Welcome to Westlake!
The Path to Success Starts at Westlake
At Westlake Preparatory School & Academy, we pride ourselves on being one of the premier private K-12 schools in South Florida. Our customized curriculum allows us to offer three unique academic pathways to ensure our students’ success.

At Westlake, quality of instruction is our top priority. Our educational methodology combines traditional classroom lecture with an academic mastery teaching format – a combination that has proven highly successful in developing academic and social growth in our students. We are committed to the core business of teaching, learning and knowledge.
Westlake Preparatory School, Summit Program and Westlake Academy are each designed to teach the value of self-discipline, respect, personal responsibility and compassion – the foundation for our motto, “Education and Integrity is Strength.” Brought together, these clear and consistent objectives have proven to be a winning combination.
Our students are encouraged to not only grow academically but to gain respect for their own abilities. We want each student to recognize the importance of applying their skills to improving not only their own lives, but the lives of those around them.
We are a uniformed school.
At Westlake, we’ve found that school uniforms raise students’ expectations of themselves. When dressed neatly and seriously, students tend to behave seriously. Often teachers find calmer, more polite, more attentive students. Students seem to feel more confident in the way they look, and so they have more confidence in themselves.
What makes Westlake different?
When you visit Westlake for the first time, you will immediately take notice.
It might be talented, inspirational teachers, taking extra time to help a student after class. It might be the buzz of excited conversations you’ll hear in our hallways, where the sounds of a multi-cultural and vibrant student body resonate throughout the day. You will see students of all ages interact in a positive way with each other and you’ll see the kindness and caring for others. You’ll hear it, and you’ll see it, all around you.
Most importantly, you’ll feel the difference here at Westlake!!
You will see curiosity unleashed, you will see self-pride, self-confident students in a safe and caring environment. The understanding that what takes place at Westlake is special and doesn’t happen anywhere else. At Westlake, you’re family.
