Try out a new skills or truly excel in an activity you’ve been training in for years on one of our 13 interscholastic JV and Varsity athletics teams. Emma’s take-on-anything culture means we have everything from first-time players to state and national champions playing with and learning from each other.
Winter sports at Emma features basketball, indoor track and field, ski racing, and—new this year—winter crew. At the end of their season, the teams took some time to celebrate their successes and present awards. We invite you to learn about our stand-out student athletes from their coaches’ perspectives.

Spring at Emma Willard School is always a marvelously busy time.

Last week, we added another celebration to the mix as we acknowledged the accomplishments of our 118 Spring athletes and coaching staff.
