About Wheaton College

Wheaton College has been noted for its academic standard: over 95% of our faculty hold terminal degrees, we have a top 25 liberal arts science department, and we are ranked 9th out of 900 liberal arts colleges for the number of graduates who go on to earn doctorates.  This holds little significance, however, unless it is tied to our guiding motto: For Christ and His Kingdom.  Through everything we do, we seek to discover Christ’s kingdom in our midst, and in the world around us.  We are a community dedicated to learning, loving, and serving.  A community of grace.

Wheaton College is an explicitly Christian, academically rigorous, fully residential liberal arts college and graduate school located in Wheaton, Illinois. Established in 1860, Wheaton is guided by its original mission to provide excellence in Christian higher education, and offers more than 40 undergraduate degrees in the liberal arts and sciences, and 14 graduate degrees.

In addition to its intrinsic value, a Christ-centered liberal education from Wheaton College also has many practical outcomes and benefits that most graduates reap over a lifetime of faithful service in the church and gospel witness to the world.



Campus information

Only a five-minute walk to downtown Wheaton, and a 30-minute train ride to downtown Chicago, as a student at Wheaton you can enjoy the benefits of life of a college town, and you'll be only a train ride away from the third largest city in the United States.

Other college-owned campuses include the 50-acre Wheaton College Science Station near Rapid City, South Dakota, for field studies in geology, environmental science, and biology; and HoneyRock – Outdoor Center for Leadership Development of Wheaton College in northern Wisconsin.

The city of Wheaton was established as a small railroad community in the late 1850s. It is now home to 55,000 residents and variety of shops and restaurants.


At Wheaton College, we believe that what happens in the classroom is just one aspect of the unique educational experience provided by living on campus. The residence life experience — from making a home together in campus housing to enjoying our award-winning campus dining together — and the Christian community you join here will enhance your learning and growth outside the classroom in unique ways.
