Southwestern Academy, Los Angeles County:
Founded in 1924, Southwestern Academy is a private, college preparatory boarding and day school for boys and girls in grades 6 through 12. Our high-quality classes are based on the University of California's a-g entrance standards. We have students from all around the world who benefit from Southwestern Academy's small classes, active student body and challenging educational program. We offer students the opportunity to study at either of two distinctly different and beautiful campuses.
Southwestern Academy is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and is approved by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement, U.S. Department of Homeland Security for attendance by international students.
We offer three intensive levels of English as a Second Language "ESL", to all our international students. Our focus is on Grammar, Composition, Conversation and Listening skills.
In addition to these classes, our ESL students can choose to take an elective. Once they reach our advanced level, then they will be immersed into Math and Science classes. We prepare students for entering American Universities, by teaching English at the university level.
We provide a wide range of electives that satisfy the diverse interests of our students, including but not limited to: art, flash animation, computer literacy, creative writing, photography, music, drama, speech, video editing, choir and chamber groups.
