EBCCS provides a safe, conducive learning environment that enriches the lives of the students on an academic and spiritual level. The philosophy of the school reflects the values and ideals of all those who have a vital part in the growth, development, and life of the school. The effectiveness of its philosophy is measured by the attitudes, behavior, and daily living of the students, parents, and faculty who have assimilated it. The philosophy of the school stresses the need for "community among people" as a basic strategy for students and faculty to value in coping with the perplexities and decisions of an ever-changing society.

The AmeriCorps Member(s) will be responsible to assist in the After-School Program via planning and implementation, direct student academic support, social-emotional learning, and overseeing recreational activities.
