Harvard-Westlake is strongly committed to enrolling the most talented student body in the Los Angeles area. We realize that a Harvard-Westlake education, while an excellent investment in your child’s future, can also be a daunting one.  We’re here to help make it feasible.

Tuition Value

Even though we believe that Harvard-Westlake offers opportunities that are second to none, we work hard to keep our tuition second to many.  In fact, it consistently ranks below the median of other leading independent day schools, both locally and nationally.

Payment Flexibility

Nonetheless, HW tuition remains a significant expenditure, even for relatively well-to-do families.  We smooth the way via a comprehensive array of payment options, ranging from annual and semi-annual to quad-pay and monthly.

Helpful Spirit

Harvard-Westlake pay plans are managed in-house rather than through outside providers.  This allows them to be run efficiently and to bear service fees sufficient only to cover our costs.  More importantly, it allows parents to deal with Student Accounts staff who are long-time members of the Harvard-Westlake family and who are focused first and foremost upon students and their education.  Our relationships with parents are close, personal and supportive.
