Life @ Webb

Multicultural Programming

The Webb School experience embodies more than outstanding academics. Our students actively participate and take on leadership roles in extracurricular activities, community service, athletics, the arts, international programs and more.

Webb School of Knoxville’s role in the life of its students goes beyond preparing them for successful college years. We are committed to promoting global understanding and citizenship, fostering a deep appreciation for the languages and cultures of the world, and an understanding of how the United States fits into a global context.

Our aim is to better prepare graduates for the multicultural, world community that they live in, and will successfully contribute to. Webb’s multicultural initiative recognizes the value that diversity brings to the total educational experience.
