Grandparent's Day

Having our students’ grandparents and great-grandparents visit on Grandparents’ Day and joining their grandchildren for breakfast was a very special day. Thank you to all the grandparents that came out to celebrate with our students! A big thank you to our PTO for hosting the event!

Diez y Seis de Septiembre

On the church steps in the town of Dolores Hidalgo, Father Miguel Hidalgo y Castilla read the Gritto de Hidalgo (or "Call of Hidalgo") in 1810.

That day, September 16 (Diez y Seis de Septiembre), Father Hidalgo launched the Mexican War of Independence against Spain. After the declaration, Hidalgo and his followers set out to spread the word to nearby San Miguel de Allende. Hidalgo affixed an image of the Virgin of Guadalupe to a staff, bringing the Virgin to symbolize the Mexican liberation movement.

ECA celebrated Diez y Seis de Septiembre by having students and staff dress for the occasion, as well as, class lessons and events. Elizabeth Alaniz, Campus Director, served aguas frescas to students as a cool treat after PE.


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 Kindergarten.

Big picture


Self-control is the core character virtue for the month of September. Often a key topic in self-help books, the character trait of self-control is important not just for successful leaders and successful students, but also for citizens in democratic republics like the United States of America.

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.
