Wellesley College Academic Summer Programs

  • University Collaborator

NSHSS handpicks its partners carefully, searching for colleges and universities that directly align with our mission to provide the best resources for our members and their families. We may receive compensation from our partners, at no cost to you. 


Wellesley College is known for the excellence of its education, the beauty of its setting, the integrity of its faculty, and the uniqueness of its campus culture. 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.

Summer Programs for High School Students

Wellesley College’s four-, two-, and one-week programs provide high school girls (entering grades 10-12) the opportunity to live and study at an elite liberal arts college set in the classically New England town of Wellesley, Massachusetts, just outside of Boston.

Students enjoy a balance of scholastic and social experiences in a safe, academically challenging, and culturally inclusive environment. They 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. 


“Wellesley’s Pre-College Program is a great way to experience independence and build your self-confidence because there is such an incredible community of people.” 
-Virginia | Pre-College Program 2018
