Academics At Hershey
At the Hershey Campus of Lancaster Mennonite, we believe in educating the whole child—spiritually, academically, socially and emotionally. Our greatest strength is an environment that sustains a healthy, loving Christian community. Families and visitors often remark about the spirit and positive energy they see when at the school. We can tell you a lot about the school, but why don’t you come see for yourself?
It is our mission to provide students with a “well rounded education that equips them to live faithful, God-honoring lives, whatever their vocation or calling.” That’s not a public relations statement; it’s an earnest commitment to the One whom we serve and to all the parents who entrust us with their children.
All aspects of our school from open lockers to weekly chapel have been put in place to create a warm environment of mutual trust and responsibility. Positive peer influences and high expectations help our students learn important life lessons that they carry well beyond the classroom.
God has allowed us to build for a number of years, but not with concrete, metal, drywall, and brick. He has allowed us to build within. He has called our staff, teachers, and our families together to build a strong spiritual foundation that has created a strong academic, social, and extracurricular program.
God has also immensely blessed and prospered our school, enabling us to provide a top-notch education that centers on glorifying God in all academic disciplines. Our primary goal has always been to glorify God and educate students in a God-centered atmosphere. God has honored this goal and enabled our school to excel in academics and in the Arts, exceeding testing scores of public schools and receiving awards.
