New name. Same quality care.

Faith Academy Early Learning Center is now the Ascension Christian Early Learning Center. The name change identifies all of our schools- from day care all the way to high school- under one name.

The Early Learning Center (ELC) was established in 1988 as a much needed Christian alternative in childcare for Ascension Parish.  It was designed to reflect the love, integrity, and standard of excellence demonstrated by Jesus Christ in His attitude toward children. The program is Louisiana Class A licensed, meeting the highest standards in the child care industry.

Early childhood education at Ascension Christian ELC, where love and learning go hand in hand, embodies all the fundamentals of early childhood development. We seek to provide Christ-centered, Biblical perspectives to early childhood care and education in the major areas of human development (physical, cognitive, emotional, social and spiritual).

In addition, by interacting with other children, your child develops lasting friendships in a positive and praise-worthy atmosphere. Each child receives individual attention, while at the same time learning how to work and play with others. Our staff encourages an interactive classroom experience. Teachers praise students, building self-confidence as students become more aware of their self-esteem and the world around them.

Our goal is to provide a structured, fun, creative, and learning atmosphere that promotes an enjoyable experience for children. Students learn to acknowledge God in all of their actions and thoughts and celebrate each other and the unique qualities of each of their peers. The diversity in our center shines through in all aspects.

Once that Foundation is built, just as the man built his house on a rock, Ascension Christian ELC, sets the foundation for higher learning in our elementary and high schools.
