Alumni Families Join Summer Junior Scholars Program
More than a dozen alumni families (well their 7th, 8th, and 9th graders) are taking part in Webb’s Junior Scholars Program this July. From as close as Los Angeles and San Diego, to as far away as Hong Kong and Thailand, children of alumni are enrolled in one or more of four special educational boarding programs on campus: Paleontology, Leadership, Digital Arts or Science and Engineering.
As Session One comes to a close, the highlights worth sharing are many. Students took part in a variety of field trips as part of the academic day, ranging from Warner Brothers Studios to joining a research vessel with the Long Beach Marine Institute, from studying at the California Science Center and Natural History Museum to completing a tough ropes course.
Afternoons and evenings were full of fun, too. Students enjoyed pool parties, putting on a talent show, a night at the observatory, a Quakes baseball game, and much more. This year Session 1 ran July 8-17. Session 2 runs July 19-28.
Join the conversation. The Spring/Summer issue of WEBB Magazine is in the mail and on its way to you. In it we explore Webb’s new innovative curriculum—an educational experience being talked about across the country. From the newly invigorated core curriculum that includes The American Idea and Evolutionary Biology, to the ONLY AT WEBB series of Honors and Advanced Studies courses featuring Advanced Studies in Biotechnology and Honors Ethics & Modern Global Affairs—the Webb program is engaging students in field study and independent research work like never before.
The Webb Schools is pleased to offer a live stream for both the Vivian Webb School and Webb School of California Commencement Ceremonies on June 2, 2018. The events are available below, and will be concurrently streaming on Webb's Facebook page as well as the schools' Livestream.com page.
