Application Information

To apply for Exploratory Workshops please complete the Summer Online Application. 

Parents/Guardians and Students: In order to apply you will need to create an account before you can access the application. Please be sure to create only one account per applicant. Once you have created an account, you will then be able to fill out the application.  Make sure that you choose “Exploratory Workshop” as the Program of Study when starting the application.

All Pre-College Exploratory Workshop Applicants will need to submit the following items:

Admission is on a rolling basis until all spaces in the program have been filled; therefore, students are encouraged to apply as early as possible. Although the program focuses on girls and young women, all genders and gender identities are welcome to apply.

Once all application materials have been submitted, the Summer Office will review the student's application and render a decision. If deemed necessary, the Director of Summer Programs may conduct a telephone interview with the applicant.

Email is the primary form of communication during the application and enrollment process.  Please ensure both parent and student emails are entered correctly on the application.

Students and parents with questions should contact the Summer Office by emailing or calling 781-283-2200. 

Enrollment Requirements

When a decision has been made the student and parent will receive an email with further instructions on how to do the following:

  1. Pay the Program Deposit
    Admitted students must pay the $500 program deposit to confirm their space in the program. The final deadline for the program deposit is June 24, 2020.
  2. Set up MyWellesley and SchoolDoc Account
    Once students have paid their deposit, their MyWellesley and SchoolDoc accounts will be activated (two separate accounts.) Students and parents will be sent emails with detailed instructions for setting up these accounts. In these accounts, students will be able to submit enrollment and health documents, apply for an international Visa, pay tuition, and check their email. We recommend students forward their email to their personal email to ensure nothing gets lost.
  3. Complete Enrollment Documents
    Students will be responsible for completing enrollment documents by June 29, 2020. These items will be made available through the MyWellesley Portal and the SchoolDoc Portal.
  4. Submit Health Record
    All residential students must adhere to the Massachusetts Health Requirements. Once students have paid the program deposit, they will be added to our SchoolDoc Health portal where they can securely submit documents.  More details about Health documents can be found here.
  5. Workshop Registration
    Students are automatically registered for the workshop of interest that they indicated on their application. If you would like to change your workshop registration, you must contact the Summer Office at
