I am thrilled to be the head of school at Eagle's Landing Christian Academy. I am excited to see how God will continue to work among our students, parents, faculty, and staff during the 2024-25 school year. It was evident when I first visited ELCA that God has truly blessed our church and school community! Here at ELCA we truly desire to follow our mission statement which reads:  Eagle’s Landing Christian Academy is a gospel-centered, Kingdom focused, college preparatory school that exists to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the glory of God.

We try to live out this mission by making several commitments to our families and students:

We are committed to a gospel-centered school. The word gospel means “good news”. Our students at ELCA will come to realize that God, the Father, sent his only Son, Jesus, to live a perfect life, and to die for all of mankind’s sins. But Jesus did not remain dead; He resurrected from the dead and desires for all people everywhere to come to know this truth and to put their faith and trust in Jesus as Lord and Savior. The hope we have in Jesus’ resurrection is truly good news. 

We are committed to being Kingdom focused. Scripture teaches us that this world that we live in is not our home yet. God has placed us here to live in this world, but to not be of this world.  We view the Bible as God’s Holy Word. In every aspect of school life, it is our sincere desire to point students to Christ. We offer Bible classes, worship opportunities in age-appropriate chapel services, but also teach each subject through the lens of Scripture. It is our aim to lead students to Christ, build them up in Christ, and equip them to serve Christ, which we call, Kingdom Education. 

We are committed to being a college preparatory school. By offering multiple AP and dual-enrollment classes, we provide our students with academic excellence and a quality education. The majority of our graduates will be attending 4-year colleges and universities. We have excellent, certified, Christian teachers that lead our students each and every day. Our most recent 79 graduates, the Class of 2024, were awarded close to $22 million in college scholarships. Recent graduates attend colleges and universities in various places including Georgia Tech, UGA, West Point, Duke, Truett-McConnell, Shorter University, and Kennesaw State, just to name a few.

Lastly, we are a ministry of Eagle's Landing First Baptist Church, and both our church and school work hand-in-hand to make disciples for Jesus. Our goal is to use education so that our students become life-long followers of Christ!!

Thank you for visiting our website. We hope that it is helpful in showing you who we are and what we are all about at ELCA.
