Each dorm has a faculty member assigned as the dorm head. This faculty member resides in or next-door to their assigned dorm. Dorm heads oversee the dorm program, conduct weekly dorm meetings and are the senior adult in charge in case of emergencies. Upperclassmen also play a critical role in helping new students adjust to life at Webb. All students can readily turn to a senior student leader, known as a dorm prefect, who is available to help with a whole variety of situations from providing study-break pizza to lending a sympathetic ear.
Webb is a boarding community that admits a limited number of day students in the 9th, 10th and 11th grades.

The Webb Schools are committed to fostering an inclusive school community characterized by openness, acceptance and empathy, where all members are valued, respected and supported. Our community is strengthened by the diverse views, beliefs, backgrounds and experiences of our students, faculty, staff and alumni.
Embracing diversity in all its many forms is essential to our mission: in particular, our call to provide an exemplary learning community that nurtures future leaders who will act with honor and moral courage, and serve with a generous spirit.
Webb is committed to hiring a diverse faculty and staff as part of this commitment. We partner with Nemnet Minority Recruiting, So CAL POCIS, AXIS and the Southern California Diversity Recruiting Fair as part of this commitment.
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.
Webb’s 10 dormitories house about 250 students in 40 double rooms and 170 single rooms. Four dorms serving Vivian Webb School include 22 double rooms and 77 singles. Six dorms serving Webb School of California include 18 double rooms and 93 singles. Most of the double rooms are located at the Mary N. Hutchinson Center and Dormitory, which has a dorm for both WSC and VWS, each with 15 double rooms. Many of Webb’s first-year students live in one of the Hutches. Learn more on our Dorm Living page.
Webb has an extensive support system to help students make the transition to boarding school life. Each student is assigned a faculty/staff advisor. There are approximately eight students for every advisor. Advisors and advisees meet weekly and build very strong relationships. Advisors monitor student progress in three main areas: academics, extra-curricular activities and residential life. Also, all new students are assigned a Peer Advisor who helps with meeting people and becoming integrated into the community. This is in addition to our extensive program of oversight for our dorms and Webb’s Health Center, which provides professional counselors.
