Webb Invites Community To Visitors’ Day
Wednesday, February 3, 2010 11:20 am
The Webb School will open its campus to prospective students and their families on Monday, Feb. 15.
A full day of activities is planned beginning at 9 a.m. with registration and breakfast and concluding at 3 p.m. with individual student interviews.
The schedule includes campus tours, class visits for prospective students, informational panels for parents, lunch at Webb's Grace Follin Dining Hall, as well as details on boarding, admissions, financial aid and academic programs.
“Families will spend valuable time interacting with current students, faculty and current parents,” said Matt Anderson, Director of Operations in Admissions. “This event more than any other gives them the opportunity to truly see what it’s like to be a student at Webb.”
According to Anderson, February is a great time to visit Webb, as the school’s priority registration date is March 1. And, because Feb. 15 is a national holiday, Presidents' Day, most students enrolled in public schools have the day off and can attend with their parents.
This is Webb's second Visitors’ Day of the year. A similar event was hosted in January and more than 40 students and their families attended.
The Webb School is an independent college preparatory school for grades 6-12. The oldest continuously operating private school of its kind in the South, the school is known for its dual emphasis on academic excellence and character development.
