Plan Ahead for Admitted Student Days

Choosing a college is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make, and we want to assist you in any way we can. Now that you've been admitted, you likely have thought of new questions to ask.

Westmont Admitted Student Days gives you an opportunity to get the information you need to choose a college. Look at Westmont through a different lens as you learn what it means to belong to this community academically, spiritually and socially.

Pre-College Programs

Westmont Summer Scholars

Join us this summer, June 19-July 7, 2017, at Westmont Summer Scholars for three weeks of learning, growth, new friends and fun. You’ll experience college-level academics and complete a four-unit Westmont General Education course. The small class size and seminar-style learning gives you close interaction with your professor and fellow students.

You’ll also experience college life as you stay in a residence hall, eat in the Dining Commons, enjoy Westmont’s great recreational facilities and explore the beautiful Santa Barbara region. You'll receive expert guidance on the college search and application process from experienced admissions professionals.

We hope you’ll join us this summer!

Trailhead: Seeking God's Call

A true calling draws all of yourself–your gifts and passions, your intellect, your concerns for the world–into God’s service. But how do you discover what God is calling you to do?

Join us at Trailhead, a new program for high school youth ready to embark on a life of significance. Led by professors from Westmont and Fuller Seminary with support from the Lilly Endowment, Trailhead helps you envision a future for yourself that connects to God’s work. During a two-week summer residency at Westmont, you’ll explore questions of faith and learning, encounter real-world needs, and discover more about who you are. Afterwards, yearlong mentoring by Trailhead professors and partners in a local church helps you apply what you’ve learned and begin to discover your calling.

Where will your trail lead? Come explore with us, June 26-July 8, 2017.
