WISE Summer Program

Whittier College invites high school students who are entering grades 11-12, high school graduates, and pre-college students to join us for our Whittier International Student Enrichment (WISE) Summer Program.

This 4-week program—designed for students who plan to pursue a four-year education at any college or university—will help you:

  • gain competitiveness into universities and college admission;
  • develop your English writing skills;
  • learn how to prepare and excel for an interdisciplinary academic program; and
  • gain valuable experience in a post-secondary classroom. 

For many students, this will be your first time on a college campus, and for some of our international students, your first time living abroad. Here, at Whittier, we hope to ensure our success in every aspect of learning - as students, and as members of our community.
