Why Emma?

Teacher and two students in a classroom

Founded in 1814, Emma Willard School was built on the notion that women could excel in an academically rigorous environment, just like men. Over 200 years later, Emma remains an institution that thrives on intellectual curiosity and making way for everyone’s voice to be heard. Surrounded by century-old gothic architecture, EMployees at Emma Willard School become a part of a community that is surrounded by tradition, yet focused on meeting the greatest challenges of our world. From working toward anti-racism to addressing climate change to pursuing social justice, the Emma community is engaged in combining academic excellence with real-world impact. What’s more, we genuinely care about one another while we’re doing it.

If you love being a part of something greater than yourself, Emma is your place. If you love being a part of a community that supports and cares about one another, Emma is your place. If you love striving for excellence, Emma is your place.
