The mission of The Webb Schools is to provide an exemplary learning community that nurtures and inspires boys and girls to become men and women who:

  • Think boldly, mindfully, and creatively,
  • Act with honor and moral courage,
  • Lead with distinction
  • Serve with a generous spirit.

The entire school community is dedicated to preparing our students to be leaders in both their public and private lives. Webb aspires to personal and community integrity through action characterized by the virtues of honesty, responsibility, respect, fairness and compassion. In the end, Webb graduates will have developed the desire, skills, and courage to take risks, to be passionate, to empathize, and to engage the intellect, the imagination, and the heart in their own individual endeavors and for the greater good.

To these ends, every part of the Webb experience reflects our commitment and dedication to:

Respect the formative educational differences of boys and girls through a unique approach to single-sex education that helps boys and girls grow in confidence while learning to respect and appreciate one another.

Develop habits of mind that prepare students for the kind of creative and critical thinking that is needed in our complex global society. This includes providing abundant opportunities for exploration, discovery and unbounded thinking.

Maintain the highest standards of honor by teaching and modeling virtues of enduring worth: honesty, responsibility, respect, fairness and compassion.

Transform students’ lives through a meaningful boarding experience that nurtures independence alongside trust, empathy, leadership and a sense of belonging.
