Welcome To Webb
I invite you to explore the possibilities that await you here at the Webb Schools. Our academic program and our connected community provides the optimal environment for students to thrive! We’re located in the heart of Southern California, close to Los Angeles and the Claremont Colleges, which makes Webb a vibrant place to live and study.
Webb students are challenged to push boundaries, take intellectual risks and develop into moral leaders, while being nurtured in a community that encourages deep learning and care for others. We celebrate diversity of thought and encourage students to be themselves. Our students come from all over the country and the world, eager to contribute and learn from each other, inside and outside of the classroom. Our hands-on-learning opportunities prepare students to think critically, solve tough problems and serve with a generous spirit. Now more than ever, our students are inspired by our mission of thinking boldly, mindfully and creatively!
As you begin your high school application journey, please feel free to reach out to me or any member of the Webb Admission Team. We’re happy to answer any questions you may have about our programs and our admission process. Sign up for a student-led virtual tour, participate in one of our online information sessions, or have your parents attend one of our informal Coffee and Conversations events with the Webb community!
Please know that during this extraordinary time, with many uncertainties and challenges, our team is here to personally guide you. We look forward to getting to know you and your family while learning more about your interests and goals. We’re here to assist you in discovering the match between you and the Webb experience! I hope you will join our community of innovators, leaders and unbounded thinkers.

"Our Webb community is so strong, everyone supports and respects each other, causing students to feel more comfortable being themselves. When I went home during breaks I began to realize that I missed Webb so much and felt so at home there."
Favorite Thing At Webb: The connections I have been able to form with my fellow Webbies outside of the classroom.
Class of 2022
Given the availability of testing during COVID-19, applicants are not required to submit test scores during the 2021 application cycle. Webb will evaluate applications without the SSAT or ISEE scores while continuing to conduct a holistic review of each applicant.
Webb is a college-preparatory boarding school with a challenging curriculum, so we seek students with demonstrated academic achievement. Additionally, as an honor-bound community, we welcome students with strong character and a desire to be actively involved with peers, faculty and staff.
Webb is a boarding community that admits a limited number of day students in the 9th, 10th and 11th grades. Families wishing to apply for a day space must live in one of the prescribed day-area cities at the time they submit the admission application. A prospective day student must reside within one of the following cities: Alta Loma, Azusa, Claremont, Covina, Fontana, Glendora, La Verne, Montclair, Mount Baldy, Ontario, Phillips Ranch, Pomona, Rancho Cucamonga, San Dimas or Upland.
Students check-in for breakfast by 8:15 a.m. Classes begin at 8:30. Students have a mid-morning break to go to meetings, assemblies or chapel and a 40-minute lunch period mid-day. Classes end at 3 p.m. on most days. After class, students participate in our afternoon program from 3:35 to 5:15 p.m. Dinner begins at 6 p.m. and study hours are from 7:45 to 10 p.m.
Our primary admission year is grade 9, but we will also consider applicants for grades 10 and 11. We typically do not accept applications to enter grade 12.
All parts of the online application must be completed before it can be submitted. Our deadline for application submission is January 15.
In rare cases, Webb will admit a student mid-year. Examples of this may be a work-related transfer for the candidate’s parent.
*Given the availability of testing during COVID-19, applicants are not required to submit admission test scores during the 2021 application cycle. Webb will evaluate applications without the SSAT or ISEE scores while continuing to conduct a holistic review of each applicant. International applicants are required to demonstrate language proficiency.
All students applying for grades 9 or 10 must take either the SSAT or the ISEE. Grade 11 applicants may submit PSAT, SSAT or ISEE scores.
It is required that non-native English speakers take a language proficiency exam. Webb accepts the TOEFL, IELTS and Duolingo. Please see the Application Process for more information.
Webb’s SSAT code is 8080. Our ISEE code is 50600. Please mark this on your test to ensure that we receive scores directly from the testing organization.
Interviews are strongly recommended but not required. Interviews for the 2021 admission cycle will be conducted online.
A brief visit to a class is part of our regular campus tour, but students generally do not shadow a full class. To learn more about our curriculum, we encourage applicants to visit the campus for our Discover Webb or Parent Information Night events.
*Currently we are unable to accommodate visitors on campus. Please view our Visit page for Virtual Opportunities.
In rare cases, we will consider an applicant who wishes to repeat their current grade. Families can make the decision to repeat a year only in consultation with the Director of Admission.
Webb welcomes home-schooled students to apply by submitting the necessary application materials and test results, including full description of the curriculum, methods of assessment and any organization that might have oversight authority for the candidate’s program. Recommendations are encouraged from facilitators outside the family, if available. Further questions can be directed to the Office of Admission.
Admission decisions will be available online on March 10 through the applicant’s online account. Candidates must access their account using their username and password.
