Webb: One of the Top Private Schools in the South

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.

It is our goal in the Admissions Office to reflect to you the same personal attention that our students currently receive from our faculty. I hope you find this Web site both engaging and informative. However, the best way to discover what makes Webb so special is to visit our campus. If you would like to schedule a visit, or if you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 1-888-SEE-WEBB or 931-389-6003.


Choosing the Right School for your Family

Your decision to consider an independent school is just the beginning. You must choose the right school from the hundreds available. The Webb School is a proud member of the National Association of Independent Schoools (NAIS). While all NAIS schools set high standards and emphasize values, they are wonderfully distinct from each other.

The best way to discover which school is right for you is to schedule a personal visit. However, before you visit, we suggest that you sit down with your family and determine your "ideal" educational community. After you consider the following questions, please feel free to contact our office at 1-888-733-9322 for any assistance.
