At Eastern Christian High School, we recently welcomed over 90 eighth grade students as part of our annual High School Preview Day.
We were very excited to see all of EC’s current 8th grade class as well as many visitors from other schools in the area. Many EC eighth grade students were surprised to learn that we gain so many new students every year in 9th grade that their class size will likely double coming into high school in the fall of 2016! Mustard Seed School and Dawn Treader Christian School 8th graders also joined us for the opportunity to explore continuing their Christian education at EC!
Visiting students had the opportunity to shadow high school students for a class period of the day to get a better understanding of what classes will be like as high school students.
Students and parents joined the entire high school student body and faculty in a time of worship with the student-led EC Chapel Praise Team. EC’s own publications teacher Mrs. Genuario spoke on Isaiah 6.
The annual extra-curricular fair remains a student favorite. It’s an opportunity to see the many activities that students at ECHS plug into. 8th graders were allowed to engage with over 30 of these activities and even sign up for these events in 2017-18.
Our eighth grade guests were invited to a meal in the cafeteria, and wrapped up the day with a big group shot in their brand new “Soar Like Eagles” Under Armor t-shirts!
Thanks to all the high school student hosts and extra curricular fair guides, our great HS faculty, and to all of the students and parents who came to visit. We had an amazing time, and we look forward to welcoming in the class of 2021 next fall!
