About ECS Online Academy
At ECS Online Academy, our mission is to provide students in 3rd -12th grades with an excellent academic education in a virtual environment that honors God and challenges students to reach their highest potentials mentally, socially, and spiritually.
ECS Online teachers are licensed professionals who hold degrees in their fields. The teacher assesses student work and is responsible for the curriculum and the day-to-day academic well-being of each student.
After completing the lessons of the curriculum, which are presented in text and video format, students complete problems, assignments, and tests electronically. Parents and students have instant access to grades and can quickly gain feedback regarding the student's progress. Each day, ECS Online teachers grade written work, such as essays and projects, and communicate grades and comments to parents and students. Due dates and past due notices help students adhere to their weekly lesson plans.
ECS is registered as a non-public school, accredited through the Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools, Inc. (FACCS) and the International Association of Christian Colleges and Schools (IACCS).
