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 have been a part of Eastside Christian School since second grade. I have been through many things in my life, but this school brought out the best in me. My walk with God is still a work in progress, but I’m still able to learn so much more about Him. One of my many spiritual gifts is wisdom. I can provide guidance for those who struggle with a specific aspect in their life. If someone struggles with finances, I can give them financial advice. If someone needs help with their relationship, I can provide them relationship advice. I believe that God has given me this gift to help those who are in need. I also believe it is my job to help and serve the homeless. Providing shelter, food, and money can help the homeless until they get back on their feet. I want to thank all the teachers that have helped me on my journey to become a better scholar. You all have taught me the responsibility of school and how to be organized. I would also like to thank my parents for helping me in every aspect in my life ever since I was a little kid. Everything you’ve taught me through my life will not be in vain. I will show everyone that you have done an excellent job raising me. You always taught me to encourage myself and to never give up. I appreciate you for everything you’ve done for me in my life.
