Prospective students and families can learn more on our website about our two sessions and four unique and engaging programs in Paleontology, Science and Engineering, Digital Arts and Global Ethics.

We are excited you have decided to apply to Webb Junior Scholars. Our priority deadline is March 15th. We will begin reviewing applications after the priority deadline and you will receive your admission decision shortly after that date. Following this deadline, applications will be accepted on a rolling basis.

Once you have submitted your application, you have access to the online portal where you will be prompted to upload a transcript or school report and a teacher recommendation. The recommendation form will be available in the online CampInTouch portal.

As we continue to receive more qualified international applicants, we are partnering with Vericant and Duolingo to assist with conducting language screening interviews. Students attending school in a non-English speaking country are required to complete a Vericant interview (available in China) or a Duolingo test (available everywhere). Students who have attended at least one year at a school where the primary language of instruction is English are exempt.

In accordance with the Los Angeles County Public Health Department’s guidance for schools and HIPAA privacy rules, our nurses will follow established procedures for community notification. When the Health Center receives notification of a positive/suspected case of, or close contact to COVID-19 in our Webb community:

Notice is sent to any student/family who has been on campus during the same time frame as the infected person. This notice will share basic information, but not specific details, and will remind families that if their student had possibility of close contact (from contact tracing information), they will be notified separately.

For those on the same team/activity as the infected person but without close contact, nurses will send additional communication with instructions to monitor for emerging symptoms. This notice will share additional details about possible exposure.

Anyone identified as a close contact to an infected person will be contacted directly by a Webb nurse, instructed to contact their primary care physician, arrange for a PCR test and quarantine until negative results are received.

Webb is required to report any positive COVID-19 test to the Los Angeles County Public Health Department within one business day of being notified if the person had been at school any point in the 14 days prior to becoming ill.

No notice will be sent to students/families who have not been on campus.

As always, the Health Center team is here to support you – please reach out if you have any questions or concerns: healthservices@webb.org.
