About Us

Elevate Christian Academy is a private Christian model that combines the benefits of home education and campus enrichment. Our goal is to empower students to be world changers for their generation.

 

 

Operating in Biblical Principles

The Bible is the inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God. Jesus Christ is the central theme of history and is the central authority of what men say, do, or believe. Man was created in God’s image, but that image was ruined at the fall when man chose to sin against God. God provided a way of redemption for man through the life, death and resurrection of His Son, Jesus Christ. A regenerated person receives the Holy Spirit to guide him into all truth. 

Christ Centered Teachings

We seek to ground everything we do on the transforming gospel of Jesus Christ. All members of the educational process at Elevate Christian Academy are personally committed to Jesus Christ. We seek to integrate Biblical truth into each enrichment subject being taught. We believe the educational process is only accomplished through the ministry of the Holy Spirit. 

Building Strong Relationships

We believe that a proper relationship between family, church, and school is essential to Christian education. It is the responsibility of the parent to teach and train a child. Elevate Christian Academy, as a ministry of the Elevate Church, is an extension of the educational process of the home. 

Instilling Godly Wisdom

The pursuit of knowledge is more than the collection of information. It also includes understanding and Godly wisdom. We are committed to leading children and their families to a restored relationship with God, to graduating students with both competence and character, and to developing history makers and world changers for the glory of God. 

We offer two levels of homeschooling for K-8 students:

 Level 1

  • Enrolled student

  • Spirit
    wear

  • On campus enrichment classes

Elevate Christian Academy files an affidavit with the State of California as a PSP:
PSP stands for Private Satellite Program. PSP's are authorized by the State of California to enroll homeschool students and record keep for them. PSP's are responsible for reporting to the state of California and verifying that your student is, indeed, enrolled in school.

Why would I need to join ECA, when I can file my own affidavit independently?

Joining Elevate Christian Academy Homeschool Program brings opportunities for fellowship, support, group socialization, and accountability! Our activities encourage families to connect with other private, Christian home school students in our community. If your student desires to attend college or join the military, a diploma from a school listed on the CDE website, can be very helpful, if not required.

 

10 reasons to consider homeschooling for your child

1. Continue the Family-Building Process

 

 The teen years are a strategic time to cement relationships that last a lifetime. Parents can continue as the primary role models. You can make sure that your teen is instructed and discipled consistently each day with moral training and sound doctrine.

2. Cement Family Relationships

Relationships are the most important thing in family life. When teens are away from home for six-to-eight hours a day, subtle changes begin to erode relationships at home. Divided allegiance or "serving two masters" can shake their foundation. The result is weakened family ties and parental influence.

3. Provide an Excellent Learning Environment

 

 Receiving one-on-one instruction is the most effective way to learn. At home, academics have priority, and there are no classroom distractions. Conversely, studies show that barely one third of the school day in traditional high schools is dedicated to academics.

5. Accelerate Academic Progress

 

 Many homeschooled children are academically ready to do college-level work between the ages of 14 and 16. Additionally, researchers have found that age/grade isolation or segregation actually inhibits socialization. Available data demonstrates that homeschooled children are ahead of their public school counterparts in maturity, socialization, and vocabulary development.

7. Protect from the Pressure to Conform

 

 Teens feel strong pressure to compromise their standards and personal identity to conform to "the group." Few are mature enough to withstand constant pressure.

9. Create a Safe Learning Environment

 

 News headlines tell us that the presence of drugs and violence are escalating on high school campuses across the country. Homeschooling offers a safe haven for learning, and it provides more opportunity for parents to recognize and lovingly intervene if their child exhibits at-risk behavior.

4. Individualize Education Based on Needs

You can customize your teen's education to provide motivating opportunities to develop gifts and abilities. In areas of academic weakness, you can provide extra time and help. No classroom setting can offer this consistent and loving support.

6. Have Direct Influence over Peer Relationships

Homeschooling allows parents to fulfill their God-given responsibility to oversee the choices and amount of time spent outside the family. Parents can mentor their teens as they develop the important life skills of evaluating and choosing friends, resolving conflicts, and handling romantic relationships.

8. Maintain Flexibility

Homeschooling allows great flexibility for family plans and work or service opportunities. Through these venues, teens can gain valuable experience to help prepare them for future adult responsibilities.

10. Allow God to Show Himself Strong

2 Chronicles 16:9 says, "For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him." Let us look to God and trust Him as our provider during these special years.
