  • 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 Christian teachers faithfully mentor students of committed Christian families to become responsible stewards.
  • We provide a nurturing environment that encourages our pupils to recognize their individual 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 that will transform the world for Christ.
  • Eastern Christian School has been named a National School District of Character.

When our family moved to northern NJ from Chicago years ago, we wanted to make sure that our children had a great Christian education that didn't limit them academically. THAT is what we found at EC. As a P-12 Christian School system, there are many advantages in the curriculum and resources that our kids have. Great academics taught by loving Christian teachers who model amazing character for our kids. It's everything that we had hoped our school could be!

As a parent I am so grateful for the quality of education and the loving, caring way that my children are being taught at Eastern Christian Elementary School. The principal and teachers genuinely take an interest in each child and family. The school also offers a wide range of extracurricular activities and has quality music and art programs available.

Eastern Christian Elementary School is one of North Jersey's best kept secrets! The classes are small and the teachers are awesome! Our faith and beliefs are integrated into the classroom and equal emphasis is placed on the character development of the child, which we have seen carry over into our home. The teachers are so warm and caring, they really go the extra mile to ensure that my children are learning and involved. I love EC and would not want my children to go anywhere else!
