A typical Emma Willard weekday includes morning reports, five or six classes, study time, one-on-ones with teachers, club meetings and an after-school activity like team practice, orchestra rehearsal or dance class.
Transportation to Emma Willard is provided by many local school districts. Parents are also encouraged to explore car pool possibilities. Day students who drive to school must register their cars with security and park only in designated student parking areas. Students may not use their cars to go off campus for lunch or errands during the day (except for seniors, once senior privileges are in effect and with permission of Student Services).
Time on Campus
