Students from all over the world come to Emma Willard School to pursue their passions and curiosities, and to be nurtured by our caring faculty to develop the qualities of leadership to serve and shape their worlds.

Our program is designed for such a time as this. From academics to life on a residential hall to the playing fields, our program is centered around three pillars: Intellectual Flexibility, Purpose & Community, and Equity & Justice.

To be on Mount Ida is to feel rooted in history and elevated by a sense of possibility. This extraordinary home provides the space for our students to learn and grow—to expand their own horizons.

The Emma Fund

Our world is constantly changing and requires the type of leadership that is at the heart of the Emma Willard experience. We are preparing the next generation of women who will lead with purpose.

To continue this tradition, a strong Emma Fund is vital to our continued success and allows us to strengthen our mission to educate girls to serve and shape their world. The Emma Fund provides increased opportunities in athletics, academics, and service learning. Your support provides a robust financial aid budget to enroll the best and brightest students. In addition, our faculty are provided the classroom resources they need to excel, competitive salaries, and increased professional development opportunities.
