BELL BUCKLE, Tenn. – On Nov. 8, The Webb School will open its campus to prospective students and their families for its annual Fall Visitors’ Day. The daylong event begins at 9 a.m. with registration and breakfast and concludes at 3 p.m.
The schedule includes a tour of the 150-acre campus that will be led by a current Webb student. Visiting students will then attend lunch and class with a Webb student, while parents have lunch and then participate in informational panels regarding academics, affordability, and extracurricular programs. The day will conclude with a student Q&A panel for both visiting students and parents. Families are also invited to stay on campus for applicant interviews with an admissions team member.
“This is the first scheduled Visitors’ Day for our 150th anniversary school year,” said Julie Harris, director of enrollment management. “It has been an exciting year for our students and faculty, and we look forward to celebrating this milestone with our prospective families as well.” According to Harris, the Fall Visitors’ Day event is a great time to visit Webb because it gives families the ability to experience a typical day at Webb. The event is also scheduled well before the priority application and financial aid deadline of Feb. 20, 2020. Additionally, Bedford County School will be closed on Nov. 8 so students from that county will not have to miss school to attend the event.
Those planning to attend are asked to RSVP by Nov. 6 by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 931-389-6003. Families can also RSVP by clicking the “Schedule a Visit” button on the homepage of the school’s website www.thewebbschool.com.
