Programs for High School Students

In One Wellesley Summer, motivated young women in their junior or senior year of high school will experience college life in an academically challenging and culturally inclusive environment.

Summer​@​Wellesley offers young women the opportunity to take stimulating classes from data and mathematics to college writing courses – invaluable for self-exploration and college preparation – and even a selection of undergraduate classes, all taught by full-time Wellesley faculty.

Whether enrolled in our four-week Pre-College Residential Program or a One-Week Workshop, students will enjoy a balance of academic and social experiences. From trips to Boston to evening barbeques and movie nights, the program is structured to provide students an opportunity to become part of the Wellesley community, to connect with college staff and form friendships with women from around the world.

Everything is possible in One Wellesley Summer.
