Class of 2019

Admission into a selective four-year college or university today is difficult. The odds sometimes appear overwhelmingly slim. What does it take? Ask any member of the Class of 2019 and they will tell you that when things get tough, you have to get tougher! Once again, an impressive 100 percent of Webb seniors were admitted into selective four-year colleges—the vast majority to multiple colleges, and over 90 percent of the class to colleges ranked in the top 10 percent in the nation.
 
Included on this list (below) are outstanding national liberal arts colleges and world famous universities, many claiming a 10 percent or less admit rate, some below 4 percent. Certainly you need grit, determination, and dedication in this pursuit. These are all traits members of this senior class have in abundance. We congratulate our soon-to-be graduates of the Class of 2019 on their outstanding achievements throughout their Webb experience, including these acceptances into some of the best colleges and universities across the country and around the world!
