Help students gain access to the EMS experience

Experiential Learning

In more traditional school settings, students often hear and read about others’ experiences. At EMS, teachers consider individual learning styles and facilitate opportunities for students to make discoveries and experiment with knowledge firsthand. Co-Curricular programs like athletics, clubs, and learning trips further extend the classroom.


The Arts

The arts program ensures daily, year round creativity for our students, fostering a lasting impact. The concert season features directors, vocalists, and instrumentalists who collaboratively put together outstanding performances that bring together the school and local community. The theater department offers a middle and high school play, as well as a winter high school musical. Visual arts inspire students in the classroom and imbue creativity in learning throughout the school. 

Faith Formation

In addition to the regular Bible curriculum, students grow in their faith through integration of values-based content across school life. We welcome speakers -- from area pastors to far-flung alumni -- to share during chapel and elementary gathering times. Our student-led service club supports others beyond the school through food drives, trash pick-ups, local church children's outreach, and more. We encourage each other in hard times and celebrate each other's joys.
