In their time at Emma Willard School, our students discover that they are uniquely exceptional, and they go on to become uniquely exceptional alumnae with a fierce passion to serve and shape our world.

Our community is made up of lots of people from lots of places with lots of opinions, and we wouldn’t change a thing. From making multifaceted friends to discovering a new passion through club connections, the Emma community is built on belonging. Share in the traditions that bind together generations of students, families, alumnae, and friends across 200+ years of history.

Student Life

Education at Emma isn’t limited to the classroom—it’s woven into the fabric of our community. Bonds created in the residence and dining halls, while practicing for an athletics match or arts performance, at one of our many cherished traditions, and all the little moments in between, define the Emma experience.


Alumnae Connections

With over 8,000 alumnae, our Emma network is strong and vast, filled with remarkable women who lead and pursue lifelong learning. Community connectedness is a longstanding Emma Willard School tradition carried on by our alumnae...wherever life takes you, that connection goes with you.


Family Connections

A strong and lasting relationship with our families is a distinctive quality of the Emma Willard School experience. Whether a family has been a part of the Emma legacy for generations, or is joining our community for the first time, opportunities to participate abound.
