Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, applicants are not required to submit SSAT or ISEE test scores during the 2021 admission cycle. The Webb Admission Team will continue to conduct a holistic review of each applicant, including academic achievements, activities, and interests.
An English-language proficiency test is required if your primary language is not English, and you have not been taught primarily in English for the last two years of school in a fully English-based curriculum. We only accept scores that come directly from the testing organization.
The Webb Schools accept the following English-language proficiency tests:
While not required, we strongly recommend that applicants complete an interview. The interview lets us get to know you and helps ensure that Webb is a right fit.
- Prospective student interviews last about 20 minutes and are hosted on Zoom by a member of the Webb Admission Team.
- Families are welcome to chat with the Admission Team member at the end of the interview and ask any questions they might have about Webb.
Schedule your interview by January 15, 2021, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
