Learn About Wheaton

Ranked by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top national liberal arts colleges in the nation, Wheaton attracts exceptional high school students from all 50 states and more than 50 countries.


Since 1860, Wheaton College has sought to offer an inclusive community, focused on academics and committed to faith.  It is woven into our history: Wheaton has consistently been at the forefront of accepting students as they are, from its first days as a stop on the Underground Railroad, until today, with students from all 50 states and over 50 countries. 

Wheaton has also been a place of impact.  As students pursue truth; as they become whole, well-rounded individuals; as they deepen their faith – students become prepared to impact the world, both during college and after it. 

Wheaton College is distinctive because of its unyielding dedication to scholarship and discipleship, but also because the community here is passionate, fun-loving, and engaged.  Living and learning at Wheaton is an enlivening and transformational experience.
