Why Webb?

The Webb School was founded in 1870 by Sawney Webb, a noted educator who made a permanent mark on the educational, political, religious, social and local affairs of his time. For the last 150 years, we've honored Sawney's vision for his school by preparing generators of scholars, makers, and doers to go out in the world and be heard.

 


I Choose Webb Because...

Dedicated Faculty

Teaching at a boarding school is a lifestyle. Students and teachers connect over meals, on sports teams, in the dorms after study hours, or while walking to class in the morning.

At Webb, teachers know and care for their students in a way that goes beyond the traditional day student's experience: they're living life alongside their students.

It's a Home Away from Home

Parents can know that their children are in an environment that nurtures and cares for them, and moreover, one that feels like home. Our rural and intimate setting promotes a focus on personal values, not materialism, so that student acceptance comes from within.

These unique qualities create what we call The Character of Home.

Your Child will Learn to be Independant

Boarding schools foster independence in a close, nurturing environment. From practicing basic responsibilities to learning social engagement on their own away from home, Webb students are encouraged to think and act for themselves in a way that facilitates the transition to college and eventually into their adult lives.

With the guidance of faculty, Webb boarding students learn to manage their time, handle daily tasks, and take on ownership for their academic work.

Welcoming Community

Attending The Webb School transforms you. Relationships with faculty, the warmth and comfort of the residential community, and friendships found in no other environment are only a few facets of a comprehensive education that will grow your child into a young adult prepared for life beyond high school.

Focused Mentorship

With the relationships you form, the focused mentorship you receive, the exceptional skills and life lessons you learn, you will leave boarding school a different person than when you arrived. You will enter a room with more confidence, regard your world with a fruitful curiosity, and accept every new challenge with capable enthusiasm. It’s a profound and lasting effect.
