Superintendent's Welcome

Thank you for your interest in Westlake Academy, 

If you are perusing our web page, I am sure you know that Westlake Academy offers an educational experience that is second to none! As one of the few schools that provides the K-12 International Baccalaureate continuum, we are very proud of the success of our students and teachers.


We keep our vision before us of creating a school experience that “…inspires college-bound students to achieve their highest individual potential in a nurturing environment that fosters the traits found in the IB Learner Profile: Inquirers, Thinkers, Principled, Balanced, Caring, Knowledgeable, Communicators, Open-minded, Risk-takers, and Reflective”.


The commitment to this path is evident as soon as you arrive at the school. Our on-campus educational teams are comprised of top-notch teachers and administrative staff who work together to ensure that each child is given the opportunity to reach their educational goals. We further support the students through our broader network of parents, volunteers, grandparents, affiliate groups, and community partners in order to create a robust and rigorous environment found at the Academy.


In keeping with the unique educational aspects of the school, we are further distinguished through our Charter designation as an open-enrollment public school. We are owned and operated by the Town of Westlake and receive a broad base of shared services from the municipal staff teams that provide the support necessary to help the school be successful. We also have a governance structure that is committed to excellence as our Town Council members serve in a dual role as the Board of Trustees for the Academy. While the importance of this may not be apparent, all of these systems work together in a seamless manner, which allows us to provide an outstanding campus, excellent teaching staff, experienced administrative teams, and a dedicated governing board.


If you are considering Westlake Academy for the first time, my hope is that you will explore all we have to offer your child in a rigorous curriculum and extra-curricular activities. If you currently have children at the Academy, please know that we are honored you have chosen us to help educate your student and prepare them for the future.


Please let me know how we can serve you and your children,

Amanda DeGan
