Choosing a school for your child

is one of the most exciting and challenging decisions you will make. Eagle Christian Academy opened its doors in 1984 to 25 students. We remain committed to the philosophy of the school’s founders, as we are guided by our mission statement: Eagle Christian Academy is an academic institution building and equipping leaders with a Christian worldview in Greater Waco. We strive for excellence by empowering students to engage their gifts and talents to make an impact and a difference in their world. Our dedicated faculty of certified teachers share their time, talents, and skills in teaching our children in preschool through eighth grade. They provide valuable role models for the students as they prepare to face many challenges and choices in their lives. Even among private schools the differences are critical. We are dedicated to providing each child the advantages of small classes and individual attention, and our students’ scores on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills are consistently among the highest in the nation. We invite you to visit our school to see first hand the quality of education and care that we offer our students. Thank you for taking the time to visit our school's website. We hope to see you and your child soon in the halls of Eagle Christian Academy! Eagle Christian Academy does not discriminate on the basis of faith, race, national or ethnic origins.
