Alumnae

Welcome!

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.

    Finding the Connection: The Explorers

    By JoAnn Gometz
    For students at Emma Willard School, it’s always been easy to look to graduates for inspiration. The rapid and revolutionary changes in global society and educational methodologies over the last century, though, sometimes make it difficult for alumnae to see their experiences reflected in the lives of today’s students. This series of stories (originally printed in the Spring 2022 edition of Signature magazine) highlights pairs who found the connection.
