We have been a part of the EC community since 2019. It has been so welcoming, nurturing, and safe for our 3 children. Student security with a Biblical worldview setting is a top priority and is evident through the teachers and staff. Weekly chapels build community amongst the students, teachers, and parents. I continue to be impressed by EC's quality of technology and programming on campus. When all parties work towards the main vision, the result is Eastern Christian School. We are very happy here.

We are so thankful for Eastern Christians. It is a happy and safe place for my children in every sense of the word. I never worry about what they will see or hear, whether that be from the curriculum or their friends. They receive an amazing well-rounded education with an array of extracurricular activities to choose from. But most importantly, I know everyone there has my children`s best interests in mind and is not only there to teach them academics but to pray for them and help expand their Christian worldview.

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!

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!
