Westtown Academic Summer Courses
Our Summer Academic program is designed to give high school students the opportunity to create flexibility in their academic course schedule. They can get ahead on fulfilling graduation requirements, continue studies in an area of passion, or do both! Some online courses are also available. The majority of these offerings are credit-bearing courses that fulfill graduation requirements. The courses are taught by our own talented and dedicated Westtown faculty, or professionals in their field – and sometimes both. From Biology to World Religions, there is a variety of courses offered this summer. Learn more about course offerings and registration here.
