Student Visitation Days (for middle and high school students) are a great chance for students to spend part of a day at Eastern Mennonite School. A visitation day provides an opportunity for students to get a feel for a typical day, experience the nurturing spiritual atmosphere, observe hands-on learning in the classroom, and meet students. Visitors will be hosted by an EMS student who will take them to classes, chapel, and lunch. Parents are invited to stay for part of the morning during Visitation Days so that they might learn more about the Eastern Mennonite School curriculum and commitment to faith, academics, integrity, and service.Monday, January 20, 2014 8:15AM-3PM.

Elementary Open Houses are an informal time for families and student to come learn what unique options Eastern Mennonite Elementary School offers both students and families. An Open House offers an up-close opportunity to witness first-hand the unique, challenging, and personal learning environment we strive to maintain. You'll also meet the teachers behind our curriculum and observe how our students are encouraged and challenged to be curious, to explore, and to question.
