Wellesley College in Massachusetts
Wellesley College’s 500-acre campus is dotted with stunning brick and stone buildings rising from wooded hills. The view opens to an inviting vista through pine trees to the shores of Lake Waban. Home to outstanding academic and recreational facilities, extraordinary architecture, an art museum, observatory, meadows, and woodlands, it is the perfect setting for our Pre-College Program. The picturesque location is only enhanced by the College’s belief in the transformative power of curiosity, learning, and teaching — a belief we share here at EXPLO. The campus is a short walk from Wellesley Square, a lively downtown area teeming with restaurants, shops, and cafes. Just a few miles away are Boston and Cambridge, home to world-class colleges and universities that create an educational ecosystem that is known the world over as a global innovation hub.
