Before completing an application for admission, please take a moment to confirm that ECS is a good fit for your family:
Spiritual compatibility: Because of the Christian discipleship focus in our K-8 program, we ask that at least one parent be a follower of Christ, able to provide spiritual support at home for their child’s journey of faith. Our preschool program is a good fit for families who are Christian or those who are interested in learning more about the Christian faith.
English proficiency: Because we have no ELL program, near grade-level proficiency in English is required of all K-8 students. A limited number of preschool seats are available for English language learners in order to provide them with an English-rich environment and the necessary teacher attention to thrive.
Age requirements: Preschoolers and kindergarteners must be the age of their corresponding class on or before August 31 of their enrollment year:
- Classes for 3’s and 4’s (P2, P3, PA2/3/5): 3 years old by August 31
- Classes for 4’s and 5’s (P4, P5, PK2/3/5): 4 or 5 years old by August 31
(All preschoolers must be fully potty trained before beginning classes.)
- Kindergarten: 5 years old by August 31

READY TO APPLY?
If you are ready to apply, please click on the following link to access our online application. ECS’s District Code is ES-WA, and a $75 application fee will be required to submit the application. Because the fee is non-refundable, we recommend that you confirm the availability of a seat before making any payments.
Once your application has been received, you will be contacted to schedule an assessment for your K-8th grade student or a family interview for your preschooler. During the K-8 assessment, parents will have an opportunity to meet with our principal.
ECS may also request that a Confidential Teacher Referral Form be completed by the student’s most recent teacher and returned to ECS.
Should admission be offered, you will receive an email directing you to your child’s enrollment packet. Please complete the packet online and submit it with the required fee.
Other required documents include:
- Certificate of Immunization Status (CIS)
- Copy of birth certificate (Preschool and Kindergarten only)
We love that Christianity is exemplified by all staff, administration, and teachers. We feel that what our children are learning at school is always presented from a Christian worldview-consistent with what we teach at home.
