Since 1926, Scripps has championed women’s education in accordance with the vision of its founder, newspaper entrepreneur and philanthropist Ellen Browning Scripps.
Located in the heart of California’s Claremont Colleges, our modern approach to a liberal arts education is rigorous and comprehensive, providing our students with expert knowledge, critical thinking, analytical, and communication skills to challenge assumptions, think independently, and navigate their careers and lives with confidence. A Scripps education isn’t about what our students can do. It’s about making sure that whatever they do, they do it with intention.
“The mission of Scripps College is to educate women to develop their intellects and talents through active participation in a community of scholars, so that as graduates they may contribute to society through public and private lives of leadership, service, integrity, and creativity.”
