Emerson Preparatory School is Washington's oldest coed college preparatory school.
Founded in 1852 by Charles B.
Young, and named after Dr. George Barrell Emerson, the noted New England educator and Harvard professor.
Emerson Institute as it was then known, originally prepared Washington boys exclusively for entrance to Harvard.
Following the Civil War, Emerson's program was broadened to prepare young men, and later in1920, young women, for all American and foreign colleges and universities.
Over 95% of its students typically enroll in institutions of higher education immediately upon graduation.
Located in Washington D.C., Emerson is only minutes from the Metro Red Line stop at Dupont Circle.
In the heart of the nation's capital, Emerson affords unique opportunities to explore the vast resources available in the many museums, libraries, and other scholarly institutions.
Emerson's compact, dignified building houses comfortable classrooms, a well-equipped science lab, and Internet accessible computers.
