Wellesley's one week Pre-College Exploratory Workshops are recommended for domestic high school women entering 9th to 12th grade. Explore one topic of interest in a non-credit, workshop-style course designed to give you a quick taste of college life.

Course choices include writing, leadership, math, science, gender studies and the arts. In your chosen workshop, you’ll attend lectures alongside a small group of motivated young women, gaining exposure to a specific area of academic interest.

Along with your classes, you'll live in the dorms and develop friendships with students from around the country. A variety of group social activities are planned to introduce you to Wellesley College and campus life. Exploratory Workshops are open to both commuter and residential students.
