School Notes:

  • East Richland Christian Schools is a ministry of East Richland Evangelical Friends Church and is the result of the merger of the former New Convenant Academy and Faith Community Christian High School. These two schools have provided an excellent source of Christian education for students in the Ohio Valley for a combined total of 35+ years. In the fall of 2009, we opened our doors as a merged Pre-K through 12th grade program that provides a strong continuous educational opportunity for our students.

School Reviews

As a parent of a graduate of this school I would highly recommend it. Our child graduated with a solid academic education as well being spiritually grounded. All of the teachers and staff are qualified state certified instructors who care about their students. Our son was admitted into the college of his choice and achieved outstanding results on his college entrance exams. He has recently graduated with a 4 year degree and had a very good job waiting for him upon graduation. I wouldl give this school five***** stars out of five.
