I just finished my first semester of college, and I felt very prepared because of the experience and college-like a how to work effectively. For example, I gained the study skills needed to do well on my exams, while other students in my classes, who had attended larger high schools, did not know how to prepare for a major test. I also had close relationships with my teachers, making it easier to approach my college professors with confidence."

The private boarding/day school education at Webb focuses on the whole student. Our rigorous college preparatory programs offer the opportunities and support that ready students for a successful college career.  Webb students become accountable to themselves for their performance inside and out of the classroom. In our small boarding school environment students learn the pride of hard work and the patience necessary to accomplish tasks. They gain the confidence to express themselves through writing and public speaking. Ultimately, Webb students become accountable to themselves for their successes in and out of the classroom.

Our personalized approach to education creates an environment where students and teachers are able to actively engage in conversation about the material. With a student to teacher ratio of 6:1 and an average class size of 10, Webb's classrooms become a place where students feel comfortable sharing their opinions, asking questions, and opening discussions. Without question, Webb is a place geared toward encouraging ongoing learning and academic success.

Cultivate in the student a sense of self-reliance by teaching him to think and not merely to accumulate facts - the accumulation of facts being desirable only as furnishing material for thought.
