"I pledge my word of honor as a Webb gentleman or lady that I will not lie, cheat, or steal."
With a variety of weekend activities from which to choose, boarders are never at a loss for something to do.
This year, we have students from 23 countries. We would love to add your country.
Ireland? Paris? Québec? Scotland? Vietnam? Come and visit the world with us!
"Do Nothing on the Sly"
This simple, direct statement forms the basic foundation of Webb School's honor code. The sentence was a frequent admonition of the School's founder, Sawney Webb and was translated into Latin as the School's motto: "Noli Res Subdole Facere."
The Honor Pledge is signed by all students at the beginning of each academic year. It states: "I pledge my word of honor as a Webb gentleman or lady that I will not lie, cheat, or steal."
Less than an hour away from Webb, Nashville thrives with an ever-present creative vibe and entrepreneurial spirit. Its roots are deeply felt throughout the street art, creative culture and award-winning food. And that spirit extends to family-friendly fun, fan-filled football and unforgettable historical attractions.
At Webb, extra-curricular activities are just as important as academics. Clubs and organizations are a way for students to gain important leadership skills and learn how to communicate and work together. They also are a way for students to explore their interests, get involved, and make a difference!
Clubs meet during the academic day, so students can still be involved while also participating in after-school activities such as sports or theater. If a student has a certain passion or interest, and wants to start up his/her own club, that student can! He/She just needs to find a faculty member to sponsor the club, and then recruit other students to join.
Ireland and Scotland with Mr. Quinn
Travel for 10 days with Mr. Quinn to Dublin, Belfast, Edinburgh, Loch Ness, the Scottish Highlands and more.
Dublin, capital of the Republic of Ireland, is on Ireland’s east coast at the mouth of the River Liffey. Its historic buildings include Dublin Castle, dating to the 13th century, and imposing St Patrick’s Cathedral, founded in 1191.
Québec City with Mr. Simpson
Explore Québec City in all its winter glory with Monsieur and Madame Simpson during Winter Break 2022 (Feb. 10-13)! This trip is open to all students who will be in 8th grade or above at the time of the trip. Knowledge of French isn't required, but French students of all levels will have many opportunities to use the language.
Webb instills in our students a commitment of service to others. Whether it's a local cause like tutoring elementary students in the area, or a more global one such as a service-learning trip to Costa Rica, Webb students have a giving spirit and are committed to helping others.
By the time they graduate, Webb seniors must have completed at least 70 hours of community service. They may always use summers to accumulate these hours and Webb offers many internal opportunities throughout the year for students to accumulate hours. Many of our students go beyond the minimum graduation requirement!
