Residential Life Curriculum
Webb’s middle school boarding program is a unique experience. In the evening, a mandatory bi-weekly curriculum focuses on skills needed to live away from home including: fostering independence, character development, leadership skills, and developing confidence. Within the residential curriculum, Webb nurtures each child’s social-emotional health as well as focuses on the academics.
The Residential Life program at Webb prides itself on developing a safe and caring community while letting the students find a real sense of self. Whether it’s in the classroom, on the athletic field or in the dorm, our residential faculty members play a key role in our boarders’ daily lives.
Middle School Program
The Middle School offers a rigorous academic program that prepares your child for upper school success. Students complete required courses in English and humanities, mathematics, history and world geography, science, world languages, art and music. The WILD (wilderness instruction and leadership development) course teaches outdoor skills.
The after lunch enrichment program gives students the opportunity to enroll in a variety of courses that allow them to pursue special interests and develop their talents. At Webb, we believe that each person has unique gifts and capacities and a responsibility to develop them.
Webb is a supportive community where students are challenged to succeed. Regardless of their daily schedule, faculty members have a special bond with the students in their dorm. The middle school curriculum at Webb is distinguished by personalized education, with a 7:1 student to teacher ratio. Small class sizes allow teachers to meet each student’s academic needs and offer support to foster success.
Safety & Security
Providing a safe and secure environment for the boarding community at Webb is our top priority. Located in the quaint and quiet town of Bell Buckle (population 500!), downtown is almost an extension of our campus. Webb students walk downtown for ice cream and the shop owners say a friendly hello and call them by name. At Webb, we pride ourselves in creating a safe place that students can call home.
