I was put into classes that challenged me, which was good. Having so many clubs is nice as well. I also appreciate having so many opportunities to have honors classes...

Why did you ultimately decide to come to EC?
While on a tour, I went to chapel here. I was there for maybe two minutes, and I was like, this is it. I found it. It feels like home. I had spent days trying to figure it out, and I walked out of chapel and in that moment, I thought that’s the school.

The community was so welcoming. And the school was strong in its faith and I could tell that from when I walked in. And the fact that every class was taught from a biblical worldview just drew me in because I wanted to understand how that works. That’s what made me want to come here.

What do you most appreciate about EC?
I appreciate that everyone works well together and no one is left out in any situation. In those situations, it shows how they are strong in their faith, and they are strong in being loving toward one another and caring about each other.

I was put into classes that challenged me, which was good. Having so many clubs is nice as well. I also appreciate having so many opportunities to have honors classes, as I am in two this semester. It has been a great change in my life that has opened more doors of opportunity.

What would you say to students currently looking to join EC as a freshman?
The instant that you walk in, there is someone to greet you. And every time you walk in, there’s a new face and a welcoming face, and they want to get to know you. They want to welcome you in and they want to see someone come and join their community.

It’s been amazing. There are so many spirit-led staff members here. I really love everything about this school.

How has your experience at EC been so far?
It has been a good one. I have found a lot of friends. I feel like I’m cared for and it is just a fun atmosphere in general. I was formerly at a small, private school in New York.

Why did you start looking at EC?
I wanted a tight-knit community. I wanted to have a place where everyone had faith in common. I feel like Eastern Christian does a really good job of putting their faith into everything. Everywhere you look in this school, there is some aspect of faith and Christianity.

Why did you ultimately decide to come to EC?
The more I looked into it, the more EC kept on proving itself. It aligned with everything I wanted. It felt like the perfect community; it just felt right. And even in the process of getting into the school, the staff proved how caring they were. They were attentive and they care about each student individually.

What do you most appreciate about EC?
Everybody gives everybody a chance. We all have faith in common. It’s like a big family. They don’t see students as numbers. They see them individually.

I also feel they have good opportunities for career development. This is the most ‘career and college-preparation school’ that I’ve seen. They are doing everything to prepare students for every possible career you can imagine. I like how everyone in this school is a future thinker, trying to prepare you. The WINGS program, that’s so good. I am so excited to get into that.

What would you say to students currently looking to join EC as a freshman?
If you are trying to find a school that will make you feel welcome, EC is the best place that you can find. Everyone has their place here. There are so many different SOARS and clubs here. Everyone has their niche.

We feel so blessed to be part of a Christ-centered learning community. We can’t count the number of times we reflect on how EC reinforces positive values for our daughter. (We truly feel the home, church and school are connected.) She comes home each day and shares her “EC adventures” with us and her little brother. He’s so excited to start this year. At EC we feel confident leaving our most precious gifts with teachers, staff, and volunteers who care about all aspects of their development. We also really appreciate the PTO and striving to foster community amongst the parents.

Our daughter started PK4 this school year, and our experience has been nothing short of amazing! From academics to nurturing her spiritual growth, we could not be happier to see our child loving each day in PK. She has learned so much, made new friends, and loves each of her teachers. It's a true testament of how a school should come alongside a child and nurture so many aspects that make up their whole person. We LOVE EC!

I am so blessed to have the opportunity to return to EC and share my three loves -- love of God, love of teaching and love of children. What an incredible opportunity to be part of a school that holds both academic excellence and biblical truth in such high regard.

Having been a student at Eastern Christian, I know first hand the impact that a Christian school teacher can have on a student’s life. I will forever be grateful to my middle school science teacher. Although I may not remember any of her lessons, I clearly remember the impact she had on my life. I am so blessed to have the opportunity to return to EC and share my three loves — love of God, love of teaching and love of children. What an incredible opportunity to be part of a school that holds both academic excellence and biblical truth in such high regard. 

For everyone who values a Christ centered education for their children, EC is a good place for you. Here you get to partner with the school in raising a generation of children who are bold in declaring their faith and living godly lives.

What do you love about EC?

We love the fact that our children get to hear about God everyday at school. The bible instructs us in Deuteronomy 6:7 to teach the word of God to our children when we sit at home and when we walk along the road, when we lie down and when we get up. Since they spend about seven hours at school each day, we are grateful that they do not miss out on hearing God’s word during this period. Our faith and love for God as a community also unifies us and this helps to bridge cultural differences. We have been blessed with genuine friends.

Why did you choose Eastern Christian School for your children?

  • We believe in partnering with the Church and School to raise godly children and EC offered that partnership
  • Impressive physical structure with boldly written bible verses
  • More diverse environment than the public school setting we were in at the time
  • Supportive staff
  • Warm environment where authentic family relationships can be built

In what ways have you seen your children grow in their faith as a result of their experience at Eastern Christian School?

Our children love music and enjoy learning new Christian songs at school. They also love learning new bible verses. The opportunity to come together for chapel every week has taught them that worshipping God is continuous and not a Sunday affair. They are also learning to view things from a Godly perspective as this is emphasized in the subjects taught.

What would you tell another parent to encourage them to consider enrolling their child at Eastern Christian School?

We were raised in an environment where belief in God was taught in schools. Unfortunately, this is not the case in our culture now. For everyone who values a Christ centered education for their children, EC is a good place for you. Here you get to partner with the school in raising a generation of children who are bold in declaring their faith and living godly lives.

See what a Christ-centered education looks like for your child.
