INTERVIEWS

We value the opportunity to connect with applicants and their families, and we look forward to our conversation! Interviews take place on weekdays and are 40 minutes long. The interview includes about 20 minutes for the applicant to speak one on one with someone from the Admission Office or a faculty/staff member, followed by a conversation with parents/guardians. There’s nothing to prepare for; we’re just excited to meet you!

Harvard-Westlake begins interviewing applicants in October.

More details about interviews will be available in August 2021
