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.


  • 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, Evan Lam, am a child of the Lord who heals. My spiritual gift of mercy stems from being homeschooled for the majority of my life. Weak in social skills, I didn’t talk much. But that made me observant, and allowed me to pick up on cues that told me how people were feeling. This enabled me to relate with other shy kids and be a friend. The spiritual gift of service that God has given me comes from my love of teamwork and skill of planning things out in my head; which I can thank years of playing chess for. For example, when we’re stuck on an assignment during a group project, I’ll try to see the bigger picture to help unstick us. Looking at my spiritual gifts, I can see myself being open to God to be used as a blessing and an available friend to others.
