Who We Are
A UNIQUE SCHOOL WITH A SPECIAL MISSION
Eastside Christian Academy (ECA) is an independent, non-denominational christian school. ECA has a christian-based program that emphasizes both spiritual and academic excellence. The school covers grades from Kindergarten to Grade 9.
ECA is accredited by Alberta Education and uses both the Alberta Education and "School of Tomorrow" curriculum. School of Tomorrow is a unique program which allows students to maximize their learning while working at his/her own individual level of ability in each subject. Students learn in a safe, non-threatening environment that fosters respect for themselves and others.
The classrooms at ECA are not teacher-centered. The students learn and work independently through educational modules at their own pace. This allows the certified teachers to provide ample 1:1 assistance to students when needed. The classrooms are multi-aged, and each student has their own workspace. Students are engaged in their own learning activity without distractions or interruptions, resulting in a high level of accuracy and academic performance. As well, students participate in music classes, physical education, and computer education. In addition, the entire school partakes in weekly chapel services.
The teachers at ECA emphasize a God-centered education and use individualized methods of learning and motivation. Graduates are self-disciplined, spiritually mature, and academically strong.
