“Personalized instruction”

My son is currently in third grade at Effort Christian School. He has attended the school for five years. With smaller classroom sizes, the personalized instruction is excellent. He is challenged academically and continues to learn and grow. I am pleased with the quality of the instruction, the curricula used, and the talented, caring, and excellent teachers. I am also thankful he is able to receive solid Christian instruction and that biblical character qualities are modeled, taught, and enforced in…


Effort is one of the most affordable private schools in our area—tuition costs about one-third the amount private schools in Charlottesville charge. Meanwhile, the educational quality is excellent. Our kids get individualized attention from award-winning teachers and caring staff. We couldn’t be happier with Effort! – Melanie

“We made the right choice”

We looked at several other private and public schools in the Charlottesville and Fluvanna area. None in our opinion compared to ECSP!

“Amazing school and people”

Effort is full of wonderful people and minds, as we strive to fulfill our relationships with God. Lily, Seventh Grade

“Safe and fun environment”

I love Effort because it allows me to learn in a safe & fun environment. Because of its small classes and good teachers, I can have 1-on-1 time if I need it, and get help on anything. I chose Effort after trying out a couple of different schools. I would recommend Effort to anybody looking for an excellent Christian private school. Not only is the Bible taught on a daily basis, but it is also incorporated into most lessons. Effort…

“Excellent Teachers”

We started at Effort Christian School when my son was four years old and in pre-K. He is now​ in the seventh grade. During the years, each of my four children have been enrolled at Effort. We all love Effort! Effort’s Christ-centered focus has taught and continues to teach the values and morals that my family holds dear. We appreciate the smaller, more intimate class sizes that allow the kids to thrive and get the attention needed. Some of our favorite things about Effort are the…
