HEAD OF SCHOOLS
Choosing Christian school is one of the most significant decisions you can make for your children. These are the most important years of your life, and we are honored that you and the Lord would consider allowing us to be part of them.
Our passion is twofold: 1) To lead young men and women of all ages and walks of life to a saving knowledge of the Lord, and to walk closer to Him each day, and 2) To provide these future leaders of our world with intellectual stimulation and experience so that they will be prepared to understand and compete with the leaders and scholars in this world and rise above, guarded with God’s truth. This is our mission. We see the fruit of this vision being carried out in selfless service to our community...local and global. ECS students have a place outside the halls of our schools where they see need, and work to alleviate that need in the name of Christ.
As the cornerstone of our program here, we have adopted the Scripture of Mark 12:30 to express our philosophy of education: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.”
Together we can impact families, our community and our world. “And whatever you do, in word or in deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” Eastside students: Learning to lead; leading to serve.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind and with all your strength. Mark 12:30
