Welcome from the Principal
Thank you for considering us as a possibility for your child’s school community for the coming year. We encourage you to discover who we are. As a Christian Pre-kindergarten through high school, our purpose is not just to present a Bible class to our students. Nor is it just to begin and end each day with devotions. Yes, it is those things too. But a Christian school encourages Christian living within its community. It teaches for Shalom. It teaches and models grace. It advocates that all of education is to be carried out inside a Christian framework, acknowledging that all of life is religion, that everything we do and say is under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, and that we as God’s people are to live responsible, God-glorifying lives. It means that we teach and learn about Mathematics, English, Science, and all the other host of glorious facets of God’s creation in that light, that they are integral parts of God’s creation, that we must use what we teach and learn for God’s glory and the expansion of God’s kingdom and to build each other up. We are to be Christ-like.
East Palmyra Christian School is just that, a Christian school, whose mission is “to offer a Christian educational alternative that integrates faith and learning through a Biblical worldview. We strive to equip our students to develop their gifts, to become discerning disciples, and joyfully serve God in their individual calling in their community and world.”
But it takes more than the Christian school to accomplish all of this. Through God’s grace, the home, the church, and the school must work together in a child’s education. Together we touch the lives of our children.
Thus we encourage parents to become part of their children’s education and we allow for much parent involvement at EPCS: volunteer in the classroom, in field trips, in fund-raisers, in playground monitoring, and in committees. EPCS is a Christian community in which all are invited to participate.
Come. Discover who we are!

East Palmyra Christian School Mission and Vision
Mission: To offer a Christian educational alternative that integrates faith and learning through a Biblical worldview. We strive to equip our students to develop their gifts, to become discerning disciples, and joyfully serve God in their individual callings in their community and world.
Vision: We are a Christian community that believes that God is the Lord of all creation and that God is revealed through both creation and God’s infallible written Word. We acknowledge that we are God’s unique image bearers.
As a Christian community, we seek to educate the whole child, fostering spiritual, emotional, physical, aesthetic, and intellectual development, and we seek to help each other discover our unique God-given gifts. We wish to nurture our students, and encourage each other, so that we together may be led to discover, celebrate and proclaim, both individually and communally, the restorative power of God’s work in all areas of life.
As a Christian community, we aim to provide a challenging and affirming learning environment which frees students to explore and examine all human endeavor within God’s creation from a Christian perspective, thereby developing their abilities to discern and respond to society.
As a Christian community, we encourage responsible citizenship by promoting and modeling social justice and stewardship through a variety of service opportunities in our campus life. We strive to provide knowledge, insight, and skills to equip our students to live lives of faithful and joyous service to God and neighbor.
