the winter/spring of the junior year, all students are strongly encouraged to take the SAT Reasoning test  if their PSAT results indicate this is their best test. Dates for the test and registration information can be found on-line or in the College Placement and Guidance Office.   



We encourage students to take the ACT if their ACT- Aspire results indicate this is their best test. The ACT is an achievement test measuring English, math, reading, and science skills. Some students naturally respond better to the nature of the questions on the ACT with more ease.  Dates for tests and registration information can be found on-line or in the Director of College Placement and Guidance Office.    


AP Exams

Students enrolled in Advanced Placement classes are required to sit for the final exam written by the college board.  These tests begin the second week of May. The tests are scored on a scale of 1-5 with many colleges offering credit or advanced placement for scores of 3 or higher.  The college board provides score results to students in July at
