Welcome to Webb
As an institution with world-class aspirations, we continuously reimagine how we can support our students in going farther and going further. Building on an exceptional synergy of over 60 years of educating students in Knoxville, TN, our educators look forward, not back. Our students deserve a dynamic, intentionally designed program that prepares them to think critically, communicate confidently, and lead honorably.
"Your teachers will try to teach you to build strong bodies . . . train your intelligence . . . give you a strong sense of values so you will always know right from wrong. They will try very hard to teach you how to study, and last, but not least, they will try to teach you how to think."
– ROBERT WEBB, FOUNDER & HEADMASTER
