Enrollment Report
January 2015
OVERVIEW OF
ENROLLMENT REPORTS
Enrollment numbers are one of many ways to look at our Mennonite educational institutions and
programs. It is the intent of this report to offer a glimpse into Mennonite education by focusing on
one area: enrollment. For those who are interested in more in-depth analysis or more information on a
specific area, please contact the MEA office at [email protected]
MEA has gathered enrollment statistics from the various education levels and educational programs
for many years. Enrollment statistics at the PreK-12 level include only the member schools of
Mennonite Schools Council (MSC). Please note that two international schools are affiliated members
of MSC—Colegio Americas Unidas in Colombia, and Lezha Academic Center in Albania. Other
Mennonite PreK-12 schools and early childhood education centers scattered across North America
that are not MSC members are not included in these reports. Preschool enrollment data was collected
from Mennonite Early Childhood Network members for the fourth time this year.
The enrollment data is presented using the following levels and/or categories:
Preschool programs of Mennonite Early Childhood Network (MECN)
Prekindergarten, elementary, middle and secondary programs of Mennonite Schools
Council (MSC) schools
Undergraduate programs of Bethel College, Bluffton University, Eastern Mennonite
University (EMU), Goshen College and Hesston College
Adult degree-completion programs of Bluffton University, EMU and Goshen College
Graduate programs of Bluffton University, EMU and Goshen College
Seminary programs of Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary (AMBS) and Eastern
Mennonite Seminary (EMS)
Other degree programs of Anabaptist Learning Institute (ALI) and Seminario Bíblico
Anabautista Hispano (SeBAH)
Non-degree programs of AMBS, EMS, EMU and Instituto Bíblico Anabautista (IBA)
Under each level are current year statistics and basic enrollment trend charts or tables. We have
chosen to further break down the enrollment data by focusing on Mennonite enrollment data (both
Mennonite Church USA and other Mennonite groups) and Racial/Ethnic enrollment data (including
both U.S. Racial/Ethnic and international students).
As you look at the numbers and reach your own conclusions, here are some helpful definitions:
1
Full-time – students taking the number of credit hours required by the institution to receive
full-time status
Part-time – students taking fewer credit hours than the minimum needed for full-time status
FTE – full-time equivalent (adding the credit hours of both full-time and part-time students to
determine the possible number of full-time students)
Head count – total number of students regardless of their part-time or full-time status
Racial/Ethnic – refers to students from under-represented Racial/Ethnic groups from the
United States; in the higher education institutions the Racial/Ethnic count refers only to
Racial/Ethnic students from the U.S., international students are a separate category
International - students at U.S. schools from countries other than the United States, and
students at Canadian schools from countries other than Canada
A significant effort was made to ensure that our enrollment reports have integrity and that the findings
accurately reflect the numbers. The enrollment numbers of an entire educational system can bury
implications deep below the obvious surface interpretations. Care needs to be taken that assumptions
are not made using only one small part of the data without putting such data elements into the context
of the larger system. In an educational system as small as MEA’s, a few unique circumstances can skew
the findings of an entire segment of the report. These unique situations have been identified when
possible throughout the report and have been taken into consideration in our analysis of the
information. Tension between system wide trends and local realities is acknowledged. It is also
important to note that these numbers are a picture of what enrollment looks like on a particular day at a
particular institution.
The transformation that birthed MEA and merged multiple educational systems also disrupted the
long-standing data collection procedures. The most reliable and consistent data enables eight-year to
14-year trend reports. Enrollment numbers from one year provide a very short insight into enrollment
patterns, but they are not very helpful for long-range planning. Whenever possible, longer trends are
provided. Great care has gone into the accuracy of the numbers reported.
The interpretation of the numbers can be viewed from several perspectives—usually shaped by the
question or the person reading the data. For the purpose of this report, the focus was determined by
the MEA outcome statement focused on “ready and viable access” as stated below:
Viable Access. Students seeking Christ-centered Anabaptist-Mennonite education
have viable access to Mennonite Church USA schools.
Working with the schools on issues related to location, delivery system, cost, transfer
and outreach to the under-served, MEA envisions and supports programs and
initiatives that facilitate ready accessibility.

