The Webb School
|The Webb School was founded in 1870 by Williarm R. "Sawney" Webb. His goal was to build moral character, make ladies and gentlemen of his students, and prepare them for any challenge that may come their way. This has been accomplished for over 140 years through a solid liberal arts education, a strong sense of honor, and an interactive school community. The Webb School has produced 10 Rhodes Scholars and its graduates have gone on to attend prestigious colleges and universities across the nation and to lead important, successful and fulfilling lives in business, education, politics and the arts. It is our intention to keep this tradition alive by providing a sound education combined with high moral values.

Community Service Program
|The Webb School, guided by our core values of honor, integrity and civility, motivates young men and women to fulfill their promise. Our community of 310 male and female students is small by design, creating lifelong connections while fostering greater involvement and individual growth. These students have diverse backgrounds, personalities and interests, truly bringing the world to Webb. And with a legacy of service and graduates active in the global marketing place, Webb impacts the world.
To put it simply, it’s cool to be smart at Webb. We develop confident, creative, and critical thinkers one question at a time. Webb offers 10 AP courses along with other very challenging classes. But we truly break the mold with our public performance program, which fosters our students’ emerging voices while developing their academic passions.
Webb’s 150-acre campus is located 50 minutes south of Nashville, Tennessee in historic Bell Buckle. This rural and intimate setting promotes a focus on personal values and intellectual growth – creating a refuge from societal pressures and distractions.
Most importantly, respect goes both ways at Webb. Honor, integrity, and civility are at our core and we hold the line to those ideals. This has been a hallmark of Webb throughout our 140 year history, and our students take pride in upholding this tradition.
All of these unique qualities create what we call The Character of Home. We invite you to explore our Web site to learn more about Webb.
