Equipping students for a life of faith & learning


Join us for a campout & viewing party!



For the first time since 1979 a total solar eclipse will be seen across the United States! Salem Oregon will be some of the first cities to behold this extraordinary event as it touches down on the Oregon coast at 10:15 a.m. PDT.

Western Mennonite School’s 45 acre campus offers a pristine viewing experience. Rooms in the school dorm, RV sites, and Tent sites are available for reservation! While the totality of the eclipse may only last 2 minutes as it crosses the sky, we offer great facilities to create a lasting memory with your family and friends!
