Eastern Christian Class of 2016
United States Military Academy at West Point
What do you love about Eastern Christian School?
I love the friendships I have made here at EC and how I am able to share and build my faith with the other students. The teachers are friendly as well and work hard to help you succeed.
Describe one of your favorite teachers and tell why he/she is a favorite.
Mrs. Andrews, who teaches a several math classes at EC, is my favorite teacher because I know that she cares about me as an individual and wants me to succeed. She makes herself available before and after school whenever a student needs extra help with their work.
In what ways have you grown in your faith as a result of your experience at Eastern Christian School?
The weekly chapels, morning devotions, and Bible classes have all made me grow in my walk with Christ. Because my friends at EC have similar beliefs to mine, we are able to help each other along the way.
The Eastern Christian tagline is “Engaging. Nurturing. Transforming.” How did you experience an education that is engaging, nurturing and transforming at EC?
Eastern Christian has many unique, hands-on classes, such as in Robotics Class and Chemistry, which helps me learn in different ways. Also, the classes at EC always tie in a Christian perspective, which has allowed me to grow in my faith, as well.
How do you feel that EC prepared you for graduation, college and life?
EC has prepared me through athletics in teaching me about leadership and team unity. My experiences through the sports at EC have helped me build a stronger character. Also, the academic classes were challenging and have prepared me for what classes will be like in college.
What would you say to a high school student considering joining Eastern Christian School?
I would tell them that Eastern Christian is not like most schools because the teachers really care about you personally, and the students are friendly and inviting.
What opportunities did you experience at EC that you don’t think you would have gotten to experience anywhere else?
One aspect of EC that is unique and important to me is the small class sizes. Teachers are more able to help me individually and I can learn more efficiently along with other students.
What else do you appreciate about your time at Eastern Christian?
Another part of Eastern Christian that is important to me is the opportunities to grow as a leader, such as through baseball and through NHS and different clubs. The Bible & Worship class has also helped in this way because I am able to plan and organize the weekly chapels.
