For more than 200 years, Emma Willard School has celebrated girls’ intellectual curiosity and drive to make their mark on the world. Our founder, Emma Hart Willard, pioneered girls’ education, taking it from focusing on “the charms of youth and beauty” to intellectually stimulating and rigorous courses in mathematics, geography, history, science, and philosophy.

Emma Willard School continues to proudly foster in each of our girls a love of learning, the habits of an intellectual life; and the character, moral strength, and qualities of leadership to serve and shape her world.
