Mission Statement: Eastwood Christian School seeks to glorify God by providing a Christ-centered, biblically-based, classical education that instills a love for God, a desire to advance His Kingdom, and a passion for lifelong learning.
The Objective: An education centered on Truth prepares students to think properly about the world. ECS believes our students are not machines to be programmed, but creatures made in the image of God whose minds must be cultivated to reach their potential. To this end we challenge students with the great ideas of history and help them to evaluate these ideas in the light of God’s Word. We help them to see that all subjects are a theology of sorts as they reveal to us the glory of our Creator. Employing the time- tested educational methods that have shaped Western culture, we rigorously train students in logic and rhetoric so that they may discover God’s beauty, truth and goodness in math, history, science, language, literature and art.
The Trivium: Keys to Higher Learning: A classical education trains the mind to think well, equipping students to understand and adapt to an unpredictable future. Eastwood Christian School uses the classical model to teach students to recognize, understand and articulate the Truth, developing thinking, articulate students. The foundations of an ECS education prepare our graduates for any future to which God calls them. The stages of the Classical model mirror the development of the human mind as it assimilates facts, links them together logically, and then presents them beautifully. This process has historically been known as the “Trivium,” as it focuses on the three keys to higher learning– grammar, logic and rhetoric.
Athletic Programs:  At Eastwood, we believe the playing field offers the important opportunity to put into action discipline, perseverance, responsibility, commitment, love for our neighbor. We partner with parents and coaches to develop character in the crucible of competition. Our athletic program includes volleyball, basketball, cross country, tennis, and baseball.
Fine Arts Program: Ideas have consequences, and nowhere is the influence of ideas better seen than in the arts. Our goal in teaching fine arts is to equip students with the ability to recognize beauty, truth and goodness presented in the arts.  Music and art classes are part of the upper school curriculum and are also made available through after school classes. Students have opportunities for oral presentation and performance by participating in our spring drama program, as well as giving recitations at events such as “Shakespeare in the Park.” As part of their academic requirements for graduation, each senior delivers a speech to students, faculty, and parents.
Extracurricular Activities: Drama Club, SGA, Beta Club, French and Spanish Club, Yearbook, FCA.
College Awards/ Scholarships: Graduates from ECS are accepted to a variety of competitive colleges and universities, and each year students are awarded generous scholarships to those institutions. Since opening in 1996, Eastwood students have matriculated to over 35 public, private, and military colleges and universities. The ECS Class of 2019, with only 24 members, achieved acceptance to 21 colleges and were awarded over $1.1 million in scholarships.
