Echo Ridge Christian School

Educating The Whole Child
Echo Ridge Christian school

Echo Ridge Christian school is open to all interested students regardless of religious affiliation. Class sizes are purposefully kept small to ensure that each student gets personalized attention. All potential students and their families meet with the principal and teacher to determine if the school would be a good fit. Mid-year inquiries are welcomed - if you or our student is unhappy with their current school, come by or call to find out what ERCS has to offer.

Dedicated to providing a Christ-centered education that nurtures spiritual growth and character formation with the highest academic standards, all of our staff are committed to providing quality education in a loving environment.  
Echo Ridge Christian school is owned and operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and is located in Nevada City, California.
