- Woodward Academy
With 2,500 students across two campuses spanning 133-acres, complemented by the intimacy of a 6:1 student-teacher ratio, Woodward offers the vast resources and opportunities of a college or university coupled with the intimacy and attention of home. Woodward is a place for students to come together with compassion and respect, a place for nurturing conversation and understanding. At the core of our belief is that all people are innately valuable as they were created, and it is that identity, that energy, that charges our students and graduates with a mission: Make a difference. Serve others. Engage the world with empathy and passion. This shared purpose is something we call The Woodward Way.
Our teachers offer wise guidance every step of the way, from pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. We offer unparalleled opportunities in academics, the arts, and athletics as well as prolific cocurricular opportunities. Our emphasis on service learning prepares students to become engaged and giving citizens of the world. Deep respect for difference is at the very core of our identity in this inclusive community shared by families from 23 metro Atlanta counties, representing all racial and ethnic backgrounds, religious traditions, learning styles, and ways of life.
Woodward Academy will be the national model in college-preparatory education.
Woodward Academy is Atlanta at its very best. We intentionally bring together students from diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences, creating a richer learning community and exceptional academic opportunities. Our students and graduates are caring and compassionate global citizens who are a microcosm of what the world should be.
