Eastern Christian’s graduating class of 2016 is setting out on a mission of Kingdom building and cultural transformation, and they will do so at some of the most desireable colleges and universities in the country.
We are thrilled to announce that 98 percent of EC’s graduating seniors who applied to a four-year postsecondary institution were accepted! Our graduates received approximately 450 acceptances to 126 distinct colleges and universities. Nearly all of these students were offered college merit scholarships totaling over 4.5 million dollars! This scholarship total is the highest in Eastern Christian’s distinguished 124-year history, dethroning the previous record of 4.3 million set by the class of 2014. This is further evidence of how an Eastern Christian education can literally pay for itself.
As articulated in EC’s Graduate Profile, these recent alumni are prepared to be young men and women of Christian vision and influence, and are ready to contribute to God’s mission of renewing all of creation. We are so proud of you, graduates. May the Lord bless you abundantly as you begin this new season of your lives!