TOTAL SYSTEM HIGHLIGHTS
Current Year Systemwide Enrollment
Mennonite educational institutions are touching the lives of 13,589 students (based on headcount) in
fall 2014, a decrease of 340 (2.4%) students from the 2013 total of 13,929. In higher education, the
total headcount decreased by 52 students (with increases of 26 in adult degree-completion, 20 in
graduate, 12 in seminary and a decrease of 115 in undergraduate) while preschool, elementary and
secondary education levels showed a decrease of 288 (3.1%). All higher education institutions reported
their enrollment numbers. For the academic year 2014-2015, there are 31 MSC schools (29 member
schools and two affiliates), and MEA received data from all but one of them. For the previous
academic year, data was received from 33 MSC schools. It should be noted that the decrease in the
number of MSC schools affects the total number of students reported. The decrease in MSC numbers
is influenced by the fact that three less schools reported this year.
Headcount information from Mennonite Early Childhood Network (MECN) preschool/childcare
centers (non-MSC schools) is included for the fourth year. For the academic years 2012-2013 and
2011-2012, MEA received data from seven preschool/childcare centers; in 2013-14 MEA received
data from four; in 2014-15 MEA received data from three. The data varies from year to year
depending on which preschool centers report information. The MEA office is still working on
systematizing the data for this level.
Current Year Systemwide Mennonite Enrollment
“Mennonite Church USA” students include only those that report attending a Mennonite Church
USA congregation. All other Mennonites are included in the “All Mennonite” category. Note that the
number of Mennonite Church USA students in higher education in fall 2014 (1,016) decreased from
the 2013 total (1,115) for a combined decrease of 99 while PreK-12 decreased 289 for a total net
decrease of 388 in fall 2014.

Summary total
You may note that the total number of all Mennonites attending higher education institutions decreased
(from 1,569 to 1,177—25.0%) from 2009 to 2014. However, two areas of higher education experienced an
increase (Adult degree-completion from 21 to 36—71.4% and Graduate from 18 to 83—361.1%) while
decreases occurred in the other two areas (Undergraduate from 1,455 to 1,012—30.4% and Seminary from
75 to 46—38.7%) during the same time period. In this section, the PreK numbers from MECN
institutions or programs that are not part of MSC schools are not included because the number of
Mennonite/non-Mennonite students is not available.

