THE HISTORY OF
Eagle’s Landing Christian Academy has its roots in the founding of McDonough Christian Academy in 1970. In 1994, the Academy became a ministry of Eagle’s Landing First Baptist Church. In the years between 1970 and 1994, the Academy operated as Meadow Creek Academy and Greater Atlanta Christian School -- Meadow Creek Campus.
Since 1994, the academy has experienced its strongest growth. ELCA opened its doors in 1994 with 170 students and grew to 593 students by 1999. During this season of growth, both the church and school decided to sell their existing properties and relocate on the current 150-acre campus.
