Eden Building Project Included in TRIB Article

Building projects, tech upgrades and more set for North Hills area private, parochial schools
Eden Christian Academy is in the process of constructing a 27,000-square-foot academic building at its campus in Ohio Township, which serves students in grades seven through 12. The non-denominational evangelical Christian school also has grade-school campuses in Ross and Pine.

“We're not building because we want to have a new building. We're doing this because we we're running out of space,” said Tom Hughes, the head of school. Hughes noted that the pupil population, which draws from more than 100 churches, has increased from 590 to 640 since 2011. 

Once completed, the new building will provide additional classrooms, science labs, a cafeteria and a media center. In addition to expanding the use of technology for students and teachers, Eden is continuing to develop a partnership with the University of Pittsburgh in which juniors and seniors can earn college credit.

“Last school year we began offering a college in high school program for chemistry,” Hughes said. “This year we're adding a Spanish program.”

Eden teachers train at Pitt and then teach the university's curriculum to students at the high school campus. Students who participated in the chemistry program also had the opportunity to take labs at the Oakland campus. Classes started Aug. 24. More details,edenchristianacademy.org.

Eden Christian's Snavely makes her mark at Southeastern

Sept. 19, 2016

Eden Christian graduate Jenna Snavely expects a late start to help her as a freshman on the Southeastern University women's cross country team this fall.

Snavely, 18, of Mars did not take up cross country until she was a sophomore in high school, and was not serious about it until the following season.

“She comes from a solid high school program, but wasn't over-trained,” Southeastern coach Paul Kurtz said. “I see her moving up our roster as every year goes by and, before long, being one of our top runners.”

Snavely finished 21st at the 2015 WPIAL Class A championship meet, 60 places better than the previous season. She helped the Warriors to fifth place and qualified for the PIAA championship. She was 122nd in the WPIAL in her first season, in 2013.

Eden Christian Academy Awarded 2015 McDonald's MAC Grant

Eden Christian Academy received a 2015 McDonald's MAC Grant for $500.  The MAC Grants program, an initiative sponsored by local McDonald's Owner/Operators, is designed to help Make Activities Count for our students.  The cash award was donated to help Eden provide meaningful, hands-on activities to enhance the learning process for our students. 
McDonalds received hundreds of MAC Grant applications and the judging process was truly a challenge.  A committee of educators, business professionals and McDonald's representatives found Eden's submission to be among the "cream of the crop".  The grant funds will cover roughly half the cost of a science kit on motion and design to support hands-on activities for our fifth graders.

Jumping for Heart, Fun, and Good Health at Eden’s Berkeley Hills

 
Best jump rope year yet!  2015 was Eden’s third year to participate in Jump Rope for Heart. 
 
72 students were involved, collecting over $5,550 for the American Heart Association, which amounts to more than $10,000 in three years.  Prior to the actual day of the rope jumping event, Eden students enthusiastically raised funds and learned how to maintain a healthy heart by focusing on diet, exercise, abstinence from smoking, drinking plenty of water, and other important lifestyle habits. On a personal note this year, attending the Berkeley Hills campus are two Heart Heroes who shared their stories with the students, Kamaria Childers and Natalie Jackson.
 
Once Spiritual Enrichment Week finally arrived, the P.E. classes were alive with students performing various rope jumping events and competitions: most jumps backward and forward in a minute, Double Dutch, Hippity Hops, as well as other rope jumping. (Video coming soon)
