This Is Elms
Elms College is a modern part of a living tradition established over 300 years ago by the Sisters of St. Joseph — a bold group of devout, progressive changemakers. We are dedicated to providing a rigorous education animated by a community where all are welcome. Religious or non-religious, we’re all on a journey to understand and maneuver the bigger world. We believe education is not an end in itself, but a path to discovering what we can each contribute to that world, our neighborhood, and one another. Your Story Begins Now.
