THE KINGDOM ATHLETE

The Kingdom Athlete is

...a child of God daily surrendered to His will and for His service,
...an athlete who seeks to glorify God through his actions,
...an athlete who adopts the “Win the Day” philosophy in all areas of life,
...an athlete who is humble and grateful for his gifts and opportunities,
...an athlete who is submissive to authority,
...an athlete who has a teachable spirit,
...an athlete who leads by serving others,
...an athlete who strives for victory, gives perfect effort and never quits.
...an athlete who understands he represents more than himself.
...an athlete who is not ashamed of the Gospel of Christ and seeks opportunities to share the good news with teammates, parents, officials, opponents and to the multitude of children that will look to them as they model Christ-like leadership.

Welcome to Eagle's Landing Christian Academy, where we have been empowering students to impact the world since 1970. 


The Student Handbook is intended to inform the ELCA community about policies and procedures concerning students. It consolidates information from many sources on a variety of topics. It seeks to assist in the orientation of new students and to provide all students with an up-to-date reference on significant matters relating to ELCA life.  

It is the responsibility of each student/parent to be knowledgeable of the contents of this handbook. For their own benefit, students are urged to familiarize themselves with all relevant portions of the Student Handbook and ask for clarification of any information by contacting the administration of their respective school.

We trust you will find your Student Handbook helpful throughout the year.

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.

 

Students, it is our prayer that your experience at ELCA will not only challenge you to reach academic heights and provide an environment for character development, but most importantly, establish a foundation for growth in your relationship with Jesus Christ that you will build upon all your life.  Our administration, faculty and staff will pray for you daily as you discern God's will for your life.

THE SUPPORT NETWORK

ELCA offers a network of specific staff members to whom students can go if they wish to talk about a mental health issue.  This list is not exhaustive.  Students can go to any person within the school to discuss psychological/emotional/spiritual issues.  Notwithstanding, this network provides adults on campus who are available to assist as needed.  Predominantly, these individuals will connect the student with resources in which the focus is prevention, intervention, positive development, and regular communication between school and families. Most importantly, though, the goal of this network is to glorify God. He is the Wonderful Counselor (Isaiah 9:6), Great Healer (Psalm 103:3), Eternal Helper (John 14:16) Restorer of the Broken-hearted (Psalm 147:3) and Keeper of Perfect Peace (Isaiah 26:3).  Our staff is committed to assisting our students and their families by pointing them to the only ONE who can truly meet their needs. Through these resources, the focus is prevention, intervention, positive development, and regular communication between school and families.

 

Members of the Support Network represent a school-wide commitment to improve mental health recognition and to provide beneficial resources in supporting students who are experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, or eating disorders. We are excited to discover more ways to impact our students to ensure their positive well-being. 

ELCA does not tolerate bullying, harassment, or intimidation of any sort.  Principals and the school counselor will thoroughly assess and intervene any such suspicions.  Many preventative efforts are made through our Kingdom Educational foundation and Biblical Worldview approach to behavioral expectations.  Our chapel services, Unity Counsel, Student government accountability groups, and more each promote proper treatment of others.  Any deviation is quickly identified and addressed. 

In any instance whereby child abuse or neglect is suspected, the staff member will immediately notify a principal and/or the School Counselor.  The student will be evaluated and referred to the governmental authorities as determined appropriate by these individuals and as consistent with Mandatory Reporting laws.  Mandated Reporters are not required to notify guardians of an official report of child abuse or neglect.  ELCA will disclose this information as deemed safe and appropriate. Georgia Code for Child Abuse and Neglect
