What is Discover@Wheaton?

Discover@Wheaton Summer Program is designed to give rising junior and senior high school students a taste of a competitive private liberal arts college experience. During this hands-on program, students will sample the rigors of college academic life by participating in a course taught by college level instructors.

What makes it different?

Wheaton College is an institution known for its close-knit community, small class sizes, and personal approach. Discover@Wheaton follows this model.  Classes are taught by Wheaton’s finest professors, not teaching assistants or graduate students. Thus, students will interact and build relationships with top-notch professors who are experts in their fields of study. Furthermore, this year’s “Innovation and Social Change” course will be taught by none other than Wheaton College President Dennis Hanno!
