Academics

AN EDUCATION THAT LASTS A LIFETIME

Providing a quality education is important to the administration and faculty of Eastland Christian School. As a college preparatory school, Eastland stresses academic excellence. Whether preparing students for higher education, vocational training or the job market, Eastland Christian School is committed to preparing students for the future.

ACCREDITATION

Eastland Christian School is accredited by the Florida Association of Christian Colleges and School.

CURRICULUM

A quality education begins with the curriculum, and Eastland proudly utilizes both the ABeka and Bob Jones University programs. The strength of ABeka’s thorough curriculum is its emphasis on phonics, reading and mathematics, which many believe to be of a higher standard than that used in most public school standards. All of the materials are Christian-based. With the Bob Jones University curriculum, subjects are also taught from a biblical viewpoint, with an emphasis on the practical and logical aspects of learning: doing and experiencing. The materials help students understand and evaluate what they read, solve problems, write with conviction and clarity and enable teachers to address the students’ unique needs.

FACULTY

The personal commitment of Eastland’s faculty provides a strong atmosphere of learning, discipline and sharing of Christian values. All teachers are certified in their respective area of teaching, and strive to give that “extra help” and encouragement when needed by their students. Because Eastland’s standards for faculty are exceptional, we are especially proud to have several former students on the Eastland staff. Eastland parents are encouraged to participate in regular Parent-Teacher Fellowships each grading period, and special parent-teacher conferences are welcomed.

STUDENT ACHIEVEMENTS

Because Eastland students are academically challenged, they achieve. Our students have received many regional and state honors in the FACCS competitions. These include various competitions with other schools in the areas of spelling, creative writing and fine arts competitions. It is no wonder then that in standardized achievement testing, ECS students consistently perform at least one year above the national level.

Seniors qualify for the Bright Futures Scholarship Program, which was created in 1997 by the Florida Legislature. The scholarship rewards students for their academic achievements during high school by providing funding for them to pursue postsecondary educational and career goals in Florida. 90% of applying Eastland seniors have been awarded 75% Florida Merit Scholarships; some have received 100%.

A thorough education takes the Eastland student beyond a classroom setting and gives an opportunity to interact with others in a practical manner. Students carry these leadership roles further as they serve in their respective churches and in the community.

CHAPEL

All students participate in the joy of praise and worship in a regularly scheduled chapel service each week.

PRIDE OF COUNTRY

Through Patriotism Day and other learning experiences throughout the school year, emphasis is placed upon the greatness of America’s heritage and the sacrifice of her heroes. Students are prepared to take their place in an effective manner in the home, church and state.
