Welcome to Ephrata Mennonite School

Welcome to Ephrata Mennonite School (EMS), a K-12 school of 379 students. For 75 years, EMS has partnered with parents to offer a high quality, Anabaptist education to families in Lancaster County. Our students, discipled in the way of our Lord Jesus Christ, are prepared for a life of service in the Kingdom of God. Our graduates own businesses, attend colleges, and work in missions around the world.

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, and Advanced Placement (AP) courses. Our teachers are experienced, caring professionals.

EMS is looking forward to moving into a brand new school, Lord willing, in approximately one year! These are exciting times. You can follow the progress and figure out how to be involved in this effort here.



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.
