Ezell-Harding’s upper school curriculum is designed not only to motivate our students to meet their academic goals, but to also encourage them to become spiritual examples for future generations. College preparatory classes, daily Bible study, motivating chapel programs, and extracurricular activities prepare our students with lifetime skills. Besides meeting all of the state standards, our course offerings also include honors and Advanced Placement classes. Approximately 96% of our high school graduates enroll in a four year college program, with an average of 86% of our students qualifying for the Tennessee Hope Scholarship. Many graduates receive additional scholarships that include Presidential, Trustee, Dean, Merit, and Athletic awards. Each year Ezell-Harding Christian School averages 1-2 National Merit Scholars, 1-3 National Merit Commended Scholars, high placement in different subject areas at the Beta Conventions, and the Academic Quiz Bowl Team continues to excel each year on both the State and National level. Most importantly, a Christian education at EHCS provides valuable spiritual growth, giving students the foundation to meet some of life’s most difficult challenges.
Beyond the Classroom
Faith is the cornerston of Ezell-Harding Christian School. Each class is taught with a Christian worldview and eternal perspective. Whether raking leaves for an elderly couple, spending their own money to buy Christmas gifts for inner-city children, giving blood, or travling on a weeklong mission to Honduras, our students see beyond themselves and focus on how they can be the hands and feet of Christ by serving others.
A curriculum that encourages critical and analytical thinking prepares studenst for college and builds skills to become life-long learners. With an average ACT score of 25, millions of dollars in scholarships, a 96% college placement rate, opporunities for college credit, and a champion quiz bowl team, EHCS had consistently proven it's academic excellence.
Apart from the learning that takes place int he classroom, on the field, or on the stage, many students choose to participate in programs that extend well beyond the walls of EHCS. Educational trips each spring break offer travel to Central America and Europe. These trips allow participants to experience culture, history, biology, and world events in a way no textbook could ever capture.
