An intimate, collaborative women's college community

To think clearly and independently, and live confidently, courageously, and hopefully…these were the goals for Scripps women in the words of our founder, Ellen Browning Scripps. While students are seriously challenged here, they’re also supremely supported. Studying among strong and sure-minded women, you’ll become even more confident in your abilities. You’re also highly likely to connect with kindred souls and find friends who will stand by you. Here, it’s not about competition, it’s about community.

Exciting educational and extracurricular opportunities in a larger, coed setting

Scripps is a member of The Claremont Colleges consortium, a design inspired by the University of Oxford system. Within one square mile, you have an abundance of resources, facilities, and activities. Students have over 65 majors and 2,500 classes to choose from, as well as access to countless five-college (or “5C”) clubs, organizations, and social events.

A small college town near a big city environment

Claremont is everything a college town should be: small yet upscale, chock-full of college students and quaint shops, and located a 10-minute stroll from the Scripps campus. Yet downtown Los Angeles is just 35 miles away, with its concert venues, museums, and world-class attractions. The Metro commuter train runs directly from Claremont into downtown LA, providing a direct link to a vibrant, urban community.
