The Day Student Experience

Day students make up 40 percent of Emma’s campus community. They are immersed in every aspect of the Emma Willard School experience.

Friendships formed at Emma make it nearly impossible to tell who is a day student or boarder. Day students are always welcome to stay overnight with friends, participate in evening and weekend events, and host boarding friends for a home-cooked meal or sleepover.

Each day student has her own centrally located locker. Day students enjoy the dining hall for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and often stay late to work with friends on projects and study sessions. They are also assigned to a 'neighborhood' where they benefit from our Wellness Advocate and Prefect support network and get to know girls from around the world.
