Eastern Mennonite School joins home and church in calling students to faith in Jesus Christ, academic excellence, personal integrity, and compassionate service in the world. Eastern Mennonite School aspires to reflect Christ's light as a learning community where every student belongs, thrives, and lives God's call.
The K-12 curriculum is designed to foster reading, research, writing and presentation skills that grow student curiosity, creative and insightful thinking, organizational strategies and a moral social conscience. A strong college preparatory track includes honors, Advanced Placement, and other advanced courses. Regular activities are also designed to help students grow spiritually as well as intellectually.
In study, worship, and play, students are challenged to integrate faith with life. A participatory-based co-curricular program at the elementary level encourages exploration of talents. Middle school students take part in exploratory classes in addition to core subjects, encouraging them to test out interests and skills in a variety of subjects and areas.
High school students further refine skills and confidence in performance through music -- including choral performance with international touring opportunities -- musical theater, service opportunities, a wide variety of clubs, and competitive athletics.
Eastern Mennonite School is a member of the Mennonite Schools Council and is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools since 1957 and the Virginia Association of Independent Schools since 2002.
