Emma Willard School Alumnae

Generations of talented, driven women have passed through Emma's gray walls.

More than 8,000 women worldwide found a deep network of sisterhood and empowerment that extends far beyond campus. If someone is overheard saying they studied at Emma Willard School, there’s often an alumna eager to share her experience and support.

We encourage and promote these connections between our graduates, and hope to foster them further through engaging alumnae events and opportunities for involvement.
