The Webb School:
Located in Bell Buckle,Tennessee, The Webb School is a private boarding and day school for students in grades 6-12. Our rigorous college preparatory school programs with SAT and AP courses offer the opportunities and support that prepare students for college. In our small boarding school community students learn the pride of hard work and the patience necessary to listen to others. They gain the confidence to express themselves, whether in one-on-one conversations or in front of the whole school. Most of all, you find the trust in yourself that you can succeed.
We seek candidates who are ready and willing to contribute to our school. In return, we know that our students will flourish by actively participating in our programs and by embracing Webb's emphasis on honor and personal integrity. We fully believe that by embracing each of these opportunities Webb graduates are prepared to become leaders in life.
The Webb School is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and holds membership in the National Association of Independent Schools, the Tennessee Association of Independent Schools, the National Honor Society, the Cum Laude Society, the College Board, the Educational Records Bureau, and the National Association of College Admissions Counseling.
The Webb School has 44 teaching faculty members, 43% of whom hold advanced degrees. The student-to-faculty ratio is 8:1 and the average class size is 12. Each faculty member serves as an advisor to a small group of students. Advisors work closely with their students in all aspects of their school life. Webb faculty routinely pursue professional development.
The residential program at Webb offers students wonderful opportunities to join a closely knitted community of approximately 100 students and adults on campus. Getting students involved in dorm life is crucial to making them feel at home.
Boarding students in grades 7-12 live in a supervised environment featuring four dormitories separated by gender and age. Our students live and learn under the guidance of our faculty house parents who monitor their academic progress and general well-being.
Boarding school students enjoy a variety of fun activities both on and off campus in addition to the academics typical of a challenging, independent college-preparatory school. These activities mostly take place during the weekend, but there are also opportunities during the week. Most boarding students are traditional 7-day boarding students, but there is a limited 5-day option for some students.
Webb has two male and two female dormitories. Students are assigned to a dorm on the basis of their grade. Each dorm has faculty members who support students in the dorm throughout the week. The dorm common rooms have a TV and DVD player along with computers and Internet connections. All dorms feature a wireless network.
Webb works to create an environment that encourages independence while providing its students with structure and support. Within the dorms is a network of faculty who are there not only to monitor, but also to offer advice and guidance to students who need it.
With a variety of weekend activities from which to choose, boarders are never at a loss for something to do. Activities range from professional and college level sporting events and concerts in Nashville to white water rafting and trips to area malls and movie theaters. Each dorm plans its own activities, as well. The dorms will go out to dinner, watch movies, go bowling, or whatever everyone decides to do.
