Associated schools

Mount Holyoke contributed to pioneering efforts in behalf of women’s education through its alumnae who established new schools in the United States and around the world.

The following guide identifies many of the institutions that are associated with Mount Holyoke College through alumnae who served as founders, principals, administrators or teachers. Information about some of these institutions is available in Archives and Special Collections, and it can often be found in biographical files for individual alumnae.Brackets are used around the name of an institution when its official name is unknown. The "x" before the class designation for an alumna indicates that she attended but did not graduate from Mount Holyoke (because opportunities for higher education were so limited during the nineteenth century, many women found that even one year spent at Mount Holyoke prepared them for work as teachers). Whenever possible, the dates of each alumna's service are given.
