Excel Christian Academy was founded in 1993 as an extension of the Cartersville Church of God. Originally the church and school occupied the same property on  Old Mill Road. The church moved to become the Church at Liberty Square off of Highway 411 and the academy continued to function at the Old Mill Road location. In 2016, the academy separated from the church under its own board.  In 2018, Excel Christian Academy purchased the former Emerson Elementary School at 54 7th Street and moved operations to this location.


Research on this school is incomplete.
