The Evangelical Christian Academy (ECA) is a Christian school in Madrid, Spain that was established to meet the educational needs of missionary children.[1] ECA distinguishes itself among other private Christian schools by recruiting volunteer (missionary) teachers in order to offset the cost of tuition for missionary children.[2]

Introduction[edit]

ECA serves roughly 100 students in grades Kindergarten through 12th grade. Students graduating from this school have gone on to study at institutions such as Oxford, Moody Bible Institute, Purdue, Georgia Tech, Bob Jones University, and Covenant College.[2] Since 2002, the school has been located in the village of Camarma de Esteruelas, which is approximately 20 miles outside of Madrid, Spain. The Evangelical Christian Academy first opened in 1973.[3]

Collaboration with Mission Agencies[edit]

ECA is supported by a group of mission agencies, each of which are represented on a Board of Trustees. The following mission agencies appear on the Board of Trustees:[4]

  • ABWE – Association of Baptists for Worldwide Evangelization
  • Assemblies of God
  • FWB - Free Will Baptist Global Outreach
  • IMB - International Mission Board of the Southern Baptists
  • MTW – Mission to The World
  • One Mission Society (formerly OMS International)
  • Resourcing Christian Education (RCE International)
  • SEND International
  • TEAM – The Evangelical Alliance Mission
  • WorldTeam
  • World Venture (formerly CBI)

Several mission agencies, such as CAM International,[5] One Mission Society,[6] and SEND International,[7] actively recruit missionaries to teach at the Evangelical Christian Academy. These mission agencies help ECA meet its need for teachers.

Strategy for Reducing Cost of Tuition[edit]

The Evangelical Christian Academy distinguishes itself from other public and private schools by its means of operation; ECA recruits missionaries to teach purely on a volunteer basis. Each teacher raises his or her own financial support before teaching at ECA.[2] The money saved by employing missionary teachers is used to reduce the cost of tuition for missionary children. The fact that ECA's tuition differs for missionary children and non-missionary children[8] highlights the fact that the school was designed to serve missionary children in Spain.
