    Prom & Graduation

    After careful review of the June 11th update to Governor Kemp's Executive Order, it has been determined that both the ECHS live graduation ceremony and prom event must be canceled.  Per the order, the governor will not permit gatherings of more than 50 people at a single location at this time. We appreciate your continued support and understanding as we maneuver through the "different normal" we are currently experiencing.

mission & vision

    Our Mission
    As a community of learners, in cooperation with stakeholders, our mission is to provide rigorous and relevant instruction in a safe environment to enable all students to obtain a high school diploma as a foundation for post-secondary success
    A note from our Principal
    What really matters is not so much what students at Effingham County High School walk away with in their hands, but how many sparks we ignite in their hearts. There’s no doubt students want inspiration more than they want stuff. The caring faculty member, not the content, determines whether students at our school walk away ignited or extinguished. Our faculty understands that the influence we have on children is powerful. Be it positive or negative, it is lasting. Read more