PRESCHOOL PROGRAMS
Mennonite Early Childhood Network
The Mennonite Early Childhood Network (MECN) was established in 2005 to address the care and
education of children, birth through kindergarten, in through-the-week programs. The mission of
MECN, is to assist in developing the whole child spiritually, physically, emotionally, socially and
cognitively within a framework that reflects an Anabaptist interpretation* of the Christian faith by
providing information and resources for parents and early childhood educators of all children, birth
through kindergarten. (*Christ is the center of our faith. Community is the center of our life.
Reconciliation is the center of our work.)
MECN maintains an interactive website (www.MennoniteEducation.org/MECN), sends E-Alerts that
highlight available resources and relevant news items, encourages networking opportunities among its
members, and represents Mennonite early childhood education at Mennonite conferences. Linda
Taylor serves as the coordinator for MECN. MEA currently provides staff time, website development,
and financial support.
MECN members, as of fall 2014:
• Individuals
• Mothers’ groups with child care
• Child care programs
• Family child care homes
• First Steps program
• Head Start programs
• Preschool/nursery schools
• Mennonite Schools Council (MSC) schools
MECN Survey Results – December 2014
Eleven early childhood programs responded to the fourth MECN data survey. Seven of these are
Mennonite Schools Council members, one is an early learning center associated with Hesston College
and three are independent centers. All sites operate in Mennonite facilities and/or are operated by
Mennonites.
The programs represented were:
• Preschool as part of a school program
• Preschool (separate from a school program)
• Laboratory School
All but one school reported having a state license plus regional accreditation or participation in a
quality rating system like: the STARS rating, accreditation by the National Association for the
Education of Young Children (NAEYC), or accreditation by a regional body.
8
Mennonite early childhood centers serve a diverse mix of families. This includes Mennonite and
related Anabaptist families, families from other denominations, and families with no particular faith
affiliation. All of the reporting early childhood centers reported ethnic diversity. All are majority
Caucasian. Most centers reported having children with special needs.
The early childhood centers represented in this report were started out of parent, family, church and
school initiatives in each decade since the 1940s. The program highlights that were reported include
the following:
• Achievement: successful STARS ratings, NAEYC accreditation, and regional accreditation.
Sarasota Christian School earned 4.5 stars (out of a possible 5) in the Look for the Stars
rating scale.
• Serving the community needs for child care; offering play and child-focused, hands-on
curriculum; supporting learning differences in children; preparing children for school.
• Curriculum revisions; making better use of our 50 acre campus through more nature walks
exploring, etc.
• Website updated to be much more attractive and user-friendly.
• Moved one classroom to a location with direct access to the playground.
• Watched the children grow and learn together, becoming friends.
• Teaching the Bible and hearing children say their Bible memory verse.
• Professional development experiences for early childhood teachers.
• Outdoor learning environment that includes gardening.
• Peace building and faith building curriculum that integrates the teachings of Jesus into
students’ everyday lives.
• Monies were received from the Hesston Community Foundation in April 2014 to offer
scholarships for families in need; scholarships were available to families in fall 2014.
• Fundraising on Tuesdays during November, where a local restaurant offered to donate 15%
of proceeds from meals to our scholarship fund.
Challenges were noted in the areas of:
• Management/operations: staffing, leadership development, professional development, safety
and security, facility needs.
• Financial: salaries, tuition, affordability, funding, enrollment.
• Communication: with parents (including parenting education), with the community and the
church regarding the value of early childhood education, and around issues of diversity.
Examples include:
• Finding a permanent site that meets our curricular and space needs and is affordable.
• Balancing our staffing and students with special needs.
• One of our churches recently notified us that this school year will be our last year at their
facility. Securing a new location is a challenge currently.
• Continuing to grow the scholarship fund with fundraisers and marketing the preschool to
families who are in need of quality preschool education.
• Compensating teachers for their hard work; helping parents with their parenting skills.
• Hiring and keeping quality educators; ECE is not known to be the most high paying career
choice however we strive to let our staff know that they (like our mission statement) are
individuals loved, valued, cared for, delighted in, and respected.
• Declining enrollment; finances; finding substitute teachers.
• Creating a playground which provides an enhanced outdoor learning environment

PreK-12 EDUCATION:
Mennonite Schools Council
PreK-12 Current Year Enrollment
Total PreK-12 enrollments decreased 600 students (-6.6%) from 9,104 in fall 2013 to 8,504 in fall
2014. For the academic year 2014-15, there are 31 MSC member schools (including two affiliates), and
MEA received data from all but one of them. For the previous academic year, data was received from
30 MSC member schools. NOTE: If we look at the data for the 30 schools that reported both in 2013
and 2014, the PreK-12 enrollment in that group increased 49 students (0.6%) from 8,455 in fall 2013 to
8,504 in fall 2014.

Twelve-year PreK-12 Education Enrollment Trends by Institution, Based on Headcount
Twelve schools had enrollment increases over the past 12 years and 16 schools had decreases. Twelve-year
trend reporting gives a more accurate enrollment trend, but the one-year picture is included which reflects the
most recent changes. (Note: Several schools have not participated in MEA enrollment reporting long enough to
show a twelve-year change, but they are included with the number of years change indicated in parentheses.)

Racial/Ethnic Enrollment Changes, Fall 2007 through Fall 2014, PreK-12 Schools
Racial/Ethnic enrollment counts include all students from under-represented Racial/Ethnic groups, not
just Mennonite Church USA. Only schools reporting this information are included in this table.
The changes in the Racial/Ethnic student percentage of enrollment reflect variations in the schools that
reported from year to year.
An enrollment reporting form introduced in 2008 resulted in an increase in the number of schools
reporting (from 16 schools in fall 2007 to 30 in fall 2014). Note that, apart from new reporting
mechanisms, the MSC schools have experienced a significant increase in the Racial/Ethnic population.
This explains part of the growth in total number of Racial/Ethnic and international students from 572
in fall 2007 to 3,077 in fall 2014. Another way to look at the data would be that in fall 2008, the
average number of Racial/Ethnic students in each of the 34 reporting institutions was 48, and in 2014
the average number of Racial/Ethnic students in each of the 30 reporting institutions was 75.

