Equipping students for a life of faith & learning

Western Mennonite School
Equipping students for a life of faith & learning


Thank you for choosing Western Mennonite School as the Christ-centered academic resource for your student! We recognize this choice as a compliment to your trust and confidence in our teachers and staff. We also understand that private school tuition is often a step of faith as you experience the financial burden of providing your student with this education.

You play a crucial role in the success and health of our school, and we want to acknowledge the significant impact you have in your communities.  In an effort to better equip you as effective ambassadors on behalf of WMS, we are instituting a new referral program. This program will provide the necessary tools, and reward you for your efforts!  For every new student you refer to WMS, you will receive up to $400 in tuition credit!


Promote enrollment to WMS among your spheres of influence (family, friends, church, business, sports teams, etc..) The following are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Invite a family to our next Visitors Day or Open House.
  • Bring a friend to a sports game (Contact our Admissions Department for some free passes).
  • Invite a friend to see a drama or music performance.
  • Provide the Admissions Department with the contact information of the prospective family (with permission please), and we’ll do the work!
  • Put a WMS sign in your lawn.
  • Distribute WMS promotional material at your work or business (See the Marketing Department for handouts).
  • Tag WMS in your positive social media posts.


As you promote WMS to your friends, our hope is that they will then apply for admissions! Referred family must indicate your influence on their decision to attend WMS during their application process. New families will have the opportunity to credit up to two families as referring them to WMS.


Upon acceptance and confirmation that both parties are in good standing, you receive up to $400 in tuition credit PER NEW STUDENT!
