Our Campus, Our Town

 

Situated in Westlake Village, our modern 18-acre campus is surrounded by the stunning natural beauty of Southern California: oceans, mountains, and deserts. We are adjacent to Los Angeles, the second largest city in the country and a culturally rich and diverse metropolis. Both the city and the great outdoors provide unmatched learning opportunities. 

Beautiful Westlake Village

Ensconced in the northern foothills of the Santa Monica Mountain Preserve in western Los Angeles County, the City of Westlake Village is nine miles inland from the Pacific Ocean and 38 miles west of downtown Los Angeles. It is consistently ranked as one of the best places to live in Southern California.

Abutting Ventura County, Westlake Village is a tranquil community of award-winning neighborhoods, fine and eclectic dining, upscale and funky shopping, parks and golf courses, thriving businesses, and, of course, the lake itself. It is a stone's throw from the Thousand Oaks Civic Center's with its cultural and entertainment offerings, and the prestigious Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in nearby Simi Valley. 

 

 

The Great Outdoors

It is just a short drive from our campus to many of the beautiful Southern California sites, such as the famous Malibu State Beach, the historic mission towns of Santa Barbara and San Diego, the world-renowned Santa Monica Pier, rugged Santa Catalina and the Channel Islands, Big Bear Mountain, Mojave National Preserve, and Lake Arrowhead. A little further north is the renown Hearst Castle, Pebble Beach Golf Course, the scenic 17-mile drive, and the California redwoods and sequoias. Iconic Palm Springs is just to the east. Snorkeling, rock climbing, kayaking, hiking, lava tubing, mountain biking, and surfing are just a few outdoor adventures many of our students enjoy on retreats or field trips.

Arts, Culture, and Entertainment

Being so close to metro Los Angeles creates tremendous opportunities in the world of arts, culture, and entertainment. Students can intern at film and television studios, such as Sony and Paramount, attend distinguished speaker series, visit the Broad Museum, The Getty Villa and the Getty Center, Disney Concert Hall, The Hammer Museum and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and well over 100 others. Industry professionals often speak at master classes in the arts, as well as in engineering and global leadership. Los Angeles is home to many ethnic neighborhoods, such as Chinatown, Olvera Street, Korea Town,  Little Armenia, Little Ethiopia, and Thai Town, bringing the world to our doorstep.
