Key Design Elements

High Academic Standards

The academic program is rigorous and nurturing to support every child to achieve his or her maximum potential. Every child has a personalized learning plan that provides evidence of the student's achievements, strengths, areas in need of improvement, goals, and progress.

Liberal Arts Curriculum

Our schools provide instruction in the core subject areas of ELA, math, science and social studies, as well as classes in music, art, dance, physical education, foreign language, and technology to promote foundational academic knowledge and critical thinking skills that expand to a 21st century global perspective.

Longer School Days

A longer school day allows us to provide instruction in the core subjects and provide co-curricular enrichment. Students receive lessons in a safe, reliable, learning environment that embraces diversity and alleviates social, media, and economic pressures that can distract and prove harmful to scholars.

Performance-Based Compensation

A highly accountable culture so that no students slip through the cracks is rewarded with a commensurate professional salary with room for promotion and advancement as we continue to expand our network.

Flexible Groupings

Our program is designed to challenge every student with highly supportive and sophisticated differentiation. Flexible instructional groupings uniquely tailored for every child’s needs are availed daily and based on ongoing real-time data

Mandatory Uniforms

The school uniforms help to reduce socio-economic tensions that might otherwise distract students from learning, while providing a public symbol of unity and pride.

Behavioral Standards

ECS is rooted in a belief that the learning environment is sacred. Our schools cultivate a nurturing, yet highly accountable learning environment. Reduced student-to-teacher ratios allow more frequent and personalized interactions between students and with staff members.

Parent Engagement

We are an all-encompassing community of scholars and educators unified by our sincere enthusiasm about the intersection between heritage, philosophies and factual information. Our schools promote collaboration and engagement with our families and communities to support our scholars. Parents play an active role within the school community, and we build partnerships with local businesses and organizations to support our initiatives.

Organizational Learning

Our model is highly invested in developing our professional staff and building leadership capacity within our existing talent pool. Employees receive extensive, ongoing, and differentiated professional development to ensure the success and endurance of our organization.
