Description

Part of the highly respected Claremont college system, Scripps College is an all-women’s private school in Claremont, California that offers rigorous academics and a unique inter-college system on a scenic campus.

Majors offered at Scripps include Art Conservation, Classics, Economics, Gender and Women’s Studies, Music and Writing. Science offerings are also numerous and include everything from Astronomy to Environmental Science to Neuroscience.

Since Scripps is part of a network of other private colleges including Pitzer and Claremont-McKenna, students may also pursue a major or single courses offered at one of the other schools if it isn’t offered at Scripps.

The Scripps environment is a picturesque one. Tree-lined streets and historical buildings, which resemble those of an old New England college, are set in the middle of the charming town of Claremont.

The Scripps student life offers such cultural experiences as an on-campus art gallery and performing arts center. Clubs and organizations range from a knitting club to a marine biology club to an environmentalist group to a science fiction organization.

Within 45 minutes of Claremont there is the cultural hub of Los Angeles, where museums, theatres, film-related events, restaurants and other activities abound.

Highly competitive, Scripps College generally only accepts women who have a high GPA and are top-ranking in their class.

Financial aid is awarded based on such factors as financial need and scholastic merit.
