East Linn Christian Academy Since 1982

Harold and Dorothy Grove

East Linn Christian Academy was founded in 1982 as a Christian school with an emphasis on discipleship. Colossians 3:23 was established as the guiding verse: Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters. This verse has been at the heart of the school for thirty years. Since the first day the doors of East Linn Christian Academy were opened in 1981 by founders Harold and Dorothy Grove, the mission has been to serve parents by educating their children in a God-centered Scripture-based educational environment, equipping students academically, emotionally, physically and spiritually to serve Christ.

The Lord has used East Linn Christian Academy to touch the hearts and minds of many young people in the last thirty years. Through strategic visioning in 2011 we were able to articulate our mission with increased clarity; to provide an education of excellence, rooted in Biblical truth, to impact the world for Christ. Ephesians 4:12-14, to equip the saints for the work of the ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God. to mature manhood to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes, is now included as a verse that will be used to guide us as we prepare our students for the 21st Century.

The young people moving through our program are intellectually prepared to utilize knowledge to serve Christ with passion! Our caring faculty and staff unselfishly pour themselves into the lives of the students, making absolutely sure that there is something very unique about an East Linn Christian education. This approach to education becomes evident as you see our students develop a Christian worldview, personalizing their faith, enabling them to become valued members in the community, in their churches, and on the mission field. What continues to happen today at East Linn Christian Academy happens because of the faithfulness of our supporters who uphold us in prayer and give of their time, talents and money.
