HOW IT WORKS
Harvard-Westlake Summer is divided into five different program areas: North Faring Exploration, Coldwater Prep, Summer Film, Debate LA, and Wolverine Sports.
Students who enroll in North Faring Exploration or Coldwater Prep choose up to three different classes. The day is divided to allow for an immersive experience. Here is the schedule:
9:00 - 10:45 Period 1
10:50 - 12:35 Period 2
12:35 - 1:15 Lunch
1:15 - 3:00 Period 3
During free time, students can hangout in the quad, spend time with their friends, and relax. Harvard-Westlake prides itself in giving students free, undirected time, and we encourage summer students to enjoy it as well.
Students who enroll in Summer Film, Debate LA, and Wolverine Sports will have an immersive experience in that one area. Most programs span an entire day (9:00 - 3:00). Be sure to check the class details regarding specific program times.
Once you have chosen the courses and programs, you will need to complete the enrollment process. Click on the registration tab. You will be directed to our on-line enrollment forms. If you are a current Harvard-Westlake student with an active student account, you may bill your account if you provide your Student ID Number. If you do not have an active Harvard-Westlake student I.D./account number or do not wish to have your account billed, you must pay the full value of tuition before your child will be enrolled in any course or camp. Payment may be made by check or credit card. Because we purchase books and materials as well as secure teachers based on enrollment, full tuition is due upon registration and spaces will not be held without payment. Registrations for open courses will be accepted up to the first day of the class or camp.
The grade level for each course is the grade the student will enter in September 2017.
REFUNDS, TRANSFERS, WITHDRAWALS
Harvard-Westlake is a school of limited enrollment and makes advance arrangements for the accommodation, materials, textbooks and instruction of each of its students who enroll in Harvard-Westlake Summer. Thus, there is a $65 non-refundable registration fee required from each student.
If you withdraw from a class, camp, or program, you will receive a full refund, less the $65 non-refundable registration fee, provided you withdraw more than one month before the start date of the class, camp, or program. No refund will be made for withdrawals later than one month before start date of the class, camp, or program.
Tuition is not prorated due to absence or late entry. Transfers between courses are allowed when space is available. Immediate payment is required for any incremental monies due based on course selection differential. No transfer credit is given for selection of a course which costs less than the original choice. Harvard-Westlake Summer reserves the right to cancel a class, camp, or program. A full 100% refund will be made for such cancellations.
Please note that the Libraries and Bookstores on both campuses will be closed for the entire Summer unless specified in the particular program.
Lunch is available beginning June 19 and ending July 28, and lunch is included in tuition. (Lunch will be available for some sports camps during the week of June 12.) Lunch will be served from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM only. Students can choose a regular lunch, vegetarian lunch, or gluten free lunch. Because we preorder food from our food service vendor, students will be asked which type of lunch they would like.
Lunch is offered to any three hour or longer program that spans the lunch hour as well as the second period classes.
During the summer program, Harvard-Westlake does not offer bus service. For parents who need transportation services, you may contact Hop, Skip, Drive. Hop, Skip, Drive is a separate, non-affiliated, unendorsed company from Harvard-Westlake Summer, and it provides transportation services for children.
If you register for a class that is full, you will be placed on a wait list.
