Boarding Student

Involvement: Equestrian Team, Grapes, WINGS, Theater

“Hi! My name is Kipley and I entered Walker’s as a freshman boarder. I think being a Cicerone is a great way to add a more personal touch to the Admission process by giving families a way to learn about the school from someone with firsthand experience on how it currently runs. It also allows connections with prospective students and give them a ready-made ally upon arrival at the school, which is something i believe is extremely important as starting high school is monumental for everyone. I want to let prospective students know about all of the unique traditions and things that make Walker’s such a special sisterhood.”

“Hi, my name is Maya! I was admitted to Walker’s in the eighth grade. Walker’s is a very welcoming school no matter your background. I came from a public school and from the beginning, I found a sense of community at Walker’s. I have been able to get to know all my classmates and be comfortable in participating in classes. Besides academics, Walker’s has also offered me the possibility to do extracurricular activities. For example, in a public school I would have never had the chance to represent my school as a Middle School Ambassador. I think it is important to have these chances because it gives students a way to work on important life skills such as public speaking, leadership skills, and social skills. At Walker’s you can see many of these opportunities whether it’s clubs, sports, Big Sister or Middle School Ambassador.”

“As a freshman, I entered a new environment of The Ethel Walker School. The experience of a new school, new environment, new town, society, and for some even a new state may be very stressful, however my first days at Walker’s were all but stressful. I was entering the school with a huge feeling of a relief that I found a place that was just perfect for me: warm and welcoming, making me feel confident and eager, challenging me and providing academic nourishment. All these positive feelings did not come from reading about the school or doing online research; these were ignited by the Walker’s Cicerone during my in-person visit. The Cicerone was super friendly, welcoming, well-spoken, and well rounded. She was very patient with my questions and helped me understand that Walker’s is truly special and cares for each and every one of us. Now, it is my turn to answer all questions and make the potential new students feel like they are joining a caring family and help them make the right choice.”

I have a very clear understanding of what emotions transpire when transferring, entering, or leaving any school — I’ve been there. In fact, I was quite ambivalent about my enrollment at Walker’s, but frankly, I think that’s what makes me a great Cicerone. Now I can clearly see that I have gained so much more than I could have ever imagined due to attending an all-girls school. My duty as a Cicerone is to explain how Walker’s in particular has been the main reason I have received more than an education. I am beyond excited to represent our school as a Cicerone and strive to realistically give prospective students a glimpse into our lives here.”
