How will you put your Signature on the world?

Signature is Emma Willard School’s capstone program for juniors and seniors that allows them to deeply explore a personal passion. Signature students work on a project for two semesters with an on-campus mentor and/or an expert off-campus, and share the summation of their work in a presentation to the entire school community.
The Signature program is for students who have a demonstrated passion for a topic, have identified adults to work with, and have dedicated time to complete a project.
Emma Girls have used Signature to promote local women-owned businesses, work on cutting-edge biotechnology research at nearby universities, report news for the Albany Times Union, create their own films, and more.

While the definition of chill may look different to each of us, the Mental Health Ambassadors offer up some solutions.
