Favorite Restaurant: Jaco’s and Bonelli’s

Who Inspires Me: My parents! They had no clue about the American culture, but came to the USA and made it happen. They were able to give me and my brother a beautiful life, send us to a Christian school, and enforced good morals and teachings. They faced a lot, but continued to be positive and encouraging for us to be great. Now we pass that on to our children.

Hidden Talents: I wish I had some talents!! Definitely would love to paint/draw, sing, run…but cooking/baking would be my only talents!

Other than the Bible, everyone should read: Move Your Bus

What I love about EHCS: My students!! Especially the wild and crazy ones, they have the best personalities and creativity. Seriously, EHCS feels like home! When you have no family around, EHCS staff, students, and parents make you feel like “you matter”!

Board of Directors

It is our great honor to welcome you to East Hill Christian School and invite you to get to know our diverse and lively community. Nothing will compare to experiencing our campus and meeting with our faculty and students, but our website will give you an introduction to our distinctive programs, including our academics, athletics, arts and leadership.

The foundation of everything we do here at East Hill Christian is with our mission in mind, “to educate students morally, intellectually, and physically, based on the Word of God, in a loving, Christian environment.” Our faculty challenges our students to become life-long learners. We do not want to teach our students what to think, but how to think. We strive to help them develop intellectual curiosities and find their passions. Our college-prep program educates our students in a way that they can enter into the most successful universities and careers and speak confidently. Our goal is to develop their faith in a way that they can not only be effective participants in their church communities, but also be meaningful contributors to their communities and the world.

Here at East Hill Christian School, we do not want to just educate our students but also empower them to be leaders. Our students gain a wide variety of leadership experiences through athletics, student government, student leadership, the Chick-fil-a leadership academy and community service. It is important that we instill in every one of our students the importance of being the hands and feet of Jesus. Christ was the greatest example of servant leadership and we want every graduate to be empowered to serve like Christ.

Lastly, our aim is to elevate everyone that walks the halls of EHCS. Elevating our students begins with building strong relationships with each member of our community. Our faculty and staff take time to actively listen to our students, recognize their efforts and talents, and celebrate their successes. We celebrate each child and the uniqueness that they bring to our community.

East Hill Christian is an incredibly special place, and we want to invite you to come and experience it for yourself. It won’t take long to understand why are students, teachers and parents love the East Hill family. We welcome you to come to campus, so we can share with you exactly what we love about East Hill Christian!

Blessings,
