Harvard-Westlake’s excellence relies on the quality of its student body. To that end, Harvard-Westlake supports a robust financial aid program to attract and enroll the best students in Los Angeles regardless of their ability to pay full tuition and costs. About 20% of Harvard-Westlake students receive financial aid. Financial aid at Harvard-Westlake is comprehensive; all students on aid receive supplemental help that includes books, all course-related materials, athletic team-required clothing and equipment, school-related trips, and an account for use at the school bookstore and cafeteria. Students on aid are also eligible to apply for funds to cover academic study travel, leadership work, and other programs. All aid is need-based, determined by a family’s income and assets compared to the full cost of attending Harvard-Westlake.
