EVERGREEN CHRISTIAN PRIVATE SCHOOL
Evergreen Christian Private School (ECPS) is a K-8th Grade OSPI-approved school in Federal Way, WA. Our enrollment for 2022-2023 is 240 students, and we operate on a beautiful church campus. ECPS is hiring a full-time Principal/Director for the upcoming school year.
Our mission is to provide a superior, quality education from a Biblical perspective. We are committed to enabling our students to thrive and succeed academically, spiritually, and socially.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding (Proverbs 9:10).” We believe that this scripture demands diligence, integrity, and the pursuit of excellence. We strive to apply this philosophy in all facets of our school, fostering the growth of wise, God-fearing individuals, who are of strong Christian spirit and character.
We believe a Biblically based education influences the child’s mind, body, heart, and worldview. Our vision is to train both the heart and mind of students in the development of Godly wisdom so they may reflect the character of Jesus Christ in everything they do.
SCHOOL WIDE EXPECTED STUDENT OUTCOMES
In accordance with our vision, our goal is to graduate students whose mind, body, heart, and worldview is grounded in strong Christian character. Our goal is for our students to be recognizably different, a light, as written in Matthew 5:16, and ultimately, inheritors of His kingdom.
