Celebrating the Class of 2021!

Welcome to the 207th Commencement of Emma Willard School!
The Class of 2021 has thrived through a time of constant change, with the words "virtual" and "hybrid" and "pivot" peppered throughout their final two years at Emma Willard School. We join them in celebrating their accomplishments, their character, and their heart. We salute you, 2021, and look back at your remarkable impact over the past four years...
