Meeting Needs, Impacting Lives, Training
Those who give their lives
to serve in a country other than their own seek the best education possible
for their children. For over 25 years, Evangelical Christian Academy (ECA)
has done just that - provided a haven of Biblically based education in English
for the children of missionaries serving in Spain.
The parents of our students
are involved in carrying out the Great Commission. They serve as pastors,
teachers, church planters, and field leaders. Although Spain is a religious
nation, less than 1% of the population actually knows Christ as personal Savior
and Lord. The average size of a Protestant church is less than 25 members.
ECA offers grades 1-12.
While elementary grades are multi-level, the secondary school is college preparatory
and we offer many advanced placement courses. 97% of our graduates pursue
higher education, including place such as Oxford, Annapolis, Wheaton, and
All of our full-time faculty
members are missionaries themselves. They are professional teachers who must
secure their own financial support prior to coming to teach at ECA. This,
in and of itself, demonstrates their commitment to their calling and their
willingness to serve!
Exciting times lie ahead
for ECA! Construction of our new facility is underway, and it will be located
15 miles east of Madrid. Completion is scheduled for summer 2001. Although
ECA is currently a day school, our vision through Project DAVID is to one
day add boarding or hostel facilities, to enable us to better meet the educational
needs of missionary families serving outside the Madrid area.
The school currently has
about 85 students, grades 1-12, all MKs. SEND currently has more students
in the school than any other mission. Certified teachers are preferred.

unable to stay in Spain and continue our ministry."

missionary kids are bi-or tri- cultural, it makes them a unique group.
But that gives them a unique potential to reach their world for Christ."
at ECA are more than teachers - they are also your best friends!"
that ECA is the
only Christian school in all of Spain, which is a country of 40 million people
and just smaller than the state of Texas?
