Welcome to Ephrata Mennonite School

Welcome to Ephrata Mennonite School (EMS), a K-12 school of 380 students. For 75 years, EMS has partnered with parents to offer a high quality, Christian education to students in northern Lancaster County and surrounding areas. We seek to nurture and value the whole child, developing their character and mentoring their spirit, with kindness and love.

We are fully accredited through the Middle States Association accrediting agency. Our academic program of nationally recognized curriculum includes Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW), Saxon Math, Bob Jones University Press Reading, Barton Tutoring, and Advanced Placement (AP) courses for our upper level students.



Each child, as a unique creation of God, has potential that flourishes when it is identified and nurtured.

Ephrata Mennonite School partners with parents and churches to challenge students to become Citizens of the Kingdom of God, who are Lifelong Learners and Team Players, through Diligent Work and Academic Excellence.
