Don't listen to what some people say about the lesser rigor of liberal arts colleges- you'll have to work hard to earn any A's you get here! The academics are tough but are also designed to expose you to greater world issues and invite you to make connections between disciplines to solve problems.
Emily from Fleetwood, PA
wheaton college has been referenced as an ivy league private liberal arts college, and rightly so. wheaton's academics are unmatched in the category of small christian liberal arts colleges.
Daniel from Wheaton, IL
It is occasionally joked that Wheaton is the Harvard of Christian schools. While I cannot tell of the rigor of Harvard for comparison, I can say that almost every class at Wheaton gave heavy amounts of homework and had very high standards.
Amanda from WA
Its a different type of homework in college than you have in high school. You really have to understand the material to be able to do well in a class. Do your reading homework and come prepared to discuss it in class. The class size are small enough for everyone to participate and the professors encourage that.
Victoria from Gaithersburg, MD
Before I attended Wheaton College, I had heard that it was considered the Ivy League of Christian colleges. I believe this to be true in every category of learning and highly recommend this school for those who want to experience an academically rigorous environment, while also learning from teachers who provide grace and understanding during your college years. Wheaton has a perfect balance.
