The Everett Christian School (ECS) is a Christian school in Everett, Washington, United States. Established in 1926, it is run by the parents of its students, and provides education from preschool through the eighth grade. Everett Christian School's colors are blue and white, and their mascot is a Badger.

Everett Christian School was established in 1926 by parents as the Society of Christian Schools in Everett. Since 1926, ECS has been educating children from Christian homes based in a Reformed Christian tradition. ECS has then become the most athletic basketball and soccer teams in the Tri-County league.[citation needed] ECS is an approved institution of academic learning by the State of Washington and is a participating member of Christian Schools International and Northwest Christian School International. Everett Christian School has between 70 and 100 students on average with a faculty to student ratio of 1 to 14.

The Everett Christian School parents, faculty, and staff believe the Bible teaches that God established a special relationship (covenant) with Christians. Because of that relationship, Christians participate in this special relationship with God in all aspects of their lives. The current teachers include Dan Davelaar, Cheryl DeJong, Elaine Jenkins, Rachel DeJong, and the principal Matt Kamps who teaches 8th grade algebra and Bible class for the 7th and 8th grades.

The stated purpose of the ECS is to confront students with the important realities of life, so they may learn how to evaluate them in relation to the principles taught in the Christian Bible. Because the Christian Bible and learning according to ECS are linked, they use a Bible-based curriculum.
