Located about midway between Kansas City and Wichita, our facility is in Emporia, Kansas, at 900 Overlander Road.
Make sure to look over the Emporia Area map provided in the Travel Pack before your arrival.
Restaurant choices are standard for the Midwestern and Southern states. Recently, the community has adopted a smoke-free law. Therefore all dining, lodging, and Glendo’s Training Center are smoke-free. Read more about the Emporia dining experience on the Visit Emporia website.
Most airlines have discounts for advance reservation (7-day, 21-day and 30-day). Before booking, check policies and restrictions on Saturday night stay-over, ticket changes, refunds, etc. Get ticket prices from several airlines and through more than one travel service. Generally, you will spend less money on travel if you make your arrangements sooner rather than later. Nearby airports are Kansas City International (MCI) and Wichita Mid-Continent Airport (ICT).
Renting a car is the best transportation from local airports to Emporia, and you have freedom to travel at your leisure. Use a travel service (either in person, over the phone, or online) to obtain the best rates. Round-trip mileage is an estimated 280 miles from Kansas City and 190 miles from Wichita, plus local travel. Rates that include unlimited mileage often make the most sense. We cannot transport students by any means for arrival, departure, or during their stay in Emporia. We are not licensed or insured for this type of service.
Driving Your Own Vehicle
Driving your own vehicle may be more practical than flying and renting a car. We have adequate parking for even a larger recreational vehicle.
If you need directions when you arrive, you may call us during business hours (Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.). After business hours, we recommend going directly to your hotel.
