Year-round Open Enrollment:
Evangel House all girls private boarding school is a twelve-month year-round school which means your daughter may be admitted at any point in the year. Assisting parents who need immediate assistance is anticipated.

The Profile Student Attending EHCA:
Our school is structured with the christian family in mind. The profile EHCA student has come from a successful christian home, but may have recently struggled in her spiritual relationship with God.

Most EHCA students have a history of demonstrating great potential. Most have been involved in church, youth group, and may have even gone on mission's trips or other outreaches.

Their history of success is usually overshadowed by current choices and behavior problems. Parents enroll their daughter to take action before the problems become more serious. Some problems are given DSM-IV diagnoses such as major depression, ADD, ADHD, bi-polar disorder, and other mood or learning disorders. The problems can take on different forms, but a key factor is that the outward behaviors are symptoms of an internal struggle.
