Webb to host Visitors' Day on Jan. 21

The Webb School will open its campus on Jan. 21 for Visitors' Day to host prospective students and their families. The daylong event begins at 9 a.m. with registration and breakfast and concludes at 3 p.m.

The schedule includes the daily chapel program and also a tour of the 150-acre campus, led by a current Webb student. Visiting students will then attend lunch and class with a Webb student while parents attend informational panels regarding academic and extra-curricular programming and financial aid and scholarship opportunities. The day will conclude with a student Q&A panel for both visiting students and parents.

"We highly recommend spending a day on campus to experience the full benefits of a Webb education," said Julie Harris, director of enrollment management. "January 21 is an ideal day to visit since local schools are closed for the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday and it is before our priority early application deadline of February 20," added Harris.

Those planning to attend are asked to RSVP by Jan. 18 by emailing admissions@webbschool.com or calling 931-389-6003. Families who are unable to attend on January 21 are welcome to schedule a personal tour of campus Monday through Friday between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:00 pm. To schedule a personal campus visit, please call 931-389-6003.
