The Sister Schools

College Admissions Profiles

The Seven Sisters were originally founded between 1837 and 1889 as historically women’s colleges. Initially including Barnard, Bryn Mawr, Mount Holyoke, Radcliffe, Smith, Vassar, and Wellesley Colleges, the grouping lost two members as Radcliffe merged with Harvard and Vassar became coed. Now, the schools are simply referred to as “The Sisters.” Each school, though operated independently of one another, share similar goals of providing an elite education for women.
