Students grades 5 through 11 are invited to visit Eastern Mennonite Middle and High School Nov. 5.
Visitors will shadow a student with similar interests, observe classes, sit in on chapel service, eat lunch and learn about extracurricular activities. Parents are invited for an informational session, chapel and a tour of the campus.
“It’s a great way to just come and ‘feel’ whether EMS is the right fit for students and their families,” says Marsha Thomas, admissions counselor for K-12.
“When you walk in our hallways and see that we trust each other enough to leave backpacks unattended and lockers unlocked, when you feel the interaction in a small classroom, when you potentially join a class using digital cameras outdoors or doing plant identification in nearby Park Woods, you know if this is right for you.”
Prospective students and families are encouraged to register with this form by Oct.29 so the school can be prepared to welcome and host each student, based on their individual interests.
For questions or to schedule a visit on a different day, contact EMS admissions at 540-236-6021 or email email@example.com.
