Accreditation Graphic with Logo and Announcement

ECS has been granted full accreditation from Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools (MSA-CESS) without stipulations (meaning there were no changes needing to be made before taking effect), and extends through the year 2031.

After representatives from MSA (Middle States Association Commissions on Elementary and Secondary Schools) visited our school and did a thorough review our curriculum, policies and faculty and interviewed parents, students, board members, and staff, they have recommended ECS for full accreditation without any stipulations. This is the highest recommendation that MSA awards. Their report has already been forwarded to MSA which will make the official pronouncement of accreditation later this semester. One of the reasons for going through accreditation is it helps us find ways to improve our school. But our commitment to continuous school improvement is grounded in a much higher authority.

Celebrating Seniors

December 31, 2023

The culminating moment of a high school education is graduation, the moment when each student receives their diploma and is celebrated for completing an achievement twelve years in the making. It also marks the start of a new journey as each student heads off to college or embarks on a new career. Graduation is, after all, where the proverbial rubber meets the road. Our school’s mission is to prepare the next generation of Christian leaders. Having seniors who go out into the world to fulfill that mission is the ultimate indicator that we at Evergreen Christian School have effectively done our job.

​​​​​​​One of the benefits of being a covenant-model school that partners with both the home, the Church, and the Christian community is having guest speakers throughout the school year.

Head of School Speaking to Audience in Gym

On October 17, 2023, we held a “first-of-its-kind” on-campus presentation entitled Envisioning Our Future: Building upon a Firm Foundation. This was an opportunity for our school community to reflect upon the past faithfulness of God and look forward to the vision he has given us for the future. In case you missed this event, please read more in the article by Head of School Michael Dewey.

ECS Hits Record Enrollment

September 29, 2023

Head of School Michael Dewey says, "I am in awe when I think of the faithfulness of God in both establishing and growing our school. Each year we have prayerfully set ambitious enrollment goals for Evergreen Christian, and each year we have surpassed those goals. Knowing the challenges we have faced as a start-up program, I can honestly say that beginning this year with 151 students in grades 9-12 is a complete work of God. 151 students! Just writing that number fills me with praise."

Image of an Anchor and Scripture

Not only does God have a perfect track record when it comes to keeping his promises, he will continue to be perfect. Because God has a maximally perfect nature (that he has sworn by), dishonesty, fickleness, changing his mind, or going back on his word are absolute impossibilities. Thinking of God in these terms, how is it that we ever doubt a single promise of God? God can no more break a promise than he can go against his nature.

High School Students Reading Their Bibles

As educators and parents, we need to help our children go beyond the mere intellectual assent that God is the perfect promise keeper, to having absolute confidence that God never breaks His word. I am convinced that if we can get them to that point, it will not only radically change their relationship with God, but in turn change how they relate to others and the world around them.

Speaking Out for Truth

November 1, 2022

The world doesn’t need just any kind of leader. It needs leaders who stand for what is good and true. It needs a new generation of young people raised up to lead on behalf of Christ. By God’s grace and through his word, Evergreen Christian School will prepare them to courageously, faithfully, and winsomely speak out for truth.

Authenticity of Faith

September 26, 2022

If we want today’s young people to know that our message is categorically different than all the others, that having a personal relationship with Christ is the most important thing in life, then they need to see the difference it has made in our own lives. Only then will they stop saying, “So what?” and start saying, “So what now?”

I Want to Belong!

December 30, 2021

God created us to know and love him. The need to belong that is hardwired into each of us is a need to belong to him. We can never satisfy that longing with anything other than God. This is why Jesus came into this world. He is God’s answer to the heart crying out to belong. Today, it is our young teens who are most profoundly crying out daily, struggling with their identity. The greatest gift we can give them is a community where they can find their place in Him.
