Whittier College

Founded in 1901, Whittier is recognized as one of the best small colleges in the USA. It is roughly one hour by bus from downtown Los Angeles and within easy reach of major attractions such as Hollywood, Disneyland, Universal Studios and beautiful beaches. Whittier has an attractive campus and fantastic weather.

The college offers 10 well-equipped classrooms and a contemporary multimedia center. The campus has a bookstore, library, cafeteria, snack bar and computer center. Students will also have the opportunity to use some of the college's sporting facilities including the newly remodeled swimming pool.

Whittier College uses a set of teaching materials specially designed for younger learners, covering subjects that will appeal to that particular age group. Our skilled and friendly teachers will ensure that all their lessons offer learners a diverse mix of activities and maintain their interest levels throughout the course. Lessons are divided between an integrated skills syllabus and project work on various aspects of American life and culture.
