School Notes

We are committed to partnering with parents to provide their children a strong spiritual and educational foundation. A foundation which will inspire lifelong learning. Our licensed teachers are the reason an EHCA education is like no other. They are all disciple makers with a heart for God and His children. Each one is committed to making a difference in their students' lives.

Our Early Education program is a time of playing and making friends for your child. We know they will be developing large/fine motor skills, learning early literacy and foundational math skills and establishing relational and social skills through the research based curriculum. More importantly they will learn God made them, He loves them and Jesus wants to be their friend forever. Some features of the program include:
  • Full and half day offerings for preschool. Full day for pre-K. 
  • Spanish and Music & Movement enrichment classes.
EHCA's Elementary School builds a solid foundation for your child in the core subjects of Bible, Math, Science, Language Arts and Social Studies. All taught from a Biblical perspective so children grow in the knowledge of God and their relationship to Him. Some features of elementary school include:
  • Additional individualized math and reading programs allowing each child to progress at their own pace.
  • Spanish, Art, Music and PE enrichment classes.
Eastern Hill's Middle School prepares each student to be successful in high school and beyond. EHCA provides a support system of loving educators ready to disciple them through a time they are being exposed to new ideas and competing voices. Our passion for our students to be rooted in Scripture and growing in Christ is achieved by consistent biblical integration across all subject areas to provide a strong foundation of God's absolute truth. Some features of middle school include:
  • Core subjects in Bible, Math, Science, History, Language Arts and Social Studies.
  • Grade specific electives in Spanish, Science Triad and Speech & Debate.
  • Optional electives include Art, Music, and PE.
  • A math program allowing students to advance above grade level.
  • Student council
  • Competitive athletic program open to all EHCA students in grades 5-8.
Every student participates in our school's service ministry Do Something. They learn how to share God's love by serving others in practical ways through each Do Something project both on campus and in our local community.

Extended care is available to all students. 

In 2021-2022, over 70% of our families received tuition assistance in the form of discounts and need-based financial aid.

My two children, second grader and kindergartener, have been attending Eastern Hills since pre-school. Throughout these years, my love and faith in the community and the teachers of the school have only strengthened. The entire staff of the school has created a phenomenal educational program, a safe environment, and a culture where every child is cherished for who they are. In particular, my daughter, who has type one diabetes, has received the most incredible love and compassion in her care from the staff; everyone has showed infinite yearning to learn and provide her the medical care she needs. The small class sizes allow for teachers to give individualized attention to every child, allows them to grow and excel at their strengths, and engages parents for an inclusive environment. The administrator, Camille Miller, has a genuine passion for seeing every child grow in their faith and love to learn. This is the best faith-based, small school learning environment in Albuquerque.

We have 3 children at EHCA. We came to the school 8 years ago and our experience has been transformative. Our oldest has blossomed academically and socially, and our 2 youngest are thriving. The teachers are engaging and love the students. The academics are incredible and our children's standardized test scores are all above the 90th percentile across the board. Mrs. Miller is the heart of the school and knows every child and every family. The middle school is a hidden gem - the campus is wonderful and all the ugly issues one might associate with a typical middle school are non-existent. It's a blessing to see students in 5th-8th grade interacting, co-mingled at lunch tables, just generally friendly and happy kids. We highly recommend this school!

We transferred in from another school that claimed to have superior academics. We found, however, that our daughters are getting a better education at Eastern Hills and the teachers have a better understanding of each individual student and their needs. The principal is very involved with the day to day workings and each family. We couldn't be happier with our choice. My only complaint is it doesn't go through high school.
