Eddlemon Adventist Christian Academy (EACA) began as a one-room school in 1951 in the basement of the Spartanburg Seventh-day Adventist Church on High Point Road. In 1963, the school moved to its present location. In 1994, work on the current facility was completed.
Our school consists of students from several different Christian religions. EACA is a subsidiary of the Spartanburg Seventh-day Adventist Church and is a member institution of the Carolina Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. EACA is accredited by the Accrediting Association of Seventh-day Adventist Schools, Colleges, and Universities, INC.
“An Adventist school gives you more opportunities and keeps you safe physically and mentally. For example, Adventist schools let you talk about God. That is a great privilege to be able to pray to Him and not be suspended.”Kelsey Perez, Student
To encourage individual fulfillment through academic excellence and spiritual development.
The Seventh-day Adventist philosophy of education is based on certain fundamental principles which shape not only education procedures, but which also blend into the basic message and mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The following factors are inherent in the principles which provide the structure of the Seventh-day Adventist Education.
We believe in the education of the whole person. Education is not limited to the mere development of the intellect. Furthermore, this educational process is a continuing experience throughout the life of the individual. The home, the school, the church, and the community participate in this process of education.
Consistent with the stated philosophy, our objectives are as follows:
- To lead each student to a knowledge of God as his or her Creator, Sustainer, Loving Father, Redeemer, Example, and Best Friend.
- To develop in the student intellectual curiosity, creativity, accuracy, self-discipline, responsibility, clear reasoning, respect, and leadership.
- To provide a program which challenges students to educational excellence, and to provide an atmosphere of love and acceptance for all students to fulfill his or her civic responsibilities, thereby realizing satisfaction from service to others.
- To encourage the student to adopt principles of healthful living, including a balance in diet, physical exercise, adequate rest, and the abstinence from harmful substances and practices.
- To provide an atmosphere of love and acceptance for all students and to aid in the development of interactive social skills.
