Whittier College

The peaceful city of Whittier lies just south of Los Angeles and offers all the charm of a small town, with coffee houses, farmers'markets, cinemas and bookshops. And yet it is only 12 miles from the centre of Los Angeles with its larger than life attractions: experience the energy of Malibu Beach and Sunset Strip and the glamour of Hollywood and Rodeo Drive.

Our school is based on the campus of Whittier College, a renowned independent four-year college with a vibrant campus community. Students have use of the extensive college library, a performing arts centre and a multimedia centre with internet access. There are great sporting opportunities too: the college has an athletics field, tennis courts, a swimming pool and gym.
