Our goal at EMS is to launch graduates into the world who are equipped mentally, emotionally, academically, and spiritually to navigate their future. We encourage and support all of our students' plans for the future, whether they pursue higher education, a wage-earning job, training in the trades, voluntary service, or a gap year experience.
