COME - all are welcome!

Our website can offer you a brief snapshot of our school environment. However, to truly get a sense of our school culture, we invite you to visit Eastern Mennonite School to really experience our unique learning approach. Make plans today to attend an upcoming admissions event at one of our campuses or to schedule a private tour at your convenience.


For parents of elementary age students wanting a private tour of our elementary school, we suggest parents visit first to minimize any confusion for younger children. For middle and high school families, we suggest bringing your student along with you to explore our school. We will match visiting middle and high school students with an EMS student host so visitors can experience a typical day at EMS through the eyes of a student. Student visitation days can be arranged for a half or whole day - whichever suits your family best!
