Fall Week of Prayer: A Hybrid Experience!

Our Fall Week of Prayer was a bit different, due to social distancing, but we still had a great time! Mr. Thomas organized an entire week of spiritual lessons centered around the theme, "The Names of God". Each day, we learned a different name, and what it means. From El Shaddai, to Yahweh, to The Great I Am...It's truly amazing how God can be so many things to us, no matter what we are going through! Highlights of the week included singing our theme song, winning prizes, and a puppet show put on by the 6th-8th graders. On Friday, our very own Pastor Banks joined us to wrap up the week with a very special message! Parents, be sure to ask the students all about it!

Monday-Report Card Day

Report cards will be sent home with students and emailed to the parent email address we have on file. If you do not receive the report card, please let us know right away. 2nd quarter is off to a strong start, and we are expecting even more great things from our students! Remember, if you ever have a question about your child's progress, please contact their teacher.


If you would like to follow your child's academic progress and check their grades, use the link below to sign up for our Parents' Web portal. To create an account, sign up with your email address and use our district code: aec-sda. If you have any trouble logging in, please contact our school office for assistance.

EJA Election Day-Tuesday

Parents, as you head to the polls on Tuesday, our EJA students will be voting for their student council officers! This Monday, students who are running will answer questions at our first "town hall" meeting. Students already received a copy of the questions last week, so they will need to be prepared with their answers. Our polls will be open from 12:00-2:00 on Tuesday, and results will be announced before the end of the day.

Tuition Payment Updates

Tuition is always due on the 15th of each month. For now, please continue to make your payments via CashApp ($Ejapay). Tuition statements were emailed to each family. If you have any questions about your account, please email Mr. Paul: ejatreasurer@yahoo.com


The new FACTs website is almost ready to launch! Once we get the go from the company, parents can begin signing up for payment plans. We will let you know when you can begin creating your account and signing up. We will continue to update you and assist you during this process.
