Eastern Christian Elementary School

Tel: (973)427-4729
Grades: PK - 4 | 204 students
For over 120 years, Eastern Christian School (PK-12th grade) has been dedicated to educating and challenging young people for Christian life and service.
Education at Eastern Christian is distinctively different.
In the classroom, academics are taught from a Christian perspective, and teachers faithfully mentor students to become responsible stewards.
We provide a nurturing environment that encourages our pupils to recognize their gifts and develop their potential for service to God and their community.
Students are challenged to reflect and to ask themselves how academics, the arts, and athletics are preparing them for a life of service.
