Once again, according to the Boarding School Review, Webb is in the top tier of boarding schools in the United States in four important categories. Webb is ranked in the Top 20 nationally in selectivity, highest average SAT scores, student diversity and student attention(faculty/student ratio)—alongside much older and established East Coast peers such as Andover, Exeter, Deerfield, Groton, St. Paul’s, Hotchkiss, Taft and others.
“Beyond these statistics, however, Webb offers so much more. Two strong schools for boys and girls on one campus. Our commitment to honor and moral courage in our day-to-day lives. Our amazing Alf Museum. Our college guidance program. Our unbounded, innovative curriculum designed by our faculty and available nowhere else. And on and on. Really, as we look toward The Centennial, the future has never been brighter for Webb,” said Taylor Stockdale, Head of Schools.
Webb finds itself in such prestigious company based on the following: an admit rate below 25 percent, an average SAT over 2000, student diversity of 41%, and a faculty-student ratio of 1 to 7.
“I’m so proud of our faculty and staff for making these amazing results possible, and so much more,” said Stockdale.
Sponsored by the Robert ’53 and MeiLi Hefner Foundation and offered here at Webb to two current students, The Hefner Initiative aims to foster a close and positive relationship between the people of China and the US. This extraordinary 12-day summer program includes travel this year to Beijing and Suzhou—allowing for living/learning opportunities with host students and families.
