Wellesley College invites rising high school junior and senior girls to join us this summer for a unique college experience—The Wellesley Pre-College Immersive Program.


Four-Week Immersive Program:  July 7 - August 1, 2019


In Wellesley's Pre-College Immersive Program, students become members of the Wellesley community, taking courses with college students while earning full college credit. Taught by renowned Wellesley College faculty, students enroll in one required writing course and one unique elective course. Past elective courses have included:

Can We Have An Argument? Understanding, Employing, and Delivering Effective Rhetoric 

Imaginative Leadership: Women's Cultural Expressions in Latin America 

World Politics 

Introduction to Calculus I



In Wellesley's Immersive Program, students also enjoy academic, social, and intellectual opportunities that cannot be found in a regular high school program. During the four-week program, students reside in a historical residential dorm, with access to Wellesley dining and amenities. Unlike many other pre-college programs, Wellesley College offers the invaluable opportunity to experience a small, all women, liberal arts environment while participating in weekend activities which allow them to explore Boston and its surrounding areas.

Out of all the features of Wellesley’s Immersive Pre-College Program, participants usually reflect on their own growth over the four weeks spent at Wellesley. 2018 Program participant Lea reflected: "I think my favorite thing is the confidence I’ve gained here. My voice is heard here and I learned that I can be myself." 



Wellesley College has been recognized for the excellence of its education, the beauty of its setting, and the uniqueness of its campus culture. Above all, Wellesley is known for the thousands of accomplished, thoughtful women it has sent out into the world—women who are committed to making a difference.

Applications for Wellesley’s Immersive Summer Program are OPEN until May 15, 2018. To learn more about Wellesley College and its Immersive Summer Program, please visit http://summer.wellesley.edu/summerprograms/immersive
