Emerald Heights Academy is a stand out! There is truely no other school that proivdes an all round program that caters to the full potential of the child. It's a pity it doesn't have a High School.

The formation that the children are getting at EHA is phenomenal. I look at my daughter who is kind, charitable, highly intelligent, happy, and so well-adjusted and confident and I know I can thank EHA for it. High academic standards, with character formation. The children begin public speaking in preschool. The Spanish, music, and technology programs keep even the youngest children far ahead of their peers in other schools. Finally, a school that teaches what I want reinforced from home. High character. We are thrilled with this school. The very small class size gives the children the individual attention they deserve.

This is an amazing school. You could not find a lower student/teacher ratio, a better academic program, or a better character building environment for any child. We are thrilled with this school.

Without a doubt Emerald Heights is the best kept secret on the Eastside! High academics, strong moral character building, year round virtue programs, small friendly classrooms.

The only way private schools can build their financial security is through gifts. Major gifts offer proof of how deeply many donors feel about their private schools. Their munificence is a wonderful example to others.
