Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year

Dear Parents,

On behalf of the staff at Edinburg Classical Academy, I am happy to welcome you to the 2019-2020 school year! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that in order to be successful in school, our children need support from both the home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a great difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities. We ask that you guide and support your child’s learning by ensuring that he/she:

  • Attends school daily before 7:45am and ready for the day’s learning experience

  • Completes all homework assignments given by teachers

  • Reads daily to develop a love for reading and to improve literacy skills

  • Shares school experiences with you so that you are aware of his/her school life

  • Knows that you expect him/her to succeed in school and go on to college

Please consider signing up as a volunteer and/or joining our PTO as our students can greatly benefit from your involvement and contributions to the school’s program and its operations. We seek parents to help us with the following:

  • School-wide events

  • Student recognition events

  • Outreach and recruitment of parent and community volunteers

Please review the RES & ECA Handbooks together with your child, which can be accessed on our website. If you have any questions about the rules and expectations, please feel free to contact me or to discuss them with your child’s teacher. It is very important that you and your child are fully informed regarding standards related to appropriate behavior for a safe and productive school year.

A few reminders:

  • School hours are from 7:45am-3:15pm. Class begins promptly at 7:45am and students will be considered tardy after 7:50am. All tardy students must be signed in at the front office.

  • Breakfast will be served in the classroom to all students.

The wonderful Edinburg Classical Academy staff and I feel privileged to be a part of this school family. We thank you for your support and look forward to meeting you.

From ECA's PTO


Encouraging regular school attendance is one of the most powerful ways you can prepare your child for success—both in school and in life. When you make school attendance a priority, you help your child get better grades, develop healthy life habits, avoid dangerous behavior and have a better chance of graduating from high school.

When kids are absent for an average of just two days of school per month—even when the absences are excused– it can have a negative impact. These absences can affect kids as early as Pre-Kindergarten.

Common Sense Media

Common Sense is the leading independent nonprofit organization dedicated to helping kids thrive in a world of media and technology. We empower parents, teachers, and policymakers by providing unbiased information, trusted advice, and innovative tools to help them harness the power of media and technology as a positive force in all kids’ lives.

Media and technology are at the very center of all our lives today -- especially our children’s. Kids today spend over 50 hours of screen time every week. The media content they consume and create has a profound impact on their social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. Learning how to use media and technology wisely is an essential skill for life and learning in the 21st century. But parents, teachers, and policymakers struggle to keep up with the rapidly changing digital world in which our children live and learn. Now more than ever, they need a trusted guide to help them navigate a world where change is the only constant.

About Us

At Edinburg Classical Academy, our educational vision recognizes the value of each child as a person and each parent as their primary educator. While teaching virtuous conduct and offering a generous curriculum, we prioritize the value of respecting and building the child’s dignity as an individual while offering them an atmosphere which reflects truth, goodness, and beauty. Children have a natural appetite for knowledge, and we seek to offer sustenance for the child’s mind by creating a rich intellectual environment for students to develop connections between all subjects.
