Daniel & Donna Onove have 5 boys that attend(ed) Eastern Christian School. We asked them a few questions about their EC Experience.
What do you love about EC?
Eastern Christian provides a rigorous academic environment with a caring, competent staff. It is small enough to present a family atmosphere and yet large enough to offer a full range of extra curricular activities in the areas of athletics, drama, and technology. All of the teachers, administrators, and staff knew my children by name and took an interest in their present well being and prospects for future success.
Why did you choose Eastern Christian School for your children?
We chose Eastern Christian because we were looking for a school that offered engaging educational opportunities in a Christ-centered environment. We wanted to ensure that the school they attended would prepare them for the future they envisioned. We have not been disappointed. Our older boys secured generous college scholarships and are now safely ensconced in rewarding and promising professions. All were prepared by their experience at EC for the advanced education that followed high school.
In what ways have you seen your children grow in their faith as a result of their experience at Eastern Christian School?
Through their exposure to teachers, administrators, and staff who embody Biblical values, my children were presented with Christian role models who helped guide their path. Faith-based community service and regular Bible study also led them to grow in faith and commitment.
The Eastern Christian tagline is “Engaging. Nurturing. Transforming.” How does your child experience this at EC?
Eastern Christian has so many wonderful, caring, and committed teachers, staff, and administrators. It is through their nurturing that students are motivated to get involved in activities that engage their minds and spirits. And as they become more deeply involved in studying the Scriptures, praying, and worshiping, a transformation occurs that deepens their faith and leads them into a closer, more productive relationship with our Creator, and, by extension, those within their sphere of influence.
What would you tell another parent to encourage them to consider enrolling their child at Eastern Christian School?
If you are looking for a school where each child is important, where teachers, administrators, and staff take an active interest in their students’ well being, where rigorous coursework will prepare your son or daughter for the challenges of the future, where enduring friendships are made, and where a Christ-centered education is a priority, then you must consider enrolling your child at Eastern Christian.
