Wil and Lylli Franco moved to the Memphis area from the northwest suburbs of Chicago when Wil took the Lead Pastor position at Mission Church (formerly Highpoint Church). When they moved, Leanna, their older daughter, attended a local public school, and Alyssia, their younger daughter, was enrolled in PDO of a local church. Both girls started at ECS during the 2020-2021 school year when Leanna was in second grade and Alyssia was in junior kindergarten. Currently, the girls are in fifth grade and second grade, respectively.
What made you decide that ECS was the right place for your children’s education?
Once the pandemic hit, we were questioning the education systems’ decisions and education format. We had an opportunity to meet with Braxton and the principal, and we fell in love with their vision for education, intentionality of discipleship, and focus on the gospel.
In what ways did the Lord confirm your decision to send your children to ECS?
We had several conversations about public education vs. private education. While we believe there are benefits to both, for our kids, we saw the benefit of private education. We talked with our oldest about the transition and option and really left it up to the Lord to confirm if it was the right choice. Within a week, we were all in unity around starting ECS, and it has been such a blessing to our children and to us.
