Harvard-Westlake Summer offers the chance to learn what makes Harvard-Westlake special. Participants can experience our renowned programs in academics, visual arts, performing arts, film, debate, and athletics.

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 academic and arts enrichment classes. Students who enroll in Summer Film, Debate LA, and Wolverine Sports will have an immersive experience in that one area. 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. Further details about the schedule can be found in the general information section of our website.

OUR FACULTY

Harvard-Westlake Summer takes great care in hiring teachers and coaches. The overwhelming majority of teachers and coaches work at Harvard-Westlake during the academic year. They are full and part time teachers, coaches, adjunct faculty, and lecturers who are eager to share their expertise with our summer students. When a faculty member is hired for the summer only, that candidate is vetted by the same process as academic year faculty. Rest assured, your summer faculty will give you a true Harvard-Westlake experience.
