Williston Scholars

The Williston Scholars program is a college-model course that introduces students to the rigors of directed independent study. A trimester-long course, the program allows students to deeply engage with a topic he or she is passionate about in any discipline. Under the close mentorship and instruction of a Williston faculty member, students and classmates are guided through the steps of scholarly project development, research, implementation, and, ultimately, presentation—skills they will need to succeed at the college level. Throughout the program, students connect with content experts both inside the school and out, drawing on the intellectual wealth available to us here in the Pioneer Valley's colleges and universities.
