A Guided Independence

A GUIDED INDEPENDENCE

Student Life at The Webb Schools

 

Growing Self-Confidence and Self-Awareness

At Webb we offer students Faculty Engagement Outside the Classroom:

◆ Weekly Class Activities with Class Advisors

◆ Weekly Advisor Meetings (and often more)

◆ Student Counseling Program and Health Center Services

◆ Student Health and Wellness Curriculum by Grade

◆ Chapel 2-3 times a week with Faculty and Student Speakers

◆ Afternoon Activities and Athletics

◆ A Rich Dormitory Life for Boarding Students

◆ A Rich Weekend Program for All Students

◆ Alf Museum Peccary Trips

◆ Spring and Summer Immersive Travel Programs with Faculty

◆ Culminating Senior Experiences—Grand Canyon and Yosemite’s Half Dome

Note :

As a student, if you have a really good teacher at another school, a public school or independent school, you’d see that teacher 5 hours a week for 14 weeks—70 hours a semester. At Webb your first 3 days of retreat give you 72 hours and school hasn’t even started yet. These relationships will be among the most powerful, the most indelible on their lives—without question.

Growing Civic Connection and Responsibility

At Webb we believe in building and supporting community, our own, and beyond. We work very hard to nurture in students a sense of personal responsibility for the well-being of communities they join.

◆ Honor Education Programs

◆ Community Service Programs

◆ Class Advisory and Individual Advisory

◆ The Chapel Program

◆ Honor Committee and Honor Cabinet

◆ Student Leadership in the Dormitories and for Day Students

◆ Community Building through Class Leadership within ASB

◆ Spring and Summer Immersive Travel includes Service Programs


Student Life at The Webb Schools

Practicing Authentic Leadership

At Webb we believe in helping every student develop a set of leadership skills, including self-reflection and evaluation of personal strengths and weaknesses, how to work as a productive part of a team, and then also how to represent and lead a group, team, or organization.

◆ Coordinate Structure Doubles Leadership Opportunities for Boys and Girls

◆ Service Opportunities within Afternoon Activities Programs

◆ Class Advisory and Individual Advisory Program

◆ The Chapel Program

◆ Learning to Lead through Team Athletics

◆ Learning to Lead through Service in the Arts

Final Note:

The care of our students is our paramount responsibility. To accomplish this great work our faculty work 24/7 in every aspect of student life. Beyond teaching this includes student advising, class advising, trip advising, dormitory oversight, coaching, afternoon activities, weekend activities, club and student leadership advising, and more. A boarding school is only as good as its faculty. We are fortunate at Webb to be among the best. To learn more about our faculty, visit Webb's Faculty Profiles page.
