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.

At Woodward, we challenge our students to reach their fullest potential by offering 25 AP classes, a renowned Transition Program for students with mild learning differences, 86 student clubs, 75 yearly arts performances, and 18 varsity sports. Our Global Connections Program offers extensive international study abroad programs, and our innovative STEAM programs are woven into the curriculum at every step of the way.
