Welcome to Woodstock Academy
Welcome to Woodstock Academy, an institution which was founded in 1801. The Academy is a co-educational, non-selective, independent secondary school serving students from the surrounding area and the world. The Academy community takes great pride in its comprehensive and diverse academic programs, opportunities for academic rigor and enrichment, long history and traditions, as well as the natural beauty of its surroundings.
The Academy is a student-centered school which emphasizes individual growth and development through student engagement in diverse instructional opportunities effectively managed by an empowered faculty, supported by a participating community, and characterized by the highest global values of a rapidly changing world.
The faculty and staff at the Academy truly believe what Nelson Mandela said about education, “education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” With this understanding, our students are afforded opportunities to learn the skills needed to be a change agent in their world, whether it be through the Model United Nations Program, the exchange program with Senegal, through various service opportunities our clubs offer, or in just the daily rigorous expectations the faculty and staff place on our students.
We have much to offer our students and, working in partnership with our families and the larger community, we are graduating students ready for what lies ahead; this enables our students to be successful no matter the path they choose to take.
Thank you for taking the time to visit. If there is anything we can do to make your visit more enjoyable, please do not hesitate to contact us.
