Transfer Students

At Eastside Christian School, we understand that changing schools can be a difficult time of transition for young people. When a child enters K-8 during the academic year, we have programs in place to help welcome your child and make his or her initial time at ECS a positive and enjoyable experience. Like you, we want your child to be successful and love ECS, and the supports listed below help ensure a great start.

Elementary

  • Your child will be introduced and welcomed on the first day of class and paired with a student ambassador for the first week at ECS.
  • You will be introduced to your child’s Room Parent.
  • Two weeks after your child begins school, teachers will provide the Principal with feedback on your child’s adjustment to ECS.
  • The Principal will meet with the family within the first several weeks of school to address any questions/concerns about academics and student life.

Middle School

Middle-schoolers transferring to ECS mid-year will have the following additional supports (along with those listed above):

  • Your child’s mentor group leader will have regular check-ins with your child during the transition period to make sure things are going well both inside and outside of the classroom.
  • The Athletic Fee will be waived for your child’s first sport to encourage participation and help make peer connections.
  • I, Nick Miller, am a son of God. Through my time here at ECS I have become stronger in faith, and I have figured out what kind of person I am. God has given me the spiritual gifts of giving and of faith. One spiritual experience I have had was on a mission trip to Campbell Farm. We were all sitting around a giant camp fire worshiping, and I felt God in my life. One of my favorite things to do is to build a stronger relationship with friends and family. I love life and love being with friends and others. The kind of person I want to be is the one that people look to as an example and as a great friend.
