Let the Children Come

Help us grow!

In 2005 Eastern Mennonite Elementary School opened its doors several miles from campus at Lindale Mennonite Church. Thirteen years later, in August 2018, the K-5 students and teachers joined the 6-12 program at its long-time home at 801 Parkwood Drive in Harrisonburg.

We are sharing space during the 2018-19 academic year while we renovate the former MennoMedia building adjacent to our site for one full K-12 campus. The plan includes renovation, an addition and creative outdoor learning space with gardens and natural play structures.
