Honoring its founder’s vision, Emma Willard School proudly fosters in each young woman a love of learning, the habits of an intellectual life, and the character, moral strength, and qualities of leadership to serve and shape her world.
Every year our various teaching departments gather to honor students who have gone above and beyond in a particular discipline. During Morning Reports, teachers award ‘Kudos’ to these students and offer some insight into their exceptional progress over the academic year. We celebrate the hard work and determination that these kudos represent in Math, Science, Computer Science, and the Signature program.
One thing is abundantly clear to anyone who has experienced Revels at Emma Willard School: the magic can’t be explained, it must be felt. For 106 years, Emma seniors have taken on the same roles (with some new ones), performed the same songs, dance steps, and script (mostly) in December. The Class of 2021 however, would present a different Revels. They were making a movie.
The 207th Commencement exercises presented an opportunity to finally bring together the Emma Willard School community—students, families, and faculty—to joyfully celebrate the Class of 2021 at the completion of their high school journey.
