Thank you for your interest in
Emma Willard School where each girl can be herself.
Be her best self.

Whoever you are—or dream of becoming—Emma will inspire your curiosity, intellect, creativity, and passion. At Emma, you’ll be encouraged to discover your own voice and use it to make a difference in the ways that matter most to you.

If you haven’t already had the chance, consider scheduling a visit to campus to meet some of the girls who call Emma home.
