Upper School Program
Our Upper School Fine Arts Program
With both an international and national reputation, The Webb School's Fine Arts program is admired for the breadth of its course offerings and the outstanding quality of the school's faculty. Upper level students at Webb (grades 9-12) are required to take one class in the Fine Arts each year, three of which must be in a different area of the Fine Arts.
The faculty members, who have degrees from some of America's finest conservatories and universities, give their students both outstanding instruction (in private lessons and classes) and insiders' views of the fine arts as working professionals.
Advanced Placement Courses
Academics at Webb are challenging and engaging. We strive for our students to be inspired by their passions and motivated to be the best that they can be. There are AP and honors courses, as well as unique electives offered within each discipline. We know that our graduates are true global citizens who are not only prepared for college, but also eager to make a difference in the world.
Our 21 AP courses include Science, Math, History, World Languages, English, Fine Arts and Social Sciences.
McDonnell-Follin Scholars Program
The McDonnell-Follin Scholars Program supports the in-depth study of an academic area by a student in the junior class for one semester while being supported by a member of the faculty or administration. It is a student-driven program wherein the student will create the course of study in consultation with the proposed mentor.
The mentor and student will meet one or two times per week to check on the progress and development of new ideas. At the end of the semester the student will present his/her work to a faculty committee who will then ask questions of the student about his/her research.
