The Ethel Walker School

Lead by inspiring. Or creating. Or competing. Whatever path you choose to forge or follow, The Ethel Walker School will prepare you to walk it—and to lead with integrity, courage, confidence and conviction.

Here, you will discover your individual strengths – academic, athletic, and artistic - and receive the personal attention and community support to advance them to their highest levels. You will live, learn, and create treasured memories with girls from across the country and around the world. Your teachers will also be your coaches, dorm parents, mentors and your greatest champions.

Our gorgeous 300-acre campus in Simsbury, Conn. features top-flight athletic facilities, an on-campus equestrian center, two theaters, and an observatory. We’re just two hours to Boston or New York City. Come experience Walker’s, and our students’ many paths to leadership and achievement.
