Welcome from the Principal

Greetings ECAC Families,

The first quarter was terrific! Thanks to our parents and students for a great start this year. We are excited to bring in the second quarter! So quickly, October has arrived; the leaves have turned, and preparations for the fall holidays are beginning. Before you know it, it will be time for winter coats and hats.

We aim to ensure that students graduate with a college or career plan. The class of 2025, our sophomores, will be attending the Career Techincal Education (CTE) fair on November 11, 2022, at Warrensville Heights High School. Students will learn about the CTE programs available to them as juniors. Please visit Heights Career Tech at for a list of CTE programs.

We are preparing students for the End of Course (EOC) exams. The EOCs will begin on December 7, 2022. Students required to take an EOC have an EOC prep class(es) in APEX to help them earn the competency score of 684 for the English language arts II and Algebra I tests. Competency is a graduation requirement for Ohio. Please see the attached handout for more information about Ohio's graduation requirements. Mrs. Christa Taorick, our guidance counselor, will notify students and parents of which EOC(s) the students have to take. Mr. Aaron Bubonics is the teacher for the EOC prep classes.

Last but not least, seniors who need a pathway to graduation will take RISE Up, a program that provides foundational employability skills to help them land jobs and advance in the retail industry. We are excited to offer this opportunity for our seniors to earn a 12-point industry credential.
