EC has been an amazing experience for our three kids who have experienced both the middle school and high school setting. The values and focus on community giving, social responsibility and academic excellence have prepared our kids for a bright future. We highly recommend EC to any prospective parent and student considering EC and have been more than pleased with the culture and experience our kids benefitted from being a part of such a wonderful community.

You can't beat Eastside Catholic's college prep and student atmosphere. There are plenty of AP and Honors offerings and students can choose which ones they want to take. The kids are inclusive to everyone - no matter what friend group you're in, you're accepted by everyone. These kids work hard, but lift each other up and have fun.
