School Life

Day Student Experience

    • boarding school

      Residential faculty Gemma Halfi and her family make students feel at home at Emma.

The students really appreciate being a part of the communities that we create, which are essentially like little families.
Day students make up 40 percent of Emma’s campus community. They are immersed in every aspect of the Emma Willard School experience.

Each day student has her own centrally located locker. Day students enjoy the dining hall for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and often stay late to work with friends on projects and study sessions. They are also assigned to a residence hall where they benefit from our Wellness Advocate and Proctor support network and get to know girls from around the world.

Friendships formed between our girls make it nearly impossible to tell who is a day student or boarder. Day students are always welcome to stay overnight with friends, participate in evening and weekend events, and host boarding friends for a home-cooked meal or sleepover.
