Boarding School Experience

Resident Faculty

Our resident faculty are educational professionals whose primary responsibility is living and working in the residence halls, ensuring you receive the highest level of care and support.

Our dedicated and diverse team plays a key role in guiding you through Emma’s academic and social lives, providing personalized support, and giving positive encouragement every single day. As the “parents away from home,” they partner with parents in an effort to guide you through your Emma journey.

They also work closely with each other and our student leaders on each hall lead a boarding curriculum through hall teas and events to foster bonding, celebrate birthdays and holidays, and to address community living topics such as conflict mediation, culture shock and diversity, and life skills.
