The California Scholarship Federation (CSF) is a nationally recognized academic and service organization at West High that connects high-achieving students with exciting opportunities for volunteering and tutoring. 

For the first semester of 2016-2017, the club's 279 members participated in more than 100 individual volunteer events, totaling more than 3000 hours of service to the South Bay and beyond. In addition, more than 40 elementary and middle school students throughout West Torrance benefited from our one-of-a-kind tutoring program during the first semester alone. 

For Spring 2017, the club has grown to a record-breaking 350 members.

While the majority of West High clubs are closed to new members after September, CSF welcomes new members every semester who qualify with 10 points in academic classes and satisfactory citizenship (with some exceptions). For a low, flat rate of $10 per semester, you too can reap the benefits of CSF membership:

  • Higher standing in college admissions, especially with multiple, consecutive semesters of membership
  • Access to a network of high-achieving students who share your ambitions and interests
  • Valuable experience through a diverse selection of community service activities
  • Most importantly, CSF REWARDS, our brand new incentives program that pays it forward to our most dedicated members
