Classes at ECA are designed to encourage students to push themselves academically. Students are taught how to study and prepare for challenges that they will face in college and beyond.
In order to prepare students for success at the collegiate level, ECA offers several honors level classes in Math, Science, English and Spanish.
ECA offers various AP classes in English and Technology. AP classes provide our students with a competitive edge and push them to higher academic achievement.
Students entering their Sophomore year have the opportunity to enroll in College-level, advanced placement classes by Liberty University, Maranatha Baptist University and Capital Community College. Courses are offered during the school year and during summer break. Upon successful completion of the course, students earn three college credits and one high school credit.
Any course taken in the Dual Enrollment program will carry the same weight as an honors class toward their GPA. Because Liberty and Maranatha are regionally accredited, credits should transfer to any regionally accredited college or University. Every college or university has their own procedures for transfer credits, so please check to ensure that credits will transfer to the institution your student is interested in attending.
Because we live in a digital world, we believe a proper preparation for success in any job market should include training in the most sought-after technical skills. We offer classes in 3D printing, Web design and creation (focusing on WordPress), APP design and development, Object-oriented programming and Microsoft Office applications (Access, Excel, Word, Powerpoint). The Microsoft class includes the opportunity to earn certification as a component of the class. These skills are essential to success in an increasingly digital world. We are constantly modifying are selections to prepare our students and equip them with the skills needed to thrive in a global economy.
