Class of 2017: The College List

Members of the Class of 2017 had an extraordinary year in college admissions. Over 90% of the class will attend a college ranked in the top 10% in America and 100% of the graduating class was admitted to a selective four-year college or university—including such prestigious schools as Stanford, Columbia, Dartmouth, West Point, Williams, Wellesley, Smith, Johns Hopkins, Berkeley, UCLA, Northwestern, U of Chicago, Middlebury, Tufts, Haverford, and Carleton, along with multiple acceptances to The Claremont Colleges, NYU, and USC. We even have our first student going to the highly selective Yale University NUS program in Singapore!
 
In fact, with over 400 acceptances from over 150 different college and universities, all 104 of our soon-to-be Webb graduates should be very proud of their achievements! At a time when competition to get into the best colleges is so fierce, it is truly remarkable that this class has been blessed with so many outstanding acceptances and final college choices.

  • The Week @ Webb - Theme Week Edition

    Scott Nichols
    The Week @ Webb is a unique look into the activities both on and off Webb's campus. This past week was our annual class spirit event called Theme Week. Each grade level dresses up in the announced theme for four days to gain points for their respective class. At the end of the week, each of the classes performs a skit that will also count towards their overall point total. It's a hilarious week for students and faculty alike, so I hope you enjoy some of the standout costumes and images I collected in this gallery.
