Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life.
At Ephesus Jr. Academy we're more than a K-8 school. We are a ministry aimed at the hearts of kids, with a mission to educate the whole child. EJA offers accredited K-8th grade education with a solid Seventh-day Adventist Christian foundation. We believe believe in taking care of the most important thing...HEART.
We assist parents in developing their children to become all that God created them to be, in a safe, nurturing environment. Ephesus Jr. Academy provides high quality academic programs, leadership opportunities, fine arts, and unique mission opportunities which prepare students for the next level where God leads them.
These are the core values that we believe are essential to life. If each Ephesus Jr. Academy student learns the importance of each of these, we will have succeeded in our goal to prepare our students to live a life for Jesus.
