Thank you for considering Harvard-Westlake! Our admission process for entry into the 2020-2021 school year will begin officially in late August 2019. Additionally, our admission event dates for the fall and winter will be posted online in August. If you are interested in attending an admission event or applying to Harvard-Westlake, please fill out the online admission inquiry form. We look forward to getting to know your family. 

From here, you can:

Parent Coffees

The admission office hosts weekday Parent Coffees throughout the fall at the Middle School and the Upper School. These information sessions are intended for parents of prospective students applying for admission in 2020. You will have the opportunity to hear from the director of admission, faculty, deans, students, and current parents. Optional student-led tours of the middle school or upper school campus are available.
