Ecclesia College Supports Homeschooling.
Homeschooling Links for Arkansas

Ecclesia College is located in the northwest corner
of Arkansas, about two hours from Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Northwest Arkansas is home to the headquarters of
Walmart, Tyson Foods, and J. B. Hunt.


Ecclesia College has a special heart for Christian homeschoolers.  A significant number of our faculty and staff homeschool their children, including College President, Oren Paris III.  Since 2008, we have hosted Ecclesia Prep, which offers elective classes and activities to supplement the curriculum of homeschool families in the Northwest Arkansas area.
Here at Ecclesia we believe that all truth is God’s truth and Biblically consistent, including theology, the arts, sciences, etc., and should, therefore, be mutually integrated with the principle approach to education from the Biblical perspective.  You may click here to view the entire Educational Philosophy.


The vast majority of Christian homeschool families have made the intentional choice to live on a single income in order to focus on God's imperative to "train up a child..."  Because of this the scholarship and work learning opportunities at Ecclesia College can be of particular benefit to homeschoolers.
Ecclesia College has abandoned "old school" limitations.  While higher education prices sky-rocket all over the nation, this unique institution is committed to make a high-quality, Christ-centered education possible to all qualifying students.
Ecclesia consistently offers scholarships (some partial, some full) to 100% of its student body while maintaining rigorous academic and work learning programs.

A Note From Twila Paris

Dear Homeschool Student,

Twila ParisI know you must be deeply grateful to your parents for their commitment to providing a Christ-centered education for you.  I believe it will positively affect your ability to find and fulfill God’s calling on your life.  My husband and I have also chosen to homeschool our son.

Soon you will be entering a new phase of your education, and you have a big decision to make—where to attend college.  As you weigh your many options, I invite you to consider Ecclesia College.

Ecclesia is a work learning college, which, along with financial aid and deep scholarships, enables the institution to offer private, Christ-centered higher education for the same (or lower) out-of-pocket costs as a secular state school.  Along with high academic standards, they also place a heavy emphasis on discipleship, Christian mentoring, and a Biblical foundation for learning. As you may know, the word  “Ecclesia” is Greek for “called out ones”.  

Because Ecclesia is a small and friendly school, determined to prepare students to stand firm in their faith and truly be salt and light in their chosen fields of vocation, it has proven to be an ideal choice for a growing number of homeschoolers.

Wherever God leads you, I pray for and expect great things as you continue to grow in following Him.

Twila Paris serves as a member of the Ecclesia College Board of Regents, along withDavid BartonEric Metaxas, and other Christian leaders.

Kale McClarty
Congratulations to Northwest Arkansas homeschooler, Kale McClarty who won first place in the first round of the Rotary 4 Way Test Speech Contest!
Kale presented his poignant speech titled “True Love“ before approximately 150 Northwest Arkansas professional and community leaders, and made an impression as a thoughtful young Christian, convinced by faith that Jesus demonstrated the ultimate proof of love and service when he laid down His life for us. Beautifully executed, and with the backdrop of the Rotary Club’s purpose—providing loving service to local communities—Kale’s talk was well-received.
Jennifer Hutchins, who teaches English at Ecclesia College and Ecclesia Prep, coached Kale and celebrated his victory along with his fellow Prep students. (Ecclesia Prep is a service of Ecclesia College, offering classes and activities to area homeschoolers.) Pictured above are Jennifer Hutchins, Kale McClarty and Oren Paris III, President of Ecclesia College. Kale will be competing in the next level of the competition on February 27th at the University of Arkansas.
Special recognition goes to 2nd place winner, Payton Hanby and 3rd place winner, Abby Rice. Springdale professional leaders involved in the facilitation of the Rotary 4 Way Test Speech Contest include Rotary President, Rolf Wilkin, Contest Co-chairs, Oren Paris III and Julie Olsen, HarBer speech coach, Ta-Neisha Marshall, and SHS sponsor, Cliff Langford.
