Westinghouse College Prep (formerly known as Westinghouse Area Voc High School) is a public 4-year college preparatory high school located in the East Garfield Park neighborhood on the westside of Chicago, Illinois, USA. It is operated by Chicago Public Schools. Westinghouse opened in 1960.
Westinghouse was originally housed in a former candy factory. That building was designed by Schmidt, Garden and Martin in 1920 and was one of the largest examples of the Chicago School architectural style. It was converted to a high school building in the 1960s.
Westinghouse competes in the Chicago Public League (CPL) and is a member of the Illinois High School Association (IHSA). For many years an area basketball powerhouse, Westinghouse has produced four NBA players: Mark Aguirre, Eddie Johnson, Hersey Hawkins, and Kiwane Garris. The school won the Illinois Class AA Boys' Basketball Championship in 2002.
