The Centennial

In 1922, Thompson Webb founded The Webb Schools in the rolling foothills of Claremont, California. Over the last 100 years, we’ve seen the timeless values first embedded in the Webb School of California tested and reaffirmed, the establishment of the world-class Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology (1936) and the founding and flourishing of a singular and extraordinary Vivian Webb School (1981). Always more than the sum of its parts, The Webb Schools continue to thrive today, an educational powerhouse like no other. Learn More
