East Memorial Christian Academy


East Memorial Christian Academy (EMCA) is a K-12 Christian school located in unincorporated Autauga County, Alabama, near Prattville and in the Montgomery metropolitan area.[1]

According to the Montgomery Advertiser, Scott Phillips, a coach who lead the school's American football program to its first playoff at the state level in years, was fired because he and his family stopped attending the East Memorial Baptist Church, affiliated with the school.[2][3] Phillips said that his contract did not have a clause stating that he was required to go to the church.[4]
