Welcome to El Camino Academy's website which has been created to reflect what Christ is doing in our corner of the world and to give information which will help others to be involved in prayer, service, and participation in our community life. We welcome former, current, and future students, teachers, family members, and friends to join us in celebrating the work God is doing IN and THROUGH El Camino Academy (ECA) in Bogotá, Colombia.


Virtual Day

Virtual Day is coming soon! Fri, Nov 28 is scheduled for students to do all their schoolwork on the computer. Access to the lessons should be available all next week for those who want to get an early start. The time required to do the work should equal one full school day: about 45 minutes per class, plus a little bit extra for homework time. Make sure to schedule time for breaks and lunch too!


The Giving Place

Open Fri, Dec 5, The Giving Place is our special ECA Christmas store where students can buy and wrap gifts at reduced prices for the ministry children we serve. We have more than 300 children and adolescents to buy presents for, and gift prices range between $10.000 and $13.000. Students are encouraged to buy more than one gift, if possible. If buyers end up having extra money left over, there will be a decorated box to receive gifts toward this spring’s Amazon trip!
We need parents to volunteer to help run the store and the wrapping station. The schedule is from 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and lunch will be provided. Contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to be a part of this unique Christmas campaign.


Round Table / Forum: Relationships between Parents and Children

The workshops by ECA Psychologist Adriana Aguilera on how the relationship between parents affects their children's development was a real success. To continue the benefits and further participation, we're inviting all parents, but especially those who attended the workshops, to a round table discussion to talk more about this important issue. Plan to join us on Fri, Dec 12 at 2:00 pm, then stay for the Christmas Program. If pico y placa is an issue, consider coming to the other round table on Mon, Dec 15 from 7:45 to 9:30a.


ECA Christmas Festival

Christmas Through Your Senses

Reserve Fri, Dec 12, to share Christmas with the ECA community! This year’s celebration focuses on the sights, sounds, tastes, and smells of Christmas, and will have a completely different format from other years’ programs. This festival will also be the kick-off for the Amazon outreach team. There will be Christmas activities for students and parents, student presentations, a Christmas carol sing-along, Christmas food, and lots more!
Students will stay at school after dismissal instead of going home. From 3:00-4:00, secondary students will be getting things ready and elementary students will have supervised activities. The celebration begins at 4:00, when the Christmas booths open for parents, extended family members and students to enjoy, and student presentations will begin at 5:00 with our youngest students, and the HS presentation should begin around 7:00. Students can go home with their parents after their presentations. We look forward to celebrating together as a community!


Christmas Stockings for Staff

If you would like to bless our ECA non-academic staff with a small Christmas gift, note or treat to thank them for their great support year-round, send it to Martha Ortiz in Events. The 35 stockings (23 ladies and 12 men) will be delivered Wednesday afternoon, Dec 17.