• In 2014, international students (171) made up 4.8% of undergraduate enrollment. Twenty-two
students (0.6% of the total headcount population) were Mennonite, and 149 students (4.2% of the
total headcount population) were non-Mennonite.
• The undergraduate international student population decreased 6.6% from 183 students in 2008 to
171 students in 2014, that is, from providing 5.1% of the total student population in 2008 to 4.8%
of the population in 2014.
• The cross-cultural impact on the undergraduate programs of the Mennonite colleges and
universities can be calculated by adding the total (headcount) Racial/Ethnic and international
student populations together. Thus, 704 Racial/Ethnic students and 171 international students,
create a cross-cultural impact on the total undergraduate programs of 875 students (24.5% based on
headcount) in 2014. This compares to a total of 618 Racial/Ethnic students and 184 international
students in 2013 for a cross-cultural impact of 802 students (22.4% based on headcount)
representing an increase of 73 students (9.1%) from 2013 to 2014. Since 2000, the total crosscultural impact of Racial/Ethnic and international students has increased by 311 students (55.1%)
from 564 students in 2000 to 875 students in 2014.

The Anabaptist Learning Institute (ALI) is a program of Mennonite Schools Council (MSC) and MEA.
ALI is designed to provide an intentional Christ-centered orientation and professional education program
for teachers, pastors and other leaders. ALI seeks to unify the Anabaptist community under a common set
of educational experiences that encourage dialogue about faith and values. Participants refine and
implement their philosophy of teaching and learning.
Seventeen teachers have completed all four of the graduate-level courses, earning the MEA seal as an
Anabaptist Educator. ALI provides opportunities to earn graduate credit provided by the Mennonite
higher education institution offering the course—Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary, Bluffton
University or Eastern Mennonite University.
Course titles are:
Learning the Language of Community
Understanding the Roots of Community
Building Caring Communities
Shaping a Community of Learners

OTHER DEGREE
PROGRAMS
In response to ongoing requests from Hispanic Mennonite groups for more biblical-theological education for
their leaders, in 2009 the Hispanic Pastoral and Leadership Education (HPLE) office of MEA developed
Seminario Bíblico Anabautista Hispano (SeBAH) in collaboration with Mennonite higher education
institutions. MEA continues to work with Anabaptist Mennonite Biblical Seminary, Eastern Mennonite
Seminary and Mennonite colleges/universities and area conferences in finding ways to partner in this
endeavor.
SeBAH offers a biblical/theological, ministerial education in Spanish at the undergraduate level. These studies
are designed mostly for active leaders in U.S. Hispanic Anabaptist/Mennonite congregations. SeBAH
provides an open, formal, and alternative education that is accessible and affordable to Hispanic Mennonite
leaders—regardless of their geographical location. SeBAH combines face-to-face and distance education
using instructors remotely (via e-mail) and local mentors with the involvement of the regional conference
ministers. SeBAH’s curriculum consists of eight courses, two workshops and a final pastoral project, totaling
28 credit hours. SeBAH offers a “Certificate in Pastoral Ministry” with recognition from the chosen
Mennonite educational institution, if the student so desires to register and accumulate credits at the given
institution.
SeBAH continues with the development/curriculum writing with qualified Latino Anabaptist Mennonite
writers as the program continues to have exposure in other parts of the church. The curriculum has begun to
be translated into English for the use of second generation Latino students and other Mennonite leaders or
ethnic groups that will benefit from the flexibility and affordability of the program.
In fall 2014, the partnership covenant agreement with the Church of the Brethren was renewed for a third
two-year term, to provide pastoral training in Spanish through SeBAH. Through this agreement, SeBAH is
the official program for the training of their Hispanic leaders. The Brethren Academy for Ministerial
Leadership is providing administrative oversight, resources and faculty for additional components specific to
the Church of the Brethren denomination. Graduates of SeBAH-Church of the Brethren track will receive
the same “Certificate in Pastoral Ministry” as Mennonite students. Some conversations have taken place
about offering SeBAH internationally but these are moving rather slowly.
Students
In 2012 to 2013, 21 Church of the Brethren students
and two Mennonite Church USA students were part of
the program. In 2013 a new cohort was started in Puerto
Rico with nine students enrolled in the first course with
three students continuing on. Currently, 20 students are
beginning book six and three students are beginning
book three. A total of 23 students are enrolled in
SeBAH.
Conversations continue with the Church of the Brethren
to explore starting a new cohort in the East/Midwest
sometime in the spring of 2015.

