ECS partners with parents to build their children academically, athletically, creatively, socially and spiritually so they are well prepared to be influential leaders for Christ in college and beyond. Our dynamic teachers understand their role as a calling and thrive in a culture in which every student is known, loved and discipled.






The mission of Evangelical Christian School is to provide the

Christian family a Christ-centered, biblically directed

education that challenges students to know the Lord Jesus

Christ and to develop the vision and practice of excellence

in academics, character, leadership, and service to others. 








Currently in its 59th school year, ECS is characterized by its unique Christian discipleship model of education. ECS is the only school in the Memphis area which requires a profession of the Christian faith by at least one parent, a foundation which

allows our administration and teachers to truly partner with parents to build students for life. Christian worldview teaching permeates all academic subjects, and intentional time is spent in the Word of God and prayer during the first five minutes of every school day and reinforced in Bible class and chapel as well as in discipleship groups. Every 7th-12th grade student is involved in a discipleship group of about 8-10 peers led by a teacher who helps them connect biblical truth with everyday life. Parents and students appreciate caring teachers and coaches who teach with excellence in a nurturing and supportive atmosphere, and families find our warm and welcoming community forms lifelong friendships.





We are currently searching for the Head of School who will lead us into our sixth decade of Christian discipleship education in the Memphis area. This leader will be charged with protecting and advancing the mission of ECS, casting a vision to continue to offer and improve upon a distinctively Christian discipleship education while being supported by a healthy board of trustees and parent community, a capable leadership team and gifted faculty, all committed to fulfill the mission of ECS.
