Webb’s Class of 2022 will matriculate to the top colleges and universities around the nation, including Stanford, Yale, Duke, USC, Brown, Columbia, Cornell, Dartmouth, University of Michigan, University of Chicago, University of Pennsylvania, Amherst, Johns Hopkins, all the Claremont Colleges, UC Berkeley, UCLA, UC Davis, UC Irvine and UC San Diego.
For the 25th consecutive year, 100 percent of the class was admitted to a four-year selective college or university.
“We are extremely proud of our Class of 2022, which exemplifies Webb’s focus on achieving the remarkable in their high school careers and beyond,” Dean of College Guidance Hector Martinez said. “We focus on finding colleges that are the right fit for our students, to ensure their college careers are as enriching and fulfilling as their time at Webb. This year, that goal brought them to some of the most extraordinary schools in the world.”
Indeed, the 98 graduates posted the most Ivy League and Stanford acceptances since the classes of 2016 and 1999 – with 91 percent of students applying to a top tier college and 87 percent admitted. In all, 97 percent of students are attending one of their top choice schools – the highest percent in recent history.
One Vivian Webb School graduate was admitted to MIT, Caltech and Stanford, eventually choosing Stanford.
Of the top 50 colleges in the U.S., Webb students were admitted to 44. Thirty-five students report receiving merit aid from at least one college.
For students who submitted test scores – which was optional this year – the average SAT was 1500 and the average ACT was 34.
