Meet Wellesley: Our New Collaborating University Partner 02-06-2017
Wellesley College is known for the excellence of its education, the beauty of its setting, its gifted faculty, and the uniqueness of its campus culture. But most of all, Wellesley is known for the thousands of accomplished, thoughtful women it has sent out into the world for over 100 years—women who are committed to making a difference.
Every year, some 2,400 of the world’s top undergraduate women are challenged to exceed their own highest personal and intellectual expectations. The mastery Wellesley graduates demonstrate across the professional and vocational spectrum, and the influence they wield—whether in their own communities or on the world stage—is testament to a singularly empowering undergraduate experience.
Wellesley’s lively academic community places a high value on rigorous, probing inquiry, and creative, cross-discipline thinking. Its collaborative approach to scholarship encourages students to question, debate, and refine their points of view, not only with each other, but with our world-class faculty—often by working directly with them on groundbreaking projects.
A Wellesley education fosters the highest standard of readiness for the “real world” in its graduates, in terms of ability to think, act, and contribute meaningfully and effectively in their chosen areas of interest. And now, in addition to the traditional undergraduate summer term Wellesley College is offering academically motivated high school women a Pre-College Residential program where they will have the chance to experience college, take classes and make new friends.
Commitment to Women
Everything about Wellesley College bespeaks its commitment to women, and to providing them with an unequaled educational experience that honors and cultivates not only what is best about each of them, and their own potential, but about what women offer our world.

About Wellesley’s Pre-College Residential Program:
Wellesley College invites motivated female high school juniors and seniors to join us this summer for a unique, immersive college experience—The Wellesley Pre-College Residential Program. For four weeks, students will have the opportunity to become members of the Wellesley community, taking courses with college students while earning full college credit. Students will also enjoy academic, social, and intellectual opportunities that cannot be found in a high school program. Wellesley College will select two NSHSS members to receive a tuition fee discount of 50% (valued at $2,600.00).
Looking for a Pre-College experience, but not ready to stay for four weeks? Wellesley College also offers a Pre-College One-Week Intensive Program. Designed for rising sophomore, junior and senior female high school students, these one-week residential programs offer a taste of college life. Students can study writing or math/data while experiencing a college campus, making new friends and participating in fun group activities.