NON-DEGREE PROGRAMS:
Higher Education Institutions
Mennonite seminaries, colleges and universities contribute significantly to the ongoing professional
development and training of pastoral and congregational leaders each year. These institutions offer
formal classes on campus and at off-campus sites, but they also impact a broad portion of our
church leadership through non-degree programs offered each year. These tables show the impact of
AMBS, EMS and EMU over the past year.

PROGRAMS
The mission of Instituto Bíblico Anabautista (IBA) is to provide educational resources that
promote biblical-theological training of Spanish-speaking leaders who will serve Mennonite
Church USA in various ministries. IBA functions under Mennonite Education Agency
(MEA) in partnership with Mennonite Mission Network and Iglesia Menonita Hispana. IBA
is a biblical and theological education program for ministerial preparation. It was founded in
1988 to fulfill the vision of the Reference Council of the Hispanic Ministries Department of
the former General Conference Mennonite Church.
The institute functions by study centers in the local congregations with a tutor assigned to
each center. It has two study levels: certificate and diploma. The majority of the students
take an active part in the leadership of their congregations, such as serving as Sunday school
teachers or deacons, while others have been chosen as pastors and/or church planters.
For the year 2013-2014, IBA had:
•

YOUTH CENSUS
Data included in this report was gathered from the school years 2003-04 through 2013-14.
While not enough to document long-term trends or to extract full-blown census projections for
the denomination, these statistics lay a foundation for understanding the parameters of the
Mennonite Church USA Youth Census.
The data from the past eleven school years were selected for analysis because they represent the
cleanest Youth Census data available. Prior to 2003, Youth Census data did not include the
General Conference Mennonite Church denomination; only names from the Mennonite Church
denomination were included.

Youth Census Issues
• A goal for the Youth Census is to increase the number of congregational participants. A
5% decrease in participating congregations resulted in a 1.7% decrease in membership
participation in the Youth Census for 2013-14 compared with 2012-13.
• Efforts to strengthen the quality of the database by MEA staff included calls and e-mails
to congregational representatives to verify the accuracy of information submitted for
inclusion in the database.
• Periodically, the database is “cleansed” by a process designed to complete incomplete
addresses, correct zip codes, change addresses for persons that moved and other details
that increase the accuracy of the addresses.
Mennonite Church USA Response to Requests for Youth Census Information
• The movement of congregations in and out of Mennonite Church USA membership makes
detailed trend comparisons difficult. Each year will be considered on its own merits until an
adequate history has been created to see long-range trends.
• The total Youth Census database, as of 2013-14, contains 19,981 active names.
Active Count by Graduation Year
The Youth Census table reflects the database according to high school graduation year. These
counts represent the actual number of Youth Census names available for each graduation year,
not the total number of high school graduates for the entire church.

Returns by Area Conference and by Region
A breakdown of the Youth Census returns by area conference may be found in Table 15.
Three regions were created to provide a geographical perspective of the congregations that
participated in the census. Thirty-five percent of the congregations in the middle region
reported 46% of the region’s membership. In the west, 25% of the congregations reported
35% of the region’s membership. In the east, 24% of the congregations reported 38% of the
region’s membership.
Comparison of Mennonite College/University Attendance Reporting with Youth
Census Reporting of Higher Education Enrollment by Congregations
College/university attendance information is requested on the Youth Census data collection
form. Some persons submitting census information have good data available to them and
some do not, so the consistency of this information varies.
However, a comparison of the reports regarding Mennonite college/university attendance was
included in Table 16 even though the long-term value of this report may be in question.
This model is flawed because it assumes that the college/university students included in a
specific enrollment year all came directly from high school to higher education. The reality is
that college/university students often take time out for service, work or travel rather than
follow a four-year lock-step sequence to enrollment in a college/university. However, the
model begins to lay the foundation for tightening the collection of data around this question.
