Purpose and Philosophy

We recognize that God has ordained the home as primarily responsible for the training of children, and the purpose of Erie First Christian Academy shall be to complement the home by partnering with and not taking the place of parents in this training.  Our teachers seek to be proper role models so that the home and school reinforce each other.

Erie First Christian Academy’s educational philosophy is based upon a God-centered view of truth as it is presented in the Bible. The Scripture explains man’s fallen nature and the need for regeneration through the acceptance by faith of Jesus’ redemptive act upon the cross. The entire process of Christian education is seen as a means used by the Holy Spirit to impart to each student a Biblical world view, to bring the student into fellowship with God, and to develop a Christ-like attitude toward all things.

It is our desire that each individual student grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3:18).  As educators we challenge them to ask, “What is God’s purpose for my life?”  At EFCA our purpose is to provide each student with the opportunity to develop and excel spiritually, intellectually, socially, culturally, and physically through a quality educational program to help the student answer that question.
