Troy, New York, USA
All Girls, No Religious Affiliation
Emma is the oldest, non-denominational girls’ boarding school in the United States. Situated in Troy, New York, Emma Willard School is home to over 320 amazing young women, ages 13 to 19. Girls have come to Emma from more than 40 different countries, making Emma Willard School a diverse and welcoming community of learners, athletes, artists, and leaders.
Our founder, Emma Hart Willard, challenged the barriers in American girls' education in 1814, and nearly 200 years later her spirit lives on in every Emma girl. Girls here find ways of belonging and interacting with the world that transcend race, religion, background, and culture. We say our girls are "cosmopolitan" in that they are truly comfortable anywhere.
