About Scripps College

When Scripps was founded in 1926 in Claremont, California, it was one of few institutions dedicated to educating women for lives of commitment and engagement. Since then, Scripps has continued to champion qualities of both mind and spirit in accordance with the vision of its founder, newspaper entrepreneur and philanthropist Ellen Browning Scripps. Scripps today offers a rigorous interdisciplinary curriculum, a robust intellectual community, a commitment to diversity and inclusion, and a rich residential experience designed to shape the next generation of leaders.

As an internationally recognized leader in women’s liberal arts education, Scripps has an increasingly competitive admissions process that reflects the growing demand for a Scripps education. The College has garnered numerous prestigious national grants for student and faculty research, curriculum development, and educational initiatives, and has established a reputation for thoughtful leadership among higher education peers. Scripps students win many national fellowships and research grants and offer the skills employers value and society needs: strong critical thinking, written and oral communication abilities, a global orientation and intercultural competence, and the ability to collaborate effectively.

Campus information

Scripps College is a member of the prestigious Claremont Colleges, a consortium comprising five undergraduate institutions: Claremont McKenna, Harvey Mudd, Pitzer, and Pomona Colleges; and two graduate institutions, Claremont Graduate University and Keck Graduate Institute.

Each of The Claremont Colleges is an independent institution with its own student body, faculty, campus, and distinctive mission and identity. Together, the schools form a rich intellectual network with myriad benefits for students, faculty, and staff: joint academic programs, cross-registration in courses, a two-million-volume library, student bookstore, health and counseling services, chaplains offices, and recreational facilities, among others. 

Scripps’ 32-acre campus is listed in the National Register of Historic Places and is widely recognized as one of the most beautiful college campuses in the world. The College is regularly featured as one of “America’s most beautiful college campuses” in national publications, including Forbes, Princeton Review, Business Insider, and Travel & Leisure magazine.
