Diversity in Admissions

At Emma, we know that a global perspective is the very bedrock of a transformative education. Each year, we attract applicants from over 20 states and five continents. Our partnerships with organizations that support high-achieving students from underrepresented backgrounds and independent schools in the United States ensures we connect with talented students from diverse racial, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds. With over $4.5 million in need-based financial aid, Emma stands proud in its commitment to the very best education for girls.

Our partnerships with The Davis Scholars Program, The Holloway Foundation, international consultants, parents, and alumnae extend our reach around the globe. 

In addition, we currently have students from the following access organizations or sending school programs which support educational access for underrepresented students in the US.
Additional access organizations we have worked with or plan to partner with in the coming years, include:
