The philosophy of our approach remains that a nurturing, supportive educational environment can provide appropriate academic and emotional experiences for each student through a system of ongoing analysis of the individual's needs, strengths, interests and weaknesses. This is accomplished with a staff that is dedicated and committed to student achievement and students who are receptive and willing to challenge themselves every day.
The mission of EHS & ECA is to provide a safe and appropriate learning environment that encourages students to take risks as they identify goals and develop values. Students at EHS & ECA can trust themselves to take responsibility for their personal growth developing positive principles; of respect, originality, diversity, tolerance, acceptance, resourcefulness, self-reliance, personal responsibility and accountability to become productive members of society. Preparing for post-secondary education, transitioning into the ever-changing workforce and earning a diploma will be symbols of this success.
