The 10 members of the Canadian Association of Mennonite Schools (CAMS)- located in every province between Ontario and British Columbia- can all trace their lineage to a Mennonite conference or group. We have seven schools directly connected to Mennonite Church Canada through their supporting churches, two schools that connect to the Mennonite Brethren Conference and one school connected to the Evangelical Mennonite Conference of Manitoba. While each school is distinctive, there are many commonalities as well.Westgate Mennonite Collegiate, Winnipeg, Man., currently has 49 percent of its student population coming from one of 13 supporting Mennonite congregations. Rockway Mennonite Collegiate, Kitchener, Ont., presently has 37 percent of its students from MC Eastern Canada congregations. Mennonite Collegiate Institute (MCI), Gretna, Man., continues to have upwards of 80 percent of its students from a Mennonite background. Rosthern Junior College, Sask., has 46 percent of its students coming from MC Saskatchewan and MC Alberta congregations.Parental and student support from both Mennonite and non-Mennonite constituencies for both our educational and extracurricular choices has been, and continues to be, very strong. We strive to be sensitive to the interests of our students and constituency as we plan and implement programs in both of these areas.
