Outstanding Early College Admissions for Class of 2017

Hector Martinez
The Class of 2017 is off to a great start with outstanding college admission acceptances for many of our early candidates! Some of America's most sought after colleges and universities have delivered some very happy news to our seniors right before the holiday season begins. Once again our students are faced with tremendous selectivity and what feels like outrageous competition both nationally and internationally, especially to those schools with the greatest name recognition like the Ivy League and "Junior Ivies.” With such odds, even the most well prepared students are feeling the pressure. So, it’s good to see the senior class coming together and being so supportive of each other during what can be a stressful time of year for them. The Webb Schools are very proud of all of our seniors. Students may be hearing from additional schools during the holiday break. Please check back after the holiday for an updated listing.
