Webb is a college-preparatory boarding school with a challenging curriculum, so we seek students with demonstrated academic achievement. Additionally, as an honor-bound community, we welcome students with strong character, and a desire to be actively involved with peers, faculty, and staff.
Webb is a boarding community that admits a limited number of day students in the 9th, 10th, and 11th grades. Families wishing to apply for a day space must live in one of the prescribed day-area cities at the time they submit the admission application. A prospective day student must reside within one of the following cities: Alta Loma, Azusa, Chino, Claremont, Covina, Glendora, La Verne, Montclair, Mount Baldy, Ontario, Phillips Ranch, Pomona, Rancho Cucamonga, San Dimas or Upland.
A student enrolling as a boarder may not later become a day student. International students must enroll in our boarding program.
All students applying for grades 9 or 10 must take either the SSAT or the ISEE. Grade 11 applicants may submit PSAT, SSAT, or ISEE scores.
It is required that non-native English speakers take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). If the TOEFL is unavailable, International English Language Testing System (IELTS) scores will be accepted.
Webb does not accept the SAT, SLEP or other similar examinations in place of the above.
Interviews are a required part of the application process. It is to the student’s advantage to visit campus for this interview, but a webcam interview may be possible. Applicants can also interview with an admission officer if he/she is visiting the candidate's region.
A brief visit to a class is part of our regular campus tour, but students generally do not shadow a full class. To learn more about our curriculum, we encourage applicants to visit campus for our Discover Webb or Parent Information Night events.
Webb welcomes home-schooled students to apply by submitting the necessary application materials and test results including full description of the curriculum, methods of assessment, and any organization that might have oversight authority for the candidate's program. Recommendations are encouraged from facilitators outside the family, if available. Further questions can be directed to the Office of Admission.
