Programs for High School Students

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT

Wellesley College's senior administration recently determined our campus will remain closed to the public and to outside guests to protect our community of students, faculty, and staff. As a result, we will not be running our Pre-College Summer programs in 2021.

We often say Wellesley's Pre-College Summer Programs are an experience and a place that transform you. We considered alternative methods to deliver the powerful messages our instructors want to share with you; however, the many restrictions brought forth by the pandemic impact how we can effectively create an optimal experience. We hope to find innovative ways to come together again soon. Until then, we wish you health and safety during this extraordinary time.

 


 

Discover what's possible 

Summer. It's the season for discovery, exploration, and growth. It's the perfect time to find out how you can succeed and thrive in ways you have yet to imagine.  

If you are a motivated young woman entering grades 9-12, we invite you to find out what it is like to experience college life.
Enjoy a balance of scholastic and social experiences in a safe, academically challenging, and culturally inclusive environment. Take thought-provoking, undergraduate-level courses from data and mathematics to college writing. Connect with college staff, explore the Boston area, and form friendships with women from around the world.
