ECA Remote Learning
Students are actively engaged in Remote Learning while the buildings are closed through the remainder of the year.  

  • ECA students are achieving great progress in Remote Learning. We are in the second half of Quarter 4 and our students are actively engaged within their learning. Administration is diligently working alongside our exceptional, dedicated faculty as they lead the charge in implementing the Remote Learning plan.

  • We are fully committed to our students and families. Our mission and core values remain unchanged.

A Message from Mrs. Hyland
Dear Parents,

I am so thankful for the strong partnership that exists between our parents and ECA. I am grateful that we can work together with you in the unified purpose of educating and preparing your children - the next generation of Christian leaders!

Through this unprecedented COVID-19 crisis, I have been reminded of 2 Corinthians 5:7, “For we live by FAITH, not by sight”. I am humbled as I consider God's sovereignty. We, as a Christian family, can have assurance when we quiet ourselves and listen for His still, small voice. God promises He will never leave or forsake us. We can walk each step of this journey with Him!

I am very much looking forward to the time when we will be together again! In the meantime, please know that our staff continues to lift all of our Eden families before the Lord in prayer . The Lord is our refuge and strength! He will help us navigate this valley together.  

Watch your email on May 8 for a very special Mother’s Day message and video that honors all of our beautiful and wonderfully made ECA moms!  

Many blessings, 
Mrs. Hyland
Berkeley Hills Principal

End of Year Drop-Off & Pick-Up

We are happy to share plans for the June 4 Drop-Off & Pick-Up Day drive-through for parents to drop off Eden materials that your children have at home (textbooks, iPad and charger, library books, etc.) and pick-up your child’s school supplies, belongings, art work, etc.

Here are the details for June 4.

  • June 4, 8:30-11:30 | Drop-off & Pick-up for students with last names A-L.

  • June 4, 12:00 - 3:00 | Drop-off & Pick-up for students with last names M-Z.

  • Simply place all Eden materials in a bag labeled with your child's first & last name and grade written in sharpie marker on the outside.

  • There will be an outdoor drop-off & pick-up drive-through in the parking lot. Berkeley Hills staff members will be posted in lanes that will be identified by the letter of the student’s last name. 

  • Parents can pull into the designated lane and Eden staff (with masks and gloves) will load your child’s belongings and receive your bag of Eden materials.

If you are unable to drop-off and pick-up on June 4, there will be alternative on June 5 from 9:00-11:00. An area will be designated just inside the Berkeley Hills Campus doors to drop-off and pick-up materials. Please have drop-off materials in a bag labeled with your child's first & last name and grade written in sharpie marker on the outside.

We continue to monitor stay-at-home regulations and we will update you if changes to the end-of-year plans are needed.
