Signature is Emma Willard School’s capstone program for juniors and seniors centered around exploring a personal interest.

Signature students work on a chosen project for a full year with an on-campus mentor (and sometimes an off-campus expert). They share the summary of their work in a presentation and panel discussion with the entire school community. This opportunity is for students who have a demonstrated interest in a topic and are looking for a way to include this fascination into their school experience. Students often apply experiences from Practicum and/or Community
Engagement and Social Impact to Signature projects.
