Spring & Summer Travel

The Webb Schools offer optional domestic and international trips during school breaks as an extension of our academic program. Our goal with these trips is to provide student travelers with defining experiences that help them expand their world views. Our trips promote unbounded thinking, global fluency, and global citizenship through field study, cultural exploration, language immersion, and community service.

Frequently Asked
Questions

Yes, parents of speakers are welcome to attend chapel, but seating preference is given to our students.

Cell phones are not to be used in classes or in public areas.

 

For faculty members or advisors, email is preferable. Boarding parents should establish with their child’s advisor how often they would like to be contacted. When contacting the deans, it is the parent’s preference as to whether phone or email works best.

We do offer summer storage to our boarding students. Contact Romana Quick in the Student Store for more details — rquick@webb.org.

There are several kinds of passes available:

Tuesday Dinner Pass. After 5:15 p.m. most Tuesdays, students who have no further obligations may sign out for dinner with their parents, another student’s parents, or a faculty member. Students should sign out in their dorms. Students must be back on campus for evening study period by 7:30 p.m. Freshmen, sophomores and juniors may not use a dinner pass for any purpose other than to go to dinner with their parent, another student’s parents or a faculty member. On most Tuesdays, seniors may take a dinner pass with their parents, another student’s parents, adults other than their parents, or with Webb day students, provided they receive permission from the dean of students.

Day (6-hour) Pass. On weekends, students are permitted to leave campus for a maximum of six hours by utilizing a day pass. Day passes are taken by completing an accurate entry in the Weekend Sign-Out Binder. Students using day passes are expected to go to appropriate and safe destinations and must use only approved transportation for any such activity. Students who walk or ride bikes off-campus must return before dark and must carry a form of identification (e.g. school ID) with them. Freshmen must always leave campus in groups of two or more.

Students may take more than one pass per day as long as the total does not exceed six hours, but may also participate in a school-sponsored trip on the same day that a day pass is used.

Students may take a 6-hour pass beginning at 4 p.m. Friday afternoons and evenings, provided they have met all other obligations and that the pass does not conflict with required, school-scheduled activities. They must sign out carefully and fully, use approved transportation and be sure to return and sign in by 10:45 p.m. Freshmen must return to campus on the weekends by 10 p.m. unless on a school-sanctioned trip. Students may sign out any time Saturday, provided that the pass does not conflict with required, school-scheduled activities. All students on campus must sign in with an adult anytime between 11:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Saturday. On Sundays, all students must be on campus and signed in by 5:30 p.m.

Vacation & Breaks. Students are not permitted to leave for vacation before the conclusion of their last commitment on the day vacation begins. Parents should plan travel arrangements accordingly. When making travel arrangements, students are to vacate the dorms no later than 7 p.m. on the day vacation begins. Transportation to and from local airports may be made through the student services coordinator in the Student Store.

Students must return to campus between 3 and 9 p.m. on the last day of vacation. Students unable to return by 9 p.m. must contact their dorm head or security.

Students check in for breakfast by 8:15 a.m. Classes begin at 8:30. Students have a mid-morning break to go to meetings, assemblies or chapel and a 40-minute lunch period mid-day. Classes end at 3:00 on most days. After class, students participate in our afternoon program from 3:35 p.m. to 5:15. Dinner begins at 6:00 and study hours are from 7:45 to 10:00 p.m..

Cell phone or email. See the policy above regarding the use of phones on campus.

Webb.org/athletics has the most up to date information.

Webb has an extensive support system to help students make the transition to boarding school life. Each student is assigned a faculty/staff advisor. There are approximately eight students for every advisor. Advisors and advisees meet weekly and build very strong relationships. Advisors monitor student progress in three main areas: academics, extra-curricular activities and residential life. In addition, each dorm has a faculty member assigned as the dorm head. This faculty member resides in or next-door to their assigned dorm. Dorm heads oversee the dorm program, conduct weekly dorm meetings and are the senior adult in charge in case of emergencies.

Upperclassmen also play a critical role in helping new students adjust to life at Webb. All students can readily turn to a senior student leader, known as a dorm counselor (VWS) or a dorm prefect (WSC), who is available to help with a whole variety of situations from providing study-break pizza to lending a sympathetic ear. Also, all new students are assigned a Peer Advisor who helps with meeting people and becoming integrated into the community.
