ECS Distinctives

"A truly Christian education is possible only when Christian education underlies not a part, but all, of the curriculum of the school. True learning and true piety go hand in hand, and Christianity embraces the whole of life - those are great central convictions that underlie the Christian school."  J. Gresham Machen

At Everett Christian School we emphasize Christ's sovereignty over all of creation, all subject areas and over all of life. Our teachers integrate a Christian world and life view into all subject areas with the ECS Distinctives.  These are qualities and characteristics that we desire our students to develop as God is revealed to them in all things.  They run throughout our daily curriculum and help provide meaning to the entire educational experience.  Our ECS Distinctives link all subjects and topics together by connecting them to discipleship and are characteristics that guide our living.  It is these characteristics that then help our students answer the question: How NOW shall I live?

Image-Reflecting

We are all image bearers of God; while we don't always act righteously and we don't always do things successfully, all humans are image reflectors.
