Eastern Christian really started me on my walk with God. I feel that my faith has deepened greatly since attending this school and I know I will continue down God’s path for me in the future thanks to EC.

What do you love about Eastern Christian School?
Eastern Christian has a great environment that really nurtures student learning. From my experience, every teacher is ready to go above and beyond for any student that may be struggling. I also enjoy the close knit community of Eastern Christian and how easy it is to see God’s work being done.

Describe one of your favorite teachers and tell why he/she is a favorite.
My favorite teacher would have to be Mr. Apol. He is not only very knowledgeable about the history that he teaches but he also challenges students to think differently about the world around them. He consistently models his Christian faith and is never afraid to “tell it like it is”.

In what ways have you grown in your faith as a result of your experience at Eastern Christian School?
Eastern Christian really started me on my walk with God. I feel that my faith has deepened greatly since attending this school and I know I will continue down God’s path for me in the future thanks to EC.

The Eastern Christian tagline is “Engaging. Nurturing. Transforming.” How did you experience an education that is engaging, nurturing and transforming at EC?
EC engaged me to think about the world through a Christ centered perspective, nurtured my faith and education, and transformed me to be able to go out into the world with faith and confidence.

How do you feel that EC prepared you for graduation, college and life?
EC teachers have always been honest about what colleges expect from students and have geared our education toward doing the best that we can. Additionally, the people in the college and career office have been extremely helpful in helping myself and other students navigate the process of applying to colleges.

What would you say to a high school student considering joining Eastern Christian School?
I would tell that student that they are fortunate to have found EC because of the great learning environment.

What opportunities did you experience at EC that you don’t think you would have gotten to experience anywhere else?
The close knit and spiritual driven environment I feel is really unique to EC. There isn’t as much of a disconnect between faculty in students that you may find in other schools.
