Evangel is ACT-focused.

Evangel Christian Academy seeks to graduate students who will be successful at the next level whether that is college or career. The ACT test has proven research that shows that a student’s ACT score directly correlates to his or her academic success; therefore, Evangel has adopted the ACT as our testing focus. This means that our students ACT test three times a year so they are familiar with the format of the test. Teachers focus on ACT standards and offer basic ACT test prep. Our students learn the skills that colleges and workplaces are looking for in a successful student or employee. We appreciate ACT’s diligence in finding the skills necessary for student success at the next level. We teach and reinforce those skills.

 

Evangel is AdvancED certified.

What is AdvancED?

Evangel is a college preparatory school fully accredited by the State of Louisiana Department of Education and all faculty members are required to comply with their rigorous standards. Teachers must have teacher certification in the State of Louisiana, qualified and actively pursuing certification, or teaching in the field in which they majored. ECA is also certified to an even higher standard of excellence by AdvancED, formerly known as the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).

AdvancED is the largest community of education professionals in the world. The organization provides accreditation services to over 32,000 institutions serving over 20 million students worldwide. AdvancED is a non-profit, non-partisan organization that conducts rigorous, on-site external reviews of Pre-K-12 schools and school systems to ensure that all learners realize their full potential. While their expertise is grounded in more than a hundred years of work in school accreditation, AdvancED is far from a typical accrediting agency. Their goal is not to certify that schools are good enough. Rather, their commitment is to help schools continuously improve.

Accreditation is a voluntary method of quality assurance developed more than 100 years ago by American universities and secondary schools and designed primarily to distinguish schools adhering to a set of educational standards. Today the accreditation process is used at all levels of education and is recognized for its ability to effectively drive student performance and continuous improvement in education.

Institutions seeking to gain or retain accreditation must meet AdvancED standards specified for their institution, demonstrate high levels of student performance or improvement of student performance if applicable, and provide evidence of stakeholder satisfaction with the operation of the institution. The accreditation standards focus on conditions and processes within a system that impact student performance and organizational effectiveness. The power of AdvancED Performance Accreditation lies in the connections and linkages between and among the standards, student performance, and stakeholder feedback.

Institutions participate in an External Review by a team of highly qualified evaluators who examine the institution's adherence and commitment to the accreditation criteria. The External Review is the hallmark of AdvancED Performance Accreditation as it energizes and equips the leadership and stakeholders of an institution to achieve higher levels of performance and address those areas that may be hindering efforts to reach desired performance levels. External Review is a rigorous process that includes an examination of evidence and relevant data, interviews with stakeholders, and observations of instruction, learning, and operations.

The AdvancED External Review Team used the AdvancED Accreditation Standards and Indicators and related criteria to guide its evaluation, looking not only for adherence to standards but also for how the institution functioned as a whole and embodied the practices and characteristics of quality.

Using the evidence at their disposal, the AdvancED External Review Team has conferred full accreditation to Evangel Christian Academy.
