PLAN YOUR VISIT

Spending time at our school is the best way to discern if EMS is the right fit for your student and family.

Attend an upcoming admissions event (listed below) or schedule a private tour (online scheduler and contact information below).

Parents of elementary students should visit without their child first to minimize any confusion for younger children.

Middle and high school students and parents are welcome to explore our school together. A tour will last about an hour. Students may also visit classrooms for part of a day or a full day, depending on the age of the student and your family's schedule.
