For over 125 years, service has been at the heart of Wheelock College's mission. Lucy Wheelock founded the school in 1888 as a commitment to Boston's low-income immigrant families, launching the kindergarten movement and early childhood education nationally. While our central mission of improving the lives of children and families is still at the core of all we do, Wheelock's undergraduate and graduate academic offerings have grown dramatically to include a range of innovative arts and sciences majors, as well as outstanding professional preparation in the fields of education, child life, juvenile justice, and social work.
