Emma Willard School
- Private School
- Troy, NY
Senior: Emma Willard has a rigorous academic program that gave me plenty of opportunities to develop as a student and a person. There are plenty of resources on campus for academic help, whether it be through student tutors or the teachers themselves, who are often available during study hall. The students I learn alongside are some of the most intelligent, and have pushed me to become the best I am today.
The student body's awareness of social justice issues is also remarkable. In response, Emma has held events and discussions revolving around these issues, resulting in profound and rewarding conversations that I am grateful for.
I will say the lack of diversity in faculty is somewhat disappointing, considering the wide range of diversity among students. Additionally, the dining options have become redundant, having been a boarder for a few years here.
Overall, Emma Willard provides students with many fantastic opportunities—so long as you're willing to take advantage of them.

Augustine Classical Academy
- Private School
- Mechanicville, NY
Alum: I loved the passion for learning that was fostered there. We were always challenged to think deeper, and I gained a great appreciation of philosophy and politics and social justice from discussions we always held in class. Everyone put in 100 percent of their effort to help out (because we were a small school), and we would create beautiful theater sets, or energetic sports teams, or a killer mock trial group though everyone getting to know each other and committing to working hard. The teachers cared so much about you as a person, and would have actual conversations with you.
