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 a.m. - 10:45 a.m.    Period 1
10:50 a.m. - 12:35 p.m.  Period 2
12:35 p.m. - 1:15 p.m.    Lunch
1:15 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.      Period 3

On Fridays, classes will meet for 90 minutes and lunch will be extended. The pool will be available on Fridays for swimming.

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 begin at either 9:00 a.m. or 10:00 a.m. and span five or six hours. Be sure to check the class details regarding specific program times.


Late afternoon programs are only provided on the Upper School Campus. After camp Yoga will run until 5:00 PM. Check out the schedule in the Wolverine Sports Camps section to learn more. If a late afternoon program is not available when your child is participating in one of our programs, you will need to pickup your child at the end of the program.


Once you have chosen the courses and programs, you will need to complete the enrollment process. Once registration opens, you will be able to 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. Checks should be made out to Harvard-Westlake School. 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.


If you would like to register for a class that is full, you will be give the option to be placed on the waitlist if there is a waitlist for that particular class or program.


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 has enrolled in Harvard-Westlake Summer. Thus, there is a $60 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 $60 non-refundable registration fee, provided you withdraw by May 20, 2020. After May 20, you will receive a full refund, less the $60 non-refundable registration fee, provided you withdraw at least 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.


Lunch is available beginning June 10 and ending August 2, and lunch is included in tuition. Lunch will be served from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. only. Students can choose a regular lunch, vegetarian lunch, or gluten free lunch. (The linked menus are for summer 2019. We are currently updating the menus for summer 2020 and will add them as soon as they are ready.) Students choose one lunch type (regular, vegetarian, or gluten free) during the registration process. If your child requires a different lunch option, your child may bring lunch each day. Students who wish to change their lunch type must inform the summer office at least one week before beginning their program. Please review the menu options above.

Lunch is offered to any three hour or longer program spanning the lunch hour as well as the second period classes. Lunch is provided for programs that occur on the upper campus or the middle campus.

If lunch is not included in your child's registration and you would like your child to have lunch, please contact our office directly.


Drop off and pickup procedures will be emailed to you approximately one week before each class begins. On the first day, be sure to arrive early. Follow the signs and directions by our staff when you arrive.


Each Friday at the upper campus and the middle campus, lunch will be extended and the pool opened for anyone who wishes to swim. There will be a lifeguard on duty. This is an opportunity for recreational swimming; no swimming lessons will be offered during this period. If your child does not want to swim, the pool deck will open for relaxing, and there will be opportunities to play on the field or relax in the lunch area.


The grade level for each course is the grade the student will enter in September 2020.


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 by Harvard-Westlake Summer, and it provides transportation services for children.


Please note that the libraries and bookstores on both campuses will be closed for the entire summer unless specified in the particular program.


Each year, Harvard-Westlake Summer welcomes students from all over the world. If you are an international student and want to attend, please know that we encourage your participation in all our programs. You must be able to secure any required visas or travel documents on your own. Also, please be aware that our classes are taught only in English and your English skills must be at the advanced or college prep level.


If you need a receipt with our tax ID number for a summer registration, please login to your campbrain account. You are able to access your account statement which has the tax ID number on it.
