The Wheaton College Summer Institute is a Great Value

For the price, the Wheaton College Summer Institute is one of the best values you'll find for a college summer program for high school students. Unlike other pre-college programs, we offer an affordable, residential and in-person, distinctly Christian program, taught by faculty experts. 

The WCSI is the premiere Christian pre-college summer program for high school students. You will live on the campus of Wheaton College with other outstanding high school students from around the world, take college-level classes from expert teachers, attend campus seminars and lectures, receive leadership training, and participate in worship and other spiritual development activities. Some courses also include a weekend retreat at HoneyRock in Wisconsin and/or day trips to the city of Chicago.

Your experience at the Wheaton College Summer Institute will help you:

  • Prepare for college. Take a college-level class, attend evening lectures and concerts, and experience life in the residence halls.
  • Learn from Wheaton College faculty and expert teachers alongside students from around the world.
  • Explore your academic interests or discover new ones. Choose from an exciting menu of courses.
  • Grow in your faith. Learn about Christ-centered higher education, participate in worship, and join a Bible study or prayer group in your residence hall.
  • Receive guidance for applying to college and completing the Common Application and applying to Wheaton.


The total cost for the Wheaton College Summer Institute is $XXXX.00. This includes:

  • Two week's stay in a Wheaton College residence hall
  • 38 meals in our top-ranked dining commons
  • One college-level course with our renowned faculty and associated college credit hours
  • Support from our knowledgeable staff for every part of your college application journey
