Parent Partnership

A strong partnership is key to growth.

Parents send a powerful message to their children when they get involved in their school community. Even as students grow older, they enjoy seeing their parents active in the life of the school. Webb’s commitment to providing a broad and deep menu of activities can only be achieved with the help of hundreds of volunteers. From supporting teachers in the classroom to organizing schoolwide events, our parents are superheroes!

Family Culture

The Webb community is an extension of your family. Alliances are formed early in the relationship and blossom over the years. New families are assigned host families several months before enrollment to help them acclimate to the community and to provide them with another valuable resource. Orientation sessions and family socials are also part of the transition. 

We host numerous events that allow parents to get to know one another, as well as the teachers who work with your child. Planned parent-teacher meetings are scheduled three times each year, while parent socials such as football tailgate parties are scattered throughout the school year.  

From your first day as a Spartan parent to years after your child graduates, you are a valued member of the Webb family. 

Parent Education

Knowledge is only power if we know what to do with it. Our Parent Education program attempts to bring perspective to the parenting role. Age-appropriate topics within each division help parents focus on salient areas of growth for the student and adult. Past topics have included social/emotional development, parenting with intention, adolescent growth, adolescent decision making, technology, illegal substance use/abuse, and athletic injury prevention. Webb's College Counseling Office also hosts several seminars during the year to help guide parents through the college search and application process.

In the Lower School Classroom

Showing their children that they value education, our parents play an active and vital role in the classroom in our Lower School. Parents participate in the VIP program, Writers Workshop, reading activities, and Science Olympiad, just to name a few. Special grade-level and divisional events throughout the year offer additional opportunities for parents to support our teachers.

Volunteer Opportunities


Balancing students’ hard work with fun, spirited activities is at the core of our annual fall community celebration. Parent volunteers begin working months in advance to plan the theme and the lineup of weeklong events. Special activities during daily assemblies and at lunch lead to a carnival on Friday for pre-K through eighth grade students and a Rock the Clock concert for older students, followed by a schoolwide barbecue dinner and a Spartan varsity football game.


Our annual celebration of the arts and community is held each spring. The three-day event boasts more than 60 professional artists from around the Southeast and beyond. Proceeds from ArtXtravaganza fund Webb's Artist-in-Residence program and support the school's visual and performing arts. ArtXtravaganza also features a student exhibition that allows the local community to experience the work of our budding artists. Parent volunteers coordinate almost every aspect of this highly successful event.
