Physical Education complements a rigorous academic program at the Emma Willard School.
In addition to Varsity and JV programs, Emma offers afterschool opportunities so that students at all ability levels can have an athletic outlet.
Emma Willard’s campus provides the ideal setting for active students interested in athletics and recreation. With wooded trails on campus and plenty of open green space, students can spend time catching up with friends and staying healthy by playing Ultimate Frisbee or going on a run with classmates through our beautiful campus.
Afterschool activity offerings include Zumba, fitness walking, running, soccer, lifeguard training, tennis, Ultimate Frisbee, weight conditioning, yoga and more.
We believe that swimming is an essential life skill that every Emma graduate should be able to demonstrate. All students complete a swimming and water safety test. If a student is not able to complete the test, she will be placed in a swim instruction and water safety course.
Open swimming is also offered routinely. Please check the facility hours for more information. Related physical education class offerings include swimming and lifeguard training.
