More than two hundred years ago, our school was founded by a woman who was determined to map uncharted territory. With this groundbreaking campaign, we honor—and extend—the legacy of Emma Hart Willard. Infinite Horizon: The Campaign for Emma Willard School is a watershed moment in education: the largest known campaign for an independent girls’ secondary school in American history.
Campaign Goal: $175 million
Our goal is $175 million, yet Infinite Horizon is about much more than that groundbreaking number. It’s about preparing new generations of students to wrestle with vast new challenges. It’s about giving more bright students access to an exceptional education. It’s about freedom and flexibility, creativity and opportunity, history and innovation—for our students, for our teachers, for our school.
This fall saw the beginning of a year-long lineup of connection events, bringing alumnae, parents, and friends together to hear stories of student impact and details of the plans for Emma Willard School's future.
Honoring its founder’s vision, Emma Willard School proudly fosters in each young woman 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.
