Lancaster Mennonite brings out the best in students
As a comprehensive, holistic private school, LM helps students of diverse abilities and interests be all they can be. The student body includes students with academic difficulties as well as Merit Scholars; it includes those who want to work with their hands as well as those who aspire to work toward professional careers. We are proud to offer an expansive offering of STEAM classes and opportunities integrated within our curriculum at all grade levels.
Action-based learning stations, free play, guided play, and structured lessons help students develop social-emotional and academic skills, laying the foundation for future school success.
LM’s full-day Kindergarten balances an academically rigorous literacy and math program with built-in time for play-based learning and imaginative play.
Elementary students (K - 4th grade) build strong academic and social skills within a restorative justice framework that nurtures the whole child in a caring community.
Built around driving questions and project-based learning, middle school students (5th - 8th grade) follow an integrated curriculum that develops creative collaborators, communicators and critical thinkers.
In addition to excellent academic and social opportunities, LM high school students (9th - 12th grade) consistently win regional and national awards in art, music, writing, FFA, athletics, and other competitions.
Designed for Success
LM’s academic excellence is evidenced by our 100% college acceptance rate, 99% pass rate of Advanced Placement exams, SAT scores 140 points above the national average, and significantly higher Advanced Placement test success of LM students versus PA and national averages, according to College Board data. The 5-year trend clearly reflects the growing strength of LM’s academic program that drives increasing AP success while PA and national averages remained unchanged over the years. LM students out-performed PA and National averages by significant margins.
