The costs of education at a private school are significant. Parents are requested to become members five years prior to having children attend ECHS. Pre-support spreads out the cost of ECHS tuition over five additional years to make fees approximately 25% lower when children are attending ECHS. The pre-support payments start for families planning to attend ECHS when the eldest child enters grade 4. Parents can also choose to sign an agreement with the school and pay a lump sum when their oldest starts grade 9.
