Contact us at with questions.

Send us your updates

We need current snail mail and email addresses so we can inform you about five-year reunions, regional gatherings, and year-round events at the school if you are in the area. We -- and your friends and classmates --  are also interested in what's happening in our life!

Please share updates at so we can update our data base with contact information and share news about your involvements and accomplishments in an upcoming alumni electronic newsletter. 

Give generously!

Our alumni are generous! More than 10 percent of alumni make a gift to EMS each year. Alumni Giving for independent schools nationally is 9.5%. Virginia's even lower at about 8.5%. Thank you for helping us rise to the top!

Alumni help us make an education at EMS possible for people from a variety of traditions and backgrounds. And that diversity creates a rich environment where students, faculty and staff learn to listen to and respect varied perspectives, and develop and articulate their own faith and values. The cost of tuition covers only about 80% of the cost of a student's year at EMS. Please consider how you might empower future leaders of integrity by gifts to the EMS Second Century Fund.

Support us with a monthly, annual or one-time gift!
