Outstanding Early College Admissions for Class of 2017
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.
The following colleges and universities offered one or more early acceptances to members of the Class of 2017:
Babson College MA Boston College MA Boston University MA California State Polytechnic University Pomona CA Carleton College MN Claremont McKenna College CA Colorado College CO Colorado School of Mines CO Columbia University NY Emory University GA Fordham University NY Haverford College PA Indiana University IN Johns Hopkins University MD Lehigh University PA Loyola Marymount University CA Marymount California University CA Mills College CA New York University NY Northwestern University IL Occidental College CA Pitzer College CA Pratt Institute NY San Diego State University CA Santa Clara University CA Savannah College of Art & Design GA Smith College MA St. Johns University NY St. Louis University MO Texas Christian University TX Trinity University TX Tulane University LA University of Arizona (Honors College) AZ University of Colorado Boulder CO University of Denver CO University of Hartford CT University of Illinois Urbana Champaign IL University of Massachusetts Amherst MA University of Michigan MI University of Oregon (Honors College) OR University of Pennsylvania (Wharton) PA University of Texas TX Vanderbilt University TN Williams College MA
Amara Berry ’12 truly embodies what it means to think boldly, mindfully and creatively. In October 2017, she was invited to give a Tedx Talk in Providence, Rhode Island, where she spoke on the legacy of her grandparents, how their work inspired her and the incredible work she is doing with our youth through The Sparkle Program.
We are pleased and excited to announce the appointment of Jennifer Liu as Webb’s Director of Parent Relations and Special Events effective November 1. In this position, Liu will oversee our parent relations program, which serves more than 750 current parents worldwide and an active volunteer network through our Affiliates parent organization.
An opportunity to pick the brain of award-winning author John Scalzi '87, is not one you want to miss. Discussing topics ranging from what exactly defines a burrito to what projects he currently has in production, there's never a dull moment with Scalzi.
For Webb sports fans who can’t attend a game, or if you’d like to follow along with the live stats and scores from our athletic contests, most of our home games will be covered live with video and play-by-play at The NFHS Network.
To learn more about working in independent schools and meet with school representatives about open positions, please join Webb and 30 other participants on Saturday, February 23 from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm at Harvard-Westlake School in Studio City.
