ECS maintains accreditation from AdvancED, Southern Association of Independent Schools, and Association of Christian Schools International Exemplary Accreditation based on an extensive evaluation process every five years. In 2016, that process was expanded as ECS pursued the Exemplary school status.
Now one of only eleven schools in the nation and one of only two in the entire Southeast,
Evangelical Christian School has been designated as an ACSI Exemplary School.
2017-2018 SCHOOL THEME
2017-2018 SCHOOL VERSE
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope" (Romans 15:13 ESV).
The 2017-2018 Theme art was designed and created by ECS Artist in Residence/Art Department Chair David Butler who explained the background though process behind it:
When I looked at the verse, I looked at the nouns…Joy, peace, hope…I was drawn to the idea of Hope. There is a painting by George Frederick Watts called Hope that shows a blind person listening to a harp with only one string. It reminded me that hope is blind or often unseen. Abound - reminded me of teeming… as in Genesis that God made the bodies of waters teem with fish. I used braille patterns to spell hope on the water that the fish are swimming in - they can't see the water, but it is necessary for life and abundance. The fish food (looks like bubbles) spell “joy” and “peace” in braille as well. So God is filling the fish with joy and peace as they abound in hope (water). . . . -David Butler, Artist in Residence
