Eastern Christian High School

Tel: (973)427-0900
Grades: 9 - 12 | 349 students
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.
Our mission is to provide an excellent academic education within the context of a Christian world and life view, in a culturally diverse and caring environment for the children of Christian families.

School Reviews

As a parent I am impressed by the PA and Humanities programs Eastern Christian High School offers. My daughter will graduate next year with 17 college credits. Excellent academic options in a Christ centered learning environment. Would highly recommend.
