On Nov. 9, The Webb School will open its campus for prospective students and their families for Visitors' Day. The daylong event begins at 9 a.m. with registration and breakfast and concludes at 3 p.m.
The schedule includes campus tours, class visits, student panels, informational panels for parents, lunch, as well as details on boarding, admissions, financial aid and academic programs. Families are also invited to stay on campus for applicant interviews and the 7 p.m. staging of "The Schoolmaker," Webb's fall play based on a book written about Webb founder, W.R. "Sawney" Webb.
"Families will spend valuable time interacting with current students, faculty and current parents," said Julie Harris, director of 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 Harris, fall is a great time to visit Webb because it gives families time to decide if Webb is the right school choice well before the school's priority application deadline of Feb. 15.
Those planning to attend are asked to RSVP by Nov. 5 to email@example.com or call 931-389-6003.
