Athletics

Live well to STAND OUT.

Our athletic programs help every Knight recognize the champion inside. 

Championship Athletics

On the field, court, mat, green, track – EHS Knights STAND OUT. We’ve claimed 16 SPC championships over the past five school years (including back-to-back boys’ soccer and baseball wins and a historic girls’ golf title). No wonder our student athletes go on to play for the MLB, NFL, and Division I college teams around the country. On top of that, they’re champs in the classroom: You’ll find former Knights at top schools like Harvard, Howard, Brown, and more.

There's a champion inside. SET IT FREE.

Inspiring Activity

 

At EHS, we believe in developing the whole person.

Here, you’ll learn what it takes to lead a healthy life.

Live well to STAND OUT.
