About Us

Welcome to Effort Christian School & Preschool

7820 Thomas Jefferson Pkwy

ECSP is a small private school located near beautiful Lake Monticello, VA. We offer classes from Kindergarten through 8th Grade, and Preschool for ages 2 1/2 – 5 years old.

We exist to ignite a passion to know and follow Jesus into our next generation. We do this by providing an education that not only builds academic knowledge, but builds a relationship with Jesus.

Our preschool

We’ve designed our curriculum to help children develop social skills and to stimulate their intellectual abilities in order to prepare them for Kindergarten. Biblical principals are emphasized where children learn to respect others, appreciate the world in which they live, and establish self-confidence. They leave preschool with a strong foundation on which to build their academic and spiritual future. More about our preschool can be found here.

Our School

We are dedicated to a student-centered program that promotes academic excellence through an enriched, interdisciplinary curriculum. We couple that with small class sizes and individualized instruction for a truly effective, engaging education.  Our teachers and staff are committed to supporting our students to ensure that each child reaches his or her fullest academic potential. Through weekly chapel and classroom Bible time, we promote Christ-centered living, as well as the development of each child‘s unique God-given gifts.

We invite you to visit our campus and discover the difference at ECSP.

Our programs offer rolling admissions. Please contact our office for admission information and to arrange for a tour.
