What the school says

"Established in 2005, Eagle Creek Academy is a private school for preschool to 5th-grade students. Recognising that each child is an individual, we believe that our small class sizes and customised learning groups allow children to be challenged right where they need it."


"We offer children a steady stream of guided lessons using our years of best practices and internationally recognised curriculum such as Math in Focus.

"We also know that children are natural learners and need opportunities to use their hands, get out of their seats and work in groups. Eagle Creek students often learn in action with their friends on child-led projects. 

"At Eagle Creek, all children have the opportunity to do maths grade level or beyond. Sometimes, we have higher maths groups within a classroom, and sometimes we invite children to join the next grade up."


Tuition fees for the 2023/2024 academic year range from USD 4,120 for toddlers and preschool to USD 14,660 for kindergarten through to 5th grade. Fees are payable monthly, semi-annually or annually. 

There is also a one-time application fee of USD 225. 

From the headmaster

"Over the years, Eagle Creek has thrived by hiring experienced teachers and working with children in very small groups. ECA families love that we know their children well and plan our lessons just for them.
"At the toddler and preschool level, our goal is to find the perfect balance between work and play. We want the children to wake up eager to come to school, and we want them to learn the reading, writing and maths skills that will help them soar in kindergarten. Most importantly, our teachers adore little kids and enjoy spending time with them. Love, I think, is the best teacher.
"For kindergarten through fifth grade, Eagle Creek's teachers are masters at combining fun experiences and strong academics. Children like coming to school when they get to do experiments and work on projects. They also appreciate how well we key into their passions. At these ages, recognising children's strengths and building their self-confidence is the route to rigorous learning. 
"Because we are serious about preparing children for an increasingly globalised world, we are always using the latest technology. This includes 3D printers, green screens, coding lessons and many other exciting opportunities.
"One priority is to keep Eagle Creek as diverse as possible. This means enrolling children of all nationalities, religions, cultures, income levels, ability levels and so on. I love visiting a classroom when a parent is sharing his or her family heritage with the children.

"Interestingly, although we do not "teach to the test" in all grade levels, our students consistently achieve well above the national average on the NWEA standardised test. This is one indicator that our methods work.
"Here at Eagle Creek, we believe in children and where they are going. The result is excellent instruction and guidance that you can believe in."

– Cathy Hammond, Founder

From the parents

"The teachers at Eagle Creek Academy have inspired our kids and pushed them to be the best they can be academically and personally. We have been part of the Eagle Creek family for eight years and can confidently say that the friends we have made (kids and parents alike) will be lifelong friends."

– Mrs DiMeglio

"Eagle Creek Academy has helped my son develop a sense of self-confidence through continually adjusting the lessons to challenge him in his reading group. Since the teacher-to-student ratios are so good, the teachers can quickly make those adjustments. From the teachers to the administrative level, everyone is dedicated, open and helpful. I am so happy to have found Eagle Creek!"

– Mrs Howlett

"We appreciate the small class sizes, and we are 100 percent satisfied with the high-quality curriculum, the teachers' positive attitude, and the variety of learning activities. The kindergarten teachers are amazing. They are attentive, energetic and helpful, and they tailor each child's learning path, giving individualised attention to each child. We recommend Eagle Creek Academy to every family out there. It is the best of the best!"

– Mr Carter
