Westinghouse High School can be joined with the Homewood Children's Village Charter School.[]

The Homewood Children's Village (HCV) is a service organization that operates “wrap around services” that include after school programs and sports team sponsorships. The HCV charter school application is pending in 2014 and classes could begin as soon as fall 2014 for students in grades 6 and 7. The HCV charter school would grow through the years to span from grade 6 to 12.

Providing the HCV with pool access could benefit Westinghouse and PPS students. Other HCV aquatic plans are pending. The HCV could sponsor city-wide water polo teams.

In 2014, a Westinghouse Middle School swim team came to life, coached by Westinghouse teacher, Carl Goldman.

In 2013, more than 50 students in the 3rd grade at Faison swam as part of Summer Dreamers.

Water polo was played at Westinghouse in an after school program, once per week in 2011-12 school year.
