Since 1869, the Wilson College mission has been the education and development of our students. Our Women with Children program is a contemporary expression of our mission, addressing the needs of women today.
The program provides family-friendly on-campus housing year-round to single mothers and their children (20 months and older) so the mother can pursue a bachelor’s degree full time.
Mothers in the program are full participants in campus life, including such activities as soccer, modern dance troupe, Spanish Club, the Curran Scholars Program, student government and yearbook. Within the Women with Children Program itself, enrichment and development activities range from parenting workshops and alumnae mentoring to Hershey Park trips.
Our 300-acre campus features a farm, creek, equestrian facility and playground, providing opportunities for children to explore and learn. The Wilson College Child Care Center offers on-campus care for children age 20 months through 5 years.
The Women with Children program gives mothers access to higher education that can open doors to a more fulfilling, economically self-sufficient life. It’s all part of Wilson’s culture of women helping women.
