For more than 100 years, The Ethel Walker School has been preparing young women to make a difference in the world. At Walker’s, we seek to foster and cherish the joyful development of girls into young women so that they may reach their full potential as astute thinkers and doers in the world. Our grounding values of integrity, respect, confidence, courage, conviction, and love of learning provide a solid framework for personal, ethical, and social growth.
Our grades 6–12 plus postgraduate education serves not only as preparation for college, but for life itself in this century of constant change. Walker’s graduates, whatever field they pursue, are societal engineers, reworking and rewiring the very mechanisms of our world. Our ethos of warm receptivity to new ideas and people, as well as enduring and deep friendships over time, emerges out of Ethel Walker’s philosophy of education and her desire to provide girls with a foundation for lifelong learning and intellectual curiosity.
At Walker’s, girls can be themselves, discover their true passions and purpose, and achieve their best performance in every aspect of life.
