What do you love about Eastern Christian School?

The teaching staff at Eastern Christian has been extremely supportive of me in all my endeavors with both education and extracurriculars as well as putting the maximum effort into making sure I succeed as a student and person. Teachers at EC are so friendly, and I look forward to seeing them every day in class, and passing them in the hallway. I’m really going to miss them because I know that no other school that I attend in the future will have teachers even half as amazing as EC.

Describe one of your favorite teachers and tell why he/she is a favorite.

Mrs. Troast has taken countless hours out of her prep block to have meetings with me whenever I have questions on assignments or I start to fall behind on homework or tests. She makes learning history both engaging and fun, and more than any other person in my life has done her best to ensure my success in humanities and as a student.

In what ways have you grown in your faith as a result of your experience at Eastern Christian School?

By having the opportunity to publicly speak about Christ, and by having devotions every morning I’ve had the opportunity to meet so many amazing Christians outside of church and both grow more accepting as a person and to grow my faith with God.

In addition, I’ve also worked on chapel Tech for all 4 years of high school, and I’ve gotten to talk to and work with nearly every speaker and every member of the chapel band who has taken part in a service during my high school career. This gave me a unique opportunity to have conversations with people who love God and the Scriptures which has deeply impacted me.

How do you feel that EC prepared you for graduation, college/career and life?

The skills and education I received at Eastern Christian, as well as the respect, confidence, and morals which were reinforced in my life really prepared me to feel ready for college.

What opportunities did you experience at EC that you don’t think you would have gotten to experience anywhere else?

The grace and kindness which teachers and faculty show to the student body at EC is something I have never seen before and can only be compared to a family.

What would you say to a prospective student considering joining Eastern Christian School?

The student body and faculty at EC are second to none, and no matter what your circumstance, your peers and teachers will do their absolute best to support you and encourage you to continually be better.

What else would you like to share about your EC experience?

Coming in to Eastern Christian I had been homeschooled my whole life, so I had no friends and no schooling experience, but the student body and faculty accepted me with open arms and really made me feel comfortable and loved.
