Founded in 1892, parent controlled Eastern Christian School provides Christ centered education to over 800 students each year at our three campus locations in Bergen and Passaic Counties. Each campus has an excellent Media Center, up-to-date technology, specially designed fine arts and music rooms, and spacious gymnasiums and athletic fields. The school receives substantial support from local churches, businesses, parents & alumni.
