The History of Our School

as a Private School, registered with the California State Department

We believe the Lord has charged parents with the responsibility
of instructing their children.
Deuteronomy 6:5-9 (NIV)
Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and
with all your strength. These commandments that I give you today are to
be upon your hearts. Impress them on your children. Talk about them when
you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and
when you get up. Tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your
foreheads. Write them on the doorframes of your houses and on your gates.
Proverbs 22:6 (NIV)
Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not
turn from it.
Ephesians 6:4b (NIV)
bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.
ESA was established to help families who have chosen
to heed God's Word in the form of home education. Our record keeping/mentoring
service was specifically designed for families that:
- Do not need direct oversight to meet the
educational goals they have established for the training and instruction
of their children.
- Are looking for an accountability system that will
keep them "on
track" with their education and record keeping.
- Desire the umbrella
covering of an established private Christian school.
- Desire help ensuring
all legal requirements are being met.
- Agree with ESA’s Statement
Statement of Faith
- We believe that both the Old and New Testaments
are the inspired Word of God, revealing the three Persons of the Godhead:
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- We believe in the incarnation and virgin
birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ who became man without ceasing
to be God.
- We believe that man was created in the image of God, but
is separated from God by sin.
- We believe that man is redeemed by grace
through faith in Christ's substitutionary atonement for sins, by the
shedding of His blood on
- We believe that the gift of eternal life is available to
all men, that those who are regenerated by the Holy Spirit receive
Christ by faith
and thereby become children of God.
- We believe in the bodily resurrection
of Christ, His imminent return, and the resurrection of His people
to life everlasting.
