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 14 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.

Our small classroom environment (average class size is 12) allows the classroom to become a place of excitement. Spanish and French students share their experiences from our study abroad program. Physics students take to the outdoors to conduct experiments to explore gravity and velocity. Without question, Webb is a place geared for academic success. For many this kind of environment was a welcome change. "I came from big, big, public schools and the size of Webb's classes is really nice. You get a lot of individual attention and you can't really hide, which motivates you to get your work done," says one student. Webb's strong tradition of academic excellence - numerous National Merit Finalists and Semifinalists, SAT scores well above national avey arage, 99% of students getting 3 or better on most AP exams - is grounded in this personal attention.
