collective name for two private schools in Claremont, California
The Webb Schools is the collective name for two private schools for grades 9-12, founded by Thompson Webb, located in Claremont, California. The Webb School of California for boys was established in 1922, and the Vivian Webb School for girls in 1981. Both are primarily boarding schools, but they also enroll a limited number of day students. The Raymond M. Alf Museum of Paleontology is a part of The Webb Schools.
The schools share a campus of approximately 150 acres (610,000 m2) in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains. In 2018, Webb purchased undeveloped land next to the existing campus and will now preserve the hillside and create a buffer between the campus and suburban development. There are 410 students and 57 faculty members, of which 25% hold doctorates, 80% hold advanced degrees and 74% live on campus (as of the 2018-2019 school year). Annual tuition (as of the 2019-2020 school year) is $66,130 for boarding students and $47,035 for day students, including meals, books, and fees. For the 2018-2019 school year, Webb offered $4.9 million in need-based financial aid awards.
The majority of ninth- and tenth-grade classes are taught in a single-sex environment. Co-educational courses are introduced to upperclassmen.The official student newspaper of The Webb Schools is the Webb Canyon Chronicle.
