Educating The Whole Child

Echo Ridge Christian School

Echo Ridge Christian School has been in Nevada County for 80 years. In 1962 we opened the doors at our current location, and have been educating students in grades K-8 since then.

Our teachers are enthusiastic and passionate about serving God and inspiring children to reach their full potential. They are professionals who provide research-based instruction and assessment. Teachers are commited to "Educating The Whole Child" by working together with parents to find the best, individualized solutions for the education of each student. Class sizes are kept purposefully small, so as to best serve the needs of each child and to encourage a family-like environment.

Adventist Education 

From the global span of the Adventist educational system to your child's desk, our schools exist to prepare young people for happiness and success on this earth and a glorious life in the world to come. Excellence in academics is critical to our mission, but it isn't enough on its own. Adventist schools aim to develop young people in the image of God, instilling a desire to dedicate their scholarly skills to a higher purpose-making the world a better place.

More than 85% of Adventist high school graduates attend college (1), compared to 66% of public school graduates (2). 

Adventist schools score above the 70th percentile (composite score) on nationally-normed tests (3), performing better than 70% of other private and public schools nationwide (4). Adventist Education serves 1,254,179 students world wide in 6,709 schools with 65,679 teachers (5).
