For generations, young women have come to The Ethel Walker School to embrace their full potential in a community that cherishes learning and curiosity.
In an ever-evolving world, Walker’s prepares students to design their own futures and be ready to boldly encounter career and civic challenges that are not yet known. In every arena and as shaped by our Capabilities program, school life focuses on the acquisition of skills such as critical thinking, communication creativity and collaboration leading to individual success.
At Walker’s you will become part of an empowering community where girls lift each other up and forge lifelong bonds. Opportunities for peer-to-peer leadership are abundant throughout campus life.
Experiences and challenges that motivate girls to achieve their best happen in all aspects of school life. Walker’s girls confidently forge their own paths and lead with integrity.
- Unlike the typical pressure-cooker model of an independent school, Walker’s provides an empowering and uplifting community in which each girl is encouraged to understand and then exceed her full potential.
- Seminars like Ethel Walker’s Visiting Writers Seminar (which allows students to interact with a female author as lecturer and seminar leader ), Lacuna (a mid-winter break from traditional classes replaced with teacher and student-taught mini classes) and our Capabilities program all provide a more engaging and customized approach to learning.
